It was announced today that Ed Sheeran and One Republic will play gigs in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust in March.
Paolo Nutini, The Cure and Suede have also confirmed that they will perform at the series of events, which takes place in London’s Royal Albert Hall between the 24th and 30th March this year.
In addition to music performances, there will be a comedy night on Tuesday the 25th March, which will be hosted by Jason Manford and will feature appearances from John Bishop, Micky Flanagan and Patrick Kielty.

Since the charity was launched in the year 2000, it has raised over £17 million pounds to help young people with cancer. The Who’s Roger Daltrey, who is a patron of the charity and curates the annual event, said: “The money raised is invaluable in helping young people with cancer, and in return for the public’s hard earned cash we put on some very special shows [and]over the years we’ve had so many memorable moments.”
The line up is as follows:
24th March – Ed Sheeran
25th March – Comedy Evening hosted by Jason Manford
27th March – One Republic
29th March – The Cure
