Roger Daltrey performed an acoustic set at a charity fundraiser in America last night (28.10.14).

The Who rocker co-hosted the Strowger Trust Fundraiser For Teen Cancer America in Los Angeles in aid of the charity he founded with bandmate Pete Townshend and also took the time to perform a selection of his best-known hits for guests including Sadie Frost, Cat Deeley, Matt Goss, Liberty Ross and Sam Taylor-Johnson.

Over 30 artists, including Damien Hirst, the Chapman Brothers and Antony Gormley, donated works to be auctioned on the night, while Pete Tong manned the decks.

Teen Cancer America was founded by The Who stars to improve the lives of teenagers and young adults with cancer, echoing the work they do in the UK with the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Roger, 70, has previously spoken about how the charity helps young people fighting the disease.

He said: "At a time when your body is changing, your social life is everything and you're still trying to figure out who you are, getting cancer can seem like an impossible blow to take. But thanks to Teenage Cancer Trust, thousands of teenagers are taking it, and coming out fighting."
