The Teenage Cancer Trust has announced the lineup for their annual concert season at the Royal Albert Hall in London in March.
Among the acts to perform this year – the ninth year the concerts have been held – are Kasabian and the Stereophonics. The concerts will culminate in a night of comedy hosted by Matthew Horne and James Corden, the stars of British TV series Gavin and Stacey.
“It’s great we can continue to support Teenage Cancer Trust and help them make a difference,” said Kasabian lead singer, Tom Meighan. “We were inspired after meeting some of the teenagers with cancer at our gigs last year and it really made us want to do more for the charity.”
“At a time when your body is changing, your social life is everything and you’re trying to figure out who you are, getting cancer can seem like an impossible blow to take,” said Daltrey when he announced the lineup for the 2009 shows. "But thanks to The Teenage Cancer Trust, thousands of teenagers are taking it and coming out fighting.
“Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall raises essential funds to support the charity’s work. There will be seven completely new units built between now and the end of 2009. Everything about these specialist units has been designed to give teenagers the very best chance of a positive outcome. So show your support by coming to one of the gigs or making a donation.”
The 2009 Teenage Cancer Trust shows are as follows:
- Tuesday March 24th – Antony and the Johnsons with Florence and the Machine
- Thursday March 26th: Stereophonics plus special guests
- Friday March 27th: Kasabian plus special guests
- Sunday March 29th: An evening of comedy hosted by Mathew Horne and James Corden
Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 13. Information about where to buy them can be found at the Teenage Cancer Trust website.
