Be a roadie for
The Who, the ultimate fan experience
(Sat June 15)
This is a one of a kind, once in a lifetime experience. Get up in the morning and join the road crew as they assemble and prepare the stage and the venue for the day's performance. The winner will spend the day working with the crew as a "roadie", helping assemble the stage, organising and preparing for The Who Quadrophenia
show on Saturday, June 15 at O2 in London.
The winner will have a bird's-eye view of how a huge rock show is assembled from that unique vantage point: not just behind the stage, but actually right there in the middle of it.
The winner will be given a videotape of the day's activities to keep as a memento, and have a chance to interact with band members. The winner will be given some souvenir special guitar picks, and have a photograph taken with Roger Daltrey or Pete Townshend -- or if they are around, both together!
No singing required!
Winner needs to be over 18, physically fit, and is expected to conduct themselves in a discreet fashion as a member of the road crew from morning until after the show and all of the gear is loaded up in the trucks. The winner will be insured along with the crew and any info needed by the insurance company will be required.
The Brain Tumour
Research Campaign was started in 2004 by Wendy Fulcher who lost her husband
to a brain tumour. Their vision is to raise public awareness of the urgent
need for brain tumour research, to lead a fundraising campaign to support
research into and treatment of brain tumours, and to assist the emergence of
the UK's first multi-disciplinary Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence
at Charing Cross Hospital in West London.
Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40,
the fastest growing cancer among the elderly population, and have one of the
lowest survival rates of all cancers. Yet less than 1% of national cancer
funding is spent on brain tumour research in the UK. Learn more at
