Former Led Zeppelin star Robert Plant has joined the line-up for a cancer charity's fundraising concert after losing close friends to the disease.
The rock legend, as well as The Who, Jeff Beck and Debbie Harry, will take to the stage in London for A Concert For Killing Cancer, to raise funds for trials in photodynamic therapy (PDT) treatment.
Plant's manager Bill Curbishley explains the reason behind the star's participation: "Robert and I had lived through the final months and days of close friends battling with cancer, but also fighting to overcome the effects of their treatments. Only later we discovered that PDT could perhaps have saved their lives - and certainly given them some dignity in their final weeks."
The gig will take place at the Hammersmith Apollo on 13 January (11).
