Back at the helm of Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, Roger Daltrey CBE, today announced this year’s stellar line up for shows taking place from 24 to 30 March 2014.
The first acts to be announced for the 14th year of fundraising concerts include The Cure, Suede, Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, Jason Manford, John Bishop, Micky Flanagan, Rob Beckett, Hal Cruttenden and OneRepublic.
Teenage Cancer Trust patron and The Who front man, Roger Daltrey has been the driving force behind the concerts which have raised over £17million for young people with cancer since they began in 2000. In 2013, music and comedy fans enjoyed seven magnificent SOLD OUT shows.
Guest curated by Noel Gallagher, not only did the charity achieve record-breaking ticket sales, but it was also a year of unique “I was there” moments. 2014 is set to do the same. Noel is back on board and has helped Roger put together a fine week of shows with an ecclectic mix of exceptional artists.
The Cure make a welcome return to the Royal Albert Hall following their acclaimed 2011 show and will play a full three hour show with this year being the 35th anniversary of debut album ‘Three Imaginary Boys’.
Suede will perform their hugely acclaimed second album ‘Dog Man Star’ to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its release and Ed Sheeran will start the run of shows on Monday 24 March.
Also confirmed to headline on Wednesday 26 March is Paolo Nutini who recently announced he will release his new album ‘Caustic Love’ in April with OneRepublic headlining on Thursday 27 March.
Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall wouldn’t be complete without an evening of comedy. This year sees Jason Manford hosting, joined by the superstar talents of John Bishop, Micky Flanagan, Patrick Kielty, Rob Beckett and Hal Cruttenden.
