New acts announced for Teenage Cancer Trust 2017
Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall returns for the event’s 17th Year and has a host of special acts to help celebrate. As well as The Who performing on March 30th, Olly Murs, Teenage Cancer Trust supporter Paul Weller and the iconic Pet Shop Boys (April 2nd) with guitar legend Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, complete the 2017 line up.
Teenage Cancer Trust’s legendary comedy night will also take place with some of Britain’s best-loved comedians – hosted by Romesh Ranganathan, and will include guests Jo Brand and Kevin Bridges, plus more big names to be announced soon.
Since 2000, over 225 bands and artists have played Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, raising over £24 million. Those incredible shows have played a vital role in helping the charity to provide 28 specialist cancer units and over 60 nursing and support staff in NHS hospitals across the UK, making an incredible difference to young people diagnosed with cancer around the country.
The 100th show will be played, adding to an extraordinary legacy that has seen unique, once in a lifetime performances like Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn sharing a stage in 2013, Sir Paul McCartney in 2012, plus everyone from Muse to The Cure, Tinie Tempah, Florence + The Machine, Ed Sheeran, Kasabian, Stereophonics, Paul Weller, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Sir Tom Jones and many more. And, of course, some of the greatest concerts of the past 20 years from The Who.
