Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Teenage Cancer Trust have announced their four headline artists for this year’s special fundraising gigs, taking place at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall this March.

Kicking off proceedings on Wednesday 25 March 2020 will be the legendary Welsh rockers Stereophonics, who performed at the very first Teenage Cancer Trust gig at the Royal Albert Hall back in 2000. The band have ten top 10 albums to their name, including their October 2019 chart-topping release Kind. Some of their biggest hits include Have A Nice Day, Mr.Writer and Dakota.

The band will be joined by on the night by the one and only Paul Weller, with the former leader of The Jam and The Style Council performing a special acoustic set.

Groove Armada will headline the Royal Albert Hall stage on Thursday 26 March 2020. The London electronic duo first broke through in the mid-nineties and found huge commercial success with their smash hit singles I See You Baby and Superstylin.

The duo won huge plaudits for their 2019 summer shows, their first gigs since 2013.

Friday 27 March 2020 will see Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds take on headline duties. The band, fronted by former Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher have released three studio albums so far, all of which have topped the Official UK Albums Chart.

The group are currently gearing up for the release of their brand new EP Blue Moon Rising, which is set to drop on 6 March 2020.

Saturday 29 March will see the legendary three time Grammy Award-winner Nile Rogers and his band Chic bring proceedings to a close. The musician, a pioneer of disco/funk music, has worked with legendary artists such as Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, David Bowie, Madonna and Daft Punk, and has performed at festivals such as Glastonbury and Coachella.

The first Teenage Cancer Trust shows took place in 2000 when The Who reformed for the event. The band’s lead singer Roger Daltry is a patron of the charity and curates the annual line-up of gigs.

Daltry comments: “Once again we’ve got some incredible artists on the bill for 2020 and I can’t thank them enough for giving up their time for Teenage Cancer Trust. Since the first gig back in 2000 audiences have raised millions to fund Teenage Cancer Trust nurses, support teams and special hospital wards that have helped young people cope with some unimaginably hard times. Without Teenage Cancer Trust these specialist services would simply not be there.”

Each of the shows will support Teenage Cancer Trust, dedicated to getting the correct treatment and personalised support to young people diagnosed with cancer.

Every penny raised goes towards putting a spotlight on the thousands of young people living with cancer across the UK.
