MUSE, PAUL WELLER, STEVE CRADOCK, THE FRATELLIS, DUFFY & NOEL FIELDING TO PERFORM AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL FOR TEENAGE CANCER TRUST
Marking its 8th year, the biggest names in rock music and comedy are coming together for The Teenage Cancer Trust Gigs at the Royal Albert Hall. These gigs are one of the most eagerly anticipated dates in the music calendar, each year selling out in record time and raising vital funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The gigs begin with a night of comedy on Wednesday, hosted by TCT regular Noel Fielding and joined by special comedy guests. Thursday night will see the return of the legendary ‘Mod-Father’ Paul Weller, joined by Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock and hotly-tipped soul singer, Duffy. Friday is a not-to be missed show by the mighty Fratellis, and the finale to this year’s series of concerts will be headlined by one of Britain’s most ambitious live acts, Brit nominated Muse.
The TCT gigs were the brainchild of The Who’s Roger Daltrey CBE, patron of Teenage Cancer Trust, who has once again persuaded the best of British talent available across rock, pop and comedy to give up their time to raise money for this unique charity.
Announcing this year’s line-up, Roger Daltrey said: “These shows, now in their eighth year, continue to help Teenage Cancer Trust raise essential funds to build specialist teenage cancer units within the NHS. The UK is a world leader in providing this support for teenagers with cancer and in 2008, the charity will open five new units and will start building work on a further two. This means that many more teenagers with cancer will have access to one of our units and will get the support they need to fight this disease.”
