Noel Gallagher’s handpicked musical line up promises to thrill at Royal Albert Hall charity gigs
12-3-2013 — /europawire.eu/ — This March the Teenage Cancer Trust returns to the Royal Albert Hall. The charity, whose long standing relationship with the music sphere continues into 2013, is one that focuses on the support of teenagers and young adults with cancer, leukaemia and Hodgkin’s related diseases by ensuring that specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals are equipped with the right tools to properly give their patients a better quality of life. The Trust provides teenage cancer sufferers with colourful and vibrant environments in which to engage with computers, games consoles and other creative outputs. This year, the Royal Albert Hall plays host to the 2013 Teenage Cancer Trust series: a six night stint of music and star-studded comedy evenings. With tickets selling like hot cakes, LondonTown.com advise that those who wish become part of this monumental musical charity run book both tickets and a hotel in London quickly so not to avoid disappointment.
Patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust, Roger Daltrey, has for the first time invited another musician to handpick the musical roster. Taking a brief break from the Trust’s series at the Royal Albert Hall due to commitments in the USA touring with The Who, Daltrey has invited ex Oasis guitarist and singer Noel Gallagher to organise and announce this year’s line up. A great honour for any musician to shoulder, Noel Gallagher has certainly risen to the occasion.
Kicking off the wonderful six night bonanza on 19March is popular American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams with his special guest Beth Orton. Not to be confused with Bryan, Ryan Adams has sold multiple hits in the USA and UK and proved his longevity by continuing to be a strong crowd pleaser – perfect for the first night at the Royal Albert Hall. The second night in the series promises to be one of great hilarity as funny men Russell Brand and Noel Fielding (perhaps chosen for their similar hair styles) take to the stage to offer gags and laughs aplenty.
Brit pop fans and those who enjoy a bit of good natured contention should look forward to the fourth night which sees former Oasis front man and Trust organiser Gallagher pitted out against Blur’s Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon – the ultimate 90s throwback! Joining them will be Super Furry Animals front man Gruff Rhys. There is no doubt that for many the combination of Primal Scream and Echo & The Bunnymen will be the week’s standout gig (third night) while later performances from stadium rock groups Kasabian and Dark Horses will enthral audiences. Rizzle Kicks, Labrinth and grand Modfather Paul Weller will ensure a brilliant crescendo to the week. Weller is set to headline the seventh and final night with support from indie rockers Palma Violets.
