The 12th Anniversary of the Concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust will get under way on March 29th with the latest addition to its lineup, Paul McCartney.
Macca will play the first of six shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which will be followed by concerts from Florence and the Machine, Pulp, Jessie J, Example, and comedian Jason Manford.
Sir Paul, who just released Kisses on the Bottom and was awarded a GRAMMY for Best Historical Album, will be the latest classic rocker to perform for the Concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust. Past participants include Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the Who, Ronnie Wood, and Depeche Mode.
Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity that focuses its resources towards the aid of teenagers and young adults with cancer, leukaemia, Hodgkin’s, and related diseases by providing specialist teenage units in National Health Service hospitals.
Since the charity’s inception in 1997, Teenage Cancer Trust has raised $50 million.
