With nearly all shows sold out for 2013's Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, a seventh and final show has been added for Monday 25th March headlined by longstanding supporter of the charity Paul Weller.

The music and comedy shows are Teenage Cancer Trust's flagship event. The money raised makes a massive difference to the lives of thousands of young people with cancer across the UK through life changing care and support. As the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting teenagers and young adults with cancer, Teenage Cancer Trust relies on the support of the general public to fund a range of services that aim to improve their quality of life and chances of survival.
Also just announced are some special guests for the shows running from Tuesday 19th to Monday 25th March. Kasabian are joined by newcomers Dark Horses, acclaimed band Palma Violets will support Paul Weller, and lastly Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys will open for Noel Gallagher for a very special show featuring performances from special guests including Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon. Beth Orton as previously announced will support Ryan Adams.
On being asked to headline Paul Weller said: 'I'm looking forward to getting on stage for the final night of Teenage Cancer Trust at Royal Albert Hall. I've always supported the charity and have seen first-hand how hard they work and what a huge difference it makes to the kids. When Noel asked me to headline I didn't hesitate."
