The Cure

Roger Daltrey has chosen his fave bands The Cure and Suede, and, um… his grandkids’ fave acts Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini and OneRepublic, to each headline a show as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust’s yearly charity gala, which has been a (very beneficial) thing since the year 2000.

Co-curated by TCT patron Daltrey and Noel Gallagher, the line-up will all play live at London’s Royal Albert Hall from 24-30 Mar, a span that includes a night with stand-ups Jason Manford, John Bishop, Micky Flanagan, Patrick Kielty, Rob Beckett and Hall Cruttenden on 25 Mar.

Brett Anderson of Suede, who’ll play their 1994 LP ‘Dog Man Star’ as a finale to all the gigs (on 30 Mar), says: “It’s great being involved with Teenage Cancer Trust again. It’s a fantastic charity and we have a proud history of involvement with them. The gig we did for them at the Royal Albert Hall in 2010 was possibly my favourite ever show in 25 years of playing live”.

Roger Daltrey sums things up thus: “This is our fourteenth year at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust and I’m very happy to be back after handing the reins to Noel Gallagher for a year. The money raised is invaluable in helping young people with cancer, and in return for the public’s hard earned cash we put on some very special shows”.

And: “This year The Cure and Suede return to play for us. How great to have Paolo Nutini, who was a teenager when we first started these shows. Even nearer to the age group that we serve is Ed Sheeran performing songs some of which were written when a teen himself”.
