LOS ANGELES, July 13 (UPI) -- The long-running British rock band The Who has been honored by a bevy of fellow rockers at a VH1 charity event in Los Angeles, the cable network says.

The third annual "VH1 Rock Honors" show on the University of California-Los Angeles campus paid tribute to The Who with performances by bands such as The Flaming Lips and Pearl Jam, VH1 noted in a news release Sunday.

"VH1 Rock Honors: The Who," which also included performances by the Foo Fighters and Tenacious D, raised more than $1 million for various charities. Among those charities are the Teenage Cancer

Trust and The VH1 Save the Music Foundation.

Celebrities such as "The Office" star Rainn Wilson, actor David Duchovny and comedian Adam Sandler attended Saturday's event to pay individual tribute to the "Tommy" rockers.

The star-studded event will be aired on VH1 Thursday and also will be available online Rock.VH1.com the same day.
