Pet Shop Boys are set to perform with Johnny Marr as part of next year's run of Teenage Cancer Trust shows.
The charitable venture is set to reach its milestone 100th show next year, with the team pulling out all the stops for their latest run.
Taking hold of London's historic Royal Albert Hall venue, Teenage Cancer Trust will pit Pet Shop Boys alongside Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra on April 2nd.
"This will be a very special night for us, performing with Johnny Marr and the Royal Philharmonic," reveal Neil and Chris, "We have often combined electronics with orchestrations on our records and now we’re going to do this in concert. Johnny has played on many of our albums and it will be a real thrill to have him on stage with us. The Teenage Cancer Trust is a wonderful organisation and we are delighted to be able to take part in this annual series of concerts which helps to fund their essential work."
Elsewhere, Paul Weller returns on March 31st, Olly Murs performs on March 27th and Romesh Ranganathan will host an evening of comedy (along with guests Jo Brand and Kevin Bridges) on March 29th.
As if that wasn't enough, The Who will play their 'Tommy' album in full on March 30th and April 1st. The Who singer and Teenage Cancer Trust patron Roger Daltrey comments:
"All of these incredible musical moments are made even more special by the wonderful young people I have met over the past 17 years. They are young people first – cancer patients second. Their positivity and lust for life is such an inspiration to all of us who work with them and with the public’s help we aim to keep Teenage Cancer Trust leading the world in cancer care for these teenagers."
Tickets are set to go on sale shortly.
