From Planet Rock.
The Who have confirmed a headline show at London’s Royal Albert Hall next month as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust concert series.
Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and co. will play the world-famous London venue on Saturday 28th March, 20 years on from their performance at the inaugural Teenage Cancer Trust concerts in 2000.
Also featuring headline performances from comedian John Bishop, Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Groove Armada and Nile Rodgers & CHIC, the line-up has once again been curated by Roger Daltrey, who is a patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Roger comments: “When we were asked to play the first Teenage Cancer Trust concert back in 2000, we would never have dreamed that we’d be headlining again in 2020…or could have possibly imagined the huge difference these shows would have for the charity and, on the lives of thousands of teenagers and young people with cancer.
“All the acts have given up their time for free, and this year the artists are absolute legends. It’s also incredible to have three artists who were at the very first gig – Kelly Jones, Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher – join us as headliners in our 20th year.
“It is an honour to be a patron of this charity, and to have helped raised millions that have paid for Teenage Cancer Trust nurses, support teams and special hospital wards right across the UK.
“I’d like to dedicate this 20th anniversary gig to the incredible people who care for young people with cancer each and every day.”
Tickets to The Who at the Royal Albert Hall go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 9.30am on Friday 21st February.
The concert takes place in the middle of The Who’s UK arena tour in support of their rapturously received latest studio album ‘Who’. They will be accompanied by an orchestra at these shows.
