Liam Gallagher‘s live appearance with The Who‘s backing band – Simon Townshend, Pino Palladino, Billy Nicholls, Frank Simes, Loren Gold, John Coury and Zak Starkey – has had its details officially confirmed after rumours first surfaced last week.

At the Shepherds Bush Empire in London on November 11th, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend will take a back seat and allow a number of special guests to perform their own individually chosen Who tracks during a night which will raise money for Daltrey’s Teenage Cancer Trust charity.

Also confirmed are Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder, Wilko Johnson, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson, Manic Street PreachersJames Dean Bradfield, Geddy Lee, The Strypes, Brody Dalle, Tom Odell, Amy Macdonald, Andy Burrows and Rizzle Kicks.

Liam Gallagher is expected to pick a cover of ‘My Generation‘ to mark what will be his first public engagement since the break-up of Beady Eye was confirmed via a short Twitter message during the weekend.

Thanking fans for their support, Gallagher abruptly revealed the band – which he formed with fellow former Oasis members Gem Archer and Andy Bell in the immediate aftermath of Noel Gallagher‘s infamous 2009 Gallic walkout – had come to an end after two studio albums; 2011’s ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding‘ and last year’s ‘BE‘.
