Liam Gallagher, Ed Sheeran and Yungblud are among artists on the line-up for Teenage Cancer Trust concerts taking place at the Royal Albert Hall next month.

The annual series of charity gigs will also see Madness, The Who and Don Broco take to the stage.

‘An Evening of Comedy’ will also be hosted with Romesh Ranganathan, Rob Beckett and Rosie Jones among featured comedians.

“I’m so excited to be playin’ the Albert Hall for such an incredible and important cause,” Yungblud said.

“It’s gonna be the most mental show the Albert Hall has seen in 150 years, if you think you disagree – come and find out for yourself, I dare ya!”

Shows will take place from March 21-27, the first gigs the charity will have hosted in three years following numerous Covid-19 related disruptions.

The Who frontman and Teenage Cancer Trust patron Roger Daltrey said: “Live music has been hit hard by the pandemic and it has been particularly frustrating for me that we haven’t been able to get artists on stage to raise money for this vitally important cause.

“But we haven’t given up. My wonderful team and I have pulled out all the stops to make this 20th series of shows for Teenage Cancer Trust the best ever. I am so grateful for the loyalty and continued support given to us by the music and comedy industries. The Who will be back on stage this year at the Hall alongside some wonderful talent. After the last two unbelievably difficult years, young people with cancer deserve everything we can do for them.”

Teenage Cancer Trust Chief Executive Katie Collins said the charity was “so grateful to Roger and all the acts coming together” to help ensure that “young people don’t have to face cancer alone”.  She continued: “The past two years have been so tough for young people with cancer and their families.  As well as being amazing gigs these vital fundraising shows going ahead will make the world of difference.

“Without the money raised at events like this – and people like Roger giving up their time to help others – our work would not happen and young people with cancer would go through treatment without the vital specialist care and support we provide.”

Tickets for the Teenage Cancer Trust concert series go on sale Friday (February 25) at 9am GMT here.
