LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - The third annual "VH1 Rock Honors" event will celebrate The Who, with the music cable network hosting a tribute concert in Los Angeles on July 12.

The Who, led by guitarist Pete Townshend and singer Roger Daltrey, will take the stage at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion; VH1 has not revealed the names of the participants.

The concert will air on VH1, VH1 Classic and hi-def network MHD on July 17 at 9 p.m.

Besides live performances, "VH1 Rock Honors" will include spoken tributes and video packages dedicated to the band.

Last year's "VH1 Rock Honors," held in Las Vegas, paid tribute to Genesis, Heart, Ozzy Osbourne and ZZ Top.
