The fifth year of Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at
London's Royal Albert Hall looks set to be the most
entertaining, varied and dynamic ever, with some of
the finest British rock and comedy talent giving up
their time to raise money for this unique charity. VH2
and VH1 Classic are pleased to be lending their
support again.

The five shows in April will include a comedy night
for the second year in a row - this time hosted by
Peter Kay - as well as unmissable shows from Franz
Ferdinand, Keane and the legendary Robert Plant. The
full line-up (with surprises still to be announced) is
as follows:

Monday 4 April - Gibson Guitars Night with Robert
Plant and special guests
Tuesday 5 April - Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs and
Graham Coxon
Wednesday 6 April - AM: Pop Show matinée (acts tbc)PM:
Comedy Night hosted by Peter Kay with many special
Thursday 7 April - Keane and special guests
Friday 8 April - UB40 25th Anniversary Show with
guests including Eric Clapton and Roger Daltrey

Over the last four years, Teenage Cancer Trust's
annual shows at the Albert Hall have become some of
the most enjoyable and spontaneous events in the
musical calendar. It's not uncommon for major artists
to turn up on the night and join in a jam session on
stage and is one of the rare occasions when "special
guests" really could mean absolutely anyone.

Last year's comedy night, billed as 'An Evening With
Alan Partridge', included performances from Ricky
Gervais, Little Britain's Matt Lucas and David
Walliams and Jimmy Carr; whilst Paul Weller, Ronnie
Wood and the Manic's James Dean Bradfield turned up to
support the Stereophonics.

Roger Daltrey CBE who, as a patron of the Teenage
Cancer Trust has been instrumental in raising millions
for the charity, said: "Every year we try to make
these concerts a uniquely amazing experience for the
audiences and for the artists who give up their time
and energy for the Trust. But the true purpose of
these shows is to raise awareness of this very special
charity which makes a real difference to thousands of
teenagers across the UK.

"We all know that without teenagers, without their
energy and their passion for music, we wouldn't have
rock and roll as we know it."

Teenage Cancer Trust was set up to focus on the
particular needs of teenagers and young adults with
cancer, leukaemia, Hodgkin's and related diseases. The
Trust builds special units, developed and decorated to
cater for teenage needs - usually, teenagers with
cancer are either placed in a paediatric ward with
smaller children or in adult wards with elderly

Every day in the UK, six teenagers are diagnosed with
cancer - and the numbers are rising. Teenage Cancer
Trust units offer a comfortable and sociable
environment for teenagers to cope with their
condition. There are currently eight units in Britain
and the Trust hopes to raise enough money over the
next few years to increase that number to 20.
