Teenage Cancer Trust has announced the line-up for its annual fundraising shows at the Royal Albert Hall, with top acts from the world of music and comedy involved.
Those booking London hotels will be able to see John Bishop, Kevin Bridges and Greg Davies on Monday March 21st for an night of laughter.
On the following evening, 70s new wave pioneers Squeeze will be joined on stage by an 18-piece orchestra, while Scots rockers Biffy Clyro will give their first UK performance of 2011 on Wednesday March 23rd.
The week of entertainment at the Royal Albert Hall continues on Thursday March 24th, with The Who's Roger Daltrey performing his band's 1969 rock opera Tommy, while former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher returns to Teenage Cancer Trust's event with his new band Beady Eye on Friday March 25th.
Indie outfit Editors will then play all their top hits to get the weekend underway, before MOBO award-winning rapper Tinie Tempah closes the event on Sunday March 27th.
"These gigs have raised nearly £10 million in ten years and they make a real difference to the lives of thousands of young people with cancer," said Daltrey, who is a Teenage Cancer Trust patron.
