Bryan Adams joins KILLING Cancer concert
Bryan Adams has joined the bill of the KILLING Cancer charity show.
The Canadian rocker joins The Who, Jeff Beck, The Verve's Richard Ashcroft and Blondie legend Debbie Harry for the concert which is being held at London's HMV Hammersmith Apollo on January 13, 2011.
The event is being held to raise money for the charity which funds research into pioneering cancer treatment Photodynamic Therapy (PDT).
The little-known therapy is said to be able to kill cancer cells with a single treatment, which works with a combination of light and a drug that switches off the oxygen reaching the target cells.
The concert is being masterminded by promoter Harvey Goldsmith and Bill Curbishley, manager of The Who, both of whom have lost people close to them to cancer.
Guitar legend Beck said: "I am pleased to be asked to support such a vital cause. Any new breakthrough in cancer treatment should be taken very seriously and we want as many people to know about that as possible.
"The concert is not just going to raise funds to pay for new PDT trials, but will also help raise public awareness."
Tickets for the concert will go on sale from www.hmvtickets.com next Friday (19.11.10).Posted on 12 Nov 2010 17:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
