Kasabian Play Glastonbury Warm Up Show

Kasabian have announced that they will play a special Glastonbury fetsival warm-up show in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust charity.

The show will take place on June 21 at the Newport Centre in Wales, one day prior to the festival's kick off on June 22.

Kasabian fully support the work of the Teenage Cancer Trust, and last month also headlined a show at London's Royal Albert Hall, as part of the week-long series of concerts supporting the charity.

Band member Tom Meighan says: “It’s great we can support Teenage Cancer Trust and help them make a difference. After meeting some of the teenagers with cancer at the Albert Hall gig, it really made us want to do more and this show will help the cause, we hope to do more with TCT in the future.”

Roger Daltrey singer with rock veterans The Who and also Patron of Teenage Cancer Trust has said thank you to Kasabian for their support, by saying: "I'd like to thank Kasabian for all the support they give to Teenage Cancer Trust. The night they did for us at the Royal Albert Hall will be remembered as one of the top ten rock gigs of the year. I'm glad to see Rock Music being so well served by the bands of today and look forward to seeing them at Glastonbury".

Money raised from Kasabian's gig in Newport will go towards building work for TCT's first Welsh uint at the University Hospital of Wales.

Tickets for the show cost £25 and went on sale this morning (April 27).

Newport Centre's telephone booking line is: 01633 662666, tickets also available from usual ticket outlets.
