For the 18th year, the charity pulls in iconic line-ups to play the iconic Royal Albert Hall in the capital.
This year is no different. Bands featuring this year include indie rockers Kasabian, Manchester’s Courteneers, Def Leppard and UB40 Featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey.
During the week Russell Howard will lead the way with an evening of comedy, whilst solo legend Nile Rodgers will add some Chic songs during the week.
Also performing will be Who frontman and patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust, Roger Daltrey, who helps organises the event and was awarded CBE in 2005 for his services to music and good causes.
“These incredible shows have played a vital role in making sure the charity can provide specialist support to young people with cancer across the UK. But for every young person Teenage Cancer Trust currently supports, there’s another they can’t,” says Daltrey. “The artists who play these shows and people who come along to see them will help the charity take big steps towards being able to support every young person who needs them,” he told the official website.
