A New Curator
The 2013 concerts will be the first time that Teenage Cancer Trust patron Roger Daltrey has not hand-picked the line-up. The singer is currently on tour with The Who in America so has invited Noel Gallagher, no stranger to these charity concerts, to choose instead.
“Teenage Cancer Trust do a brilliant job, and I’ve always been more than pleased to lend my support over the years. It’s also now a charity that is very close to the hearts and minds of dozens of acts in the world of music. It’s an honour to have the task of putting together the bills for next year’s series of concerts at The Albert Hall.”
“Who’s a lucky boy then! I AM! As I am in the middle of a 6 month tour of the US with The Who, I was very concerned that I would not find the time to curate next year’s Teenage Cancer Trust shows at the Royal Albert Hall. So it’s with great pride and relief that I’m able to thank Noel Gallagher, who has supported me from day one of these concerts, for standing in for me and arranging the artists for the shows next March, and he has pulled together a fantastic line up that promises to be another great success for the charity.”
The music and comedy shows are Teenage Cancer Trust’s flagship event and this year are held in partnership with The Body Shop. The money raised makes a massive difference to the lives of thousands of young people with cancer across the UK by 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.
