Def Leppard, Nile Rodgers & Chic, UB40 featuring Ali, Astro & Mickey, and Roger Daltrey have been announced as the next set of headliners for this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at the Royal Albert Hall. They join the previously announced Kasabian and The Courteeners.
Also added to the series of week-long concerts is funny man Russell Howard who will head up an evening of comedy.
The Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at the Royal Albert Hall run 19 – 25 March.
The Teenage Cancer Trust shows have now become an established event at the Albert Hall. Conceived by The Who’s frontman Roger Daltrey, the shows raise money to improve the cancer experience of young people aged 13 - 24. In 2005, Roger was awarded a CBE by the Queen at Buckingham Palace for his services to music and good causes.
Since 2000, over 235 artists and comedians have played Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall and have raising over £27 million for young people with cancer.
Speaking of this year’s event, Daltrey said: “We’re now into our 18th year of Teenage Cancer Trust Shows at the Royal Albert Hall and in that time these concerts have raised well over £25 million, as well as giving the Teenage Cancer Trust a voice to educate the public about the special needs of this group within the NHS.”
He continued: “This year’s line up is as varied as ever with our good friends Kasabian making a welcome return as is UB40. Chic featuring the incomparable Nile Rodgers will be making their Royal Albert Hall debut, and The Courteeners will be playing a one-off London show celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut album. There will also be a special show from me and my band featuring Who hits as well as some songs the Who never played live. Rounding off the week will be Sheffield’s finest Def Leppard playing their first UK show in three years.”
