Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paul Weller, and Stereophonics are among the leading acts for this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust shows it has been announced.
The long-running annual series is a fundraiser that aims to bring some of the best musical talents to the Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. A very special set of artists is earmarked for the charity’s 30th anniversary celebration.
Stereophonics and Paul Weller are set to begin the event with a co-headline slot on March 25th with the dance act Groove Armada performing the following evening on March 26th.
The stage will then be set to welcome Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds on March 27th. The Oasis singer has performed at the event numerous times as well as creating the bill in 2013. The house will then almost certainly be brought down when Nile Rodgers and CHIC arrive for the closing party on March 29th.
Tickets are on sale here on Friday. More shows and guests will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Who’s Roger Daltrey is a Teenage Cancer Trust Patron and he said: “Once again we’ve got some incredible artists on the bill for 2020 and I can’t thank them enough for giving up their time for Teenage Cancer Trust.”
“Since the first gig back in 2000, audiences have raised millions to fund Teenage Cancer Trust nurses, support teams and special hospital wards that have helped young people cope with some unimaginably hard times.”
“Without Teenage Cancer Trust these specialist services would simply not be there. I’ve seen first-hand the difference this support makes to so many young people with cancer over the years and I’m beyond proud to be a part of the Teenage Cancer Trust team.”
“Everyone who’s helped us achieve this is a hero in my book, and I’d like to thank everyone who has got us this far.”
