Kasabian, Anthony and the Johnsons, Stereophonics and Florence and the Machine have been confirmed to play this year’s series of concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Organised by The Who’s Roger Daltrey, the event is now in its eighth year. “We were inspired after meeting some of the teenagers with cancer at our gigs last year,” said Kasabian’s Tom Meighan, “it really made us want to do more for the charity.”

This year Gavin and Stacy’s James Corden and Matthew Horne will also host an evening of comedy at the venue. Past years have seen performances by The Who, Oasis, Paul Weller, Doves and Coldplay.

Tickets go on sale on February 13.
