Legendary front of The Who Roger Daltrey has joined forces with Babyshambles for a spectacular charity show last night (January 12th), it has been reported.

Daltrey is a patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust, and has done much work on its behalf. The singer took time off from his schedule with The Who to play the special one off date with Doherty, with the Bristol show designed to raise money for the Moonfest charity.

The pair teamed up on a number of classics drawn from The Who's back catalogue, notably including 'Substitute' and 'Magic Bus'. The two were backed by Babyshambles throughout, also performing a series of Johnny Cash covers during the show.

The pair dedicated the show to the memory of Daniel Squiers, a cancer sufferer who died aged just 16. Squiers struck up a friendship with Daltrey and Doherty, with the The Who's singer calling him "a special lad" drawing a huge ovation from the crowd.
