Stars assemble for the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts
Teenage Cancer Trust returned to the Royal Albert Hall for their 17th Year and it was a very special event. The charity welcomed one of Britain’s biggest popstars, Olly Murs for the first time, Ed Sheeran performed to his faithful fans and Modfather and valued Teenage Cancer Trust supporter Paul Weller and the brilliant Pet Shop Boys with guitar legend Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, also graced the stage.
Teenage Cancer Trust’s legendary comedy night continued this year with some of Britain’s best-loved comedians – hosted by Romesh Ranganathan, with guests including Jo Brand, Kevin Bridges, Tom Allen, Russell Kane and Mike Wilmott.
And this year, the 100th show was played by the The Who and Teenage Cancer Trust’s ambassador Roger Daltrey, who performed a new acoustic presentation of ‘Tommy’.
As well as headline acts, famous faces such as Sadiq Khan, David Beckham, Dermot O’Leary and Sadie Frost showed their support for Teenage Cancer Trust, proving how magical and meaningful the shows really are.
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.
