For the first time this year, Roger worked alongside another longstanding supporter of Teenage Cancer Trust, Noel Gallagher, to handpick the incredible line-up that reads like a who's who of the rock world. On asking Noel to curate, Roger Daltrey said: "Who's a lucky boy then! I AM! As I am in the middle of a six- month tour of the US with The Who, I was very concerned that I would not find the time to curate next year's Teenage Cancer Trust shows at the Royal Albert Hall. So it's with great pride and relief that I'm able to thank Noel Gallagher, who has supported me from day one of these concerts, for standing in for me and arranging the artists for the shows next March, and he has pulled together a fantastic line - up that promises to be another great success for the charity. " 12 years of concerts have raised over £15million for Teenage Cancer Trust, making a massive difference to the lives of thousands of young people with cancer across the UK. All money raised has helped the charity to build more specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals across the UK, allowing young people to be treated together with others their own age, in an environment suited to their needs.
