Kasabian and The Courteeners are set to play special Teenage Cancer Trust shows next year.
The charity shows are a fixture on London's gig calendar, matching unique performances with a truly remarkable cause.
Turning 18 next year, the Teenage Cancer Trust have confirmed new shows at London's Royal Albert Hall from Kasabian and The Courteeners.
The Courteeners will re-visit their debut album 'St Jude' on March 23rd, before Kasabian hit the historic venue on March 24th.
Kasabian singer Tom Meighan says, “We love playing the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust. It is a show we have come back to throughout our career for the special atmosphere and the amazing cause. Our fans love it and we do too, it will be a highlight of 2018 for us.”
Teenage Cancer Trust patron - and The Who frontman - Roger Daltrey was overjoyed at the announcement. He commented:
“I’m really pleased to announce the first shows for The Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall next March. This will be the 18th year of these concerts for the charity.“
“Courteeners will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of their seminal album 'St Jude' by performing the album in full. They are doing one show in Manchester and we can't thank them enough for choosing Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall as their London show. It's going to be a very special night.”
“It's great to be welcoming back Kasabian, they have been fantastic supporters of this charity since they first headlined for us back in 2007.”
Tickets for both shows go on sale this Friday (December 15th) at 9am.
Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall runs between March 19th - 25th.
