The February 28th Who Cares benefit concert in New York City by the Who and Elvis Costello & The Imposters raised over $1.6 million for the Teen Cancer America Unit at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The concert, held at Manhattan’s Theater at Madison Square Garden, featured the two bands running through separate sets of their greatest hits, with Costello closing his portion with a roaring version of the Who’s own 1966 classic, “Substitute” before the Who hit the stage. The benefit, which featured the Who stretching out from their recent Quadrophenia-filled setlists, was the final show of the band’s 2012-2013 North American tour.

Both Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are the driving force behind Teen Cancer America. After more than a decade of working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK, they’re now committed to making a difference in the lives of teens and young adults with cancer to the United States.
