David Gilmour is among the artists performing at this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust shows.
New Order will also headline a night.
Spread across six nights in April, the Teenage Cancer Trust shows will take place at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
This year’s line-up is completed by the Vaccines, Everything Everything, Bring Me The Horizon, Simply Red and John Bishop.
Speaking about this year’s line-up, the trust’s patron Roger Daltrey said, “It’s hard to believe this is our 16th year at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust, and I’m very happy to be announcing such a varied line up. The money raised is invaluable to this charity, which receives no government funding in England, to help young people with cancer in the NHS. In return for the public’s hard earned cash, we aim to put on some very special shows.
“This year David Gilmour returns to the Royal Albert Hall to play for us. His show is so spectacular that at one point even the band has to wear sunglasses on stage, so it is certainly one not to be missed. I’m also very proud to welcome New Order to the Teenage Cancer Trust fold and this will be their first time at the Royal Albert Hall since 1986. Bring Me The Horizon come to us fresh from reaching #2 in both the UK and US album charts with their latest ‘That’s The Spirit’, they’re without doubt one of the most exciting ‘heavy’ bands around and we’re very happy they accepted our invite, the same with The Vaccines who are one of the best British bands out there. Simply Red are simply one of the most successful British acts of the past 30 years with over 60 million album sold and I know that Mick and co will put on a truly fantastic show that will be ideally suited to the Royal Albert Hall.”
