'We thought we could cancel it after two years, but go on as long as we thought we were able,' The Who's rocker says.

Roger Daltrey is stunned by the success of his annual cancer charity gigs in the U.K. - because the star was convinced he'd have to cancel the residency at London's Royal Albert Hall after just two years. The Who rocker founded the Teenage Cancer Trust concert series in 2000, and has played with his band on four different occasions, as well as signing up stars including Noel Gallagher, Ronnie Wood and Chris Martin to perform.

And Daltrey admits he's shocked the shows have remained so popular. He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I'm amazed. It seems like yesterday that we started. I wanted to do something about the problem that teenage cancer sufferers have and I was determined to stick with it."

"Straight away we booked the hall for 12 years - you had to book it well in advance to be able to get it for the same week every year. We thought we could cancel it after two years, but go on as long as we thought we were able."

"Here we are, 10 years later, and I'm amazed at the support I've had from the music and comedy industry."
