Liam Gallagher, Ed Sheeran For Teenage Cancer Trust Shows
Liam Gallagher, Ed Sheeran, The Who and Madness are among the acts lined up for this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust shows. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 25 February here.
The iconic concert series has featured the greatest music and comedy for two decades, raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust and driven by Teenage Cancer Trust Honorary Patron and The Who frontman, Roger Daltrey. But in 2020, just as the concerts were about to celebrate 20 years of legendary moments, COVID-19 shut them down, with lockdown starting on the day of the first scheduled show. 2021 went the same way, so it is a more than welcome return for this vital charity event, which will run from 21-27 March.

YUNGBLUD performs on Wednesday 23 March, legends Madness on Thursday 24 March, then the return of The Who, playing a very special acoustic show on Friday 25 March. The iconic Liam Gallagher will play Saturday 26 26th, with global superstar Ed Sheeran on Sunday 27 March to round off an incredible week.
Roger Daltrey CBE, Teenage Cancer Trust Honorary Patron, and mastermind behind the gigs, said: “Live music has been hit hard by the pandemic and it has been particularly frustrating for me that we haven’t been able to get artists on stage to raise money for this vitally important cause.
“But we haven’t given up.
“My wonderful team and I have pulled out all the stops to make this 20th series of shows for Teenage Cancer Trust the best ever. I am so grateful for the loyalty and continued support given to us by the music and comedy industries. The Who will be back on stage this year at the Hall alongside some wonderful talent. After the last two unbelievably difficult years, young people with cancer deserve everything we can do for them.”
