Roger Daltrey will receive the Outstanding Contribution Award at the Live UK Music Business Awards in London next week, which take place alongside the Live UK Summit conference at the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel next Thursday.

The prize is in part in recognition at The Who man’s role in fund-raising for the Teenage Cancer Trust, in particular via the annual concerts staged in aid of the charity at the Royal Albert Hall each Spring.

A statement from the awards’ organisers notes: “The success of The Who worldwide coupled with his work for teenage cancer sufferers makes Roger Daltrey a most worthy recipient of this award”.
