Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall announce their headline acts for 2019 including the return of Doves and English folk-rockers Levellers.
Money raised by these shows supports Teenage Cancer Trust, the only charity dedicated to making sure young people diagnosed with cancer get the expert treatment and personalised support they need.
After calling time on their hiatus, Doves embraced the invitation of Roger Daltrey CBE to take the stage for Teenage Cancer Trust. The legendary three-piece band from Manchester, announce their return in 2019, taking to the stage for the very first time in nine years. (Watch this space for more announcements). They will play Royal Albert Hall on Friday 29 March.
Levellers will be playing a full electric set at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 31 March as part of their own curated show “A Beautiful Night Out”, a one-day version of their award-winning grass roots festival Beautiful Days.
Roger said: “Many people will not be aware that Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity that receives no government funding and is dependent on raising money from the public to provide vital wards and nursing care which are a lifeline for young people with cancer. “I’m incredibly grateful to all of the artists who’ve given up time in their busy schedules to help young people with cancer get the specialist care they deserve. Looking back, we’ve had so many unforgettable moments at the shows over the years and these moments are amplified by the wonderful young people with cancer I have met. I’m consistently overwhelmed by their positivity in the face of a life changing circumstance. They are the reason we strive to make these shows the very best we can and this year will be no different.”
