Levellers “A Beautiful Night Out” – 31 March
Following their 30th anniversary celebrations this year, the English folk-rockers have lined-up a full electric set at the Royal Albert Hall as part of their own curated show “A Beautiful Night Out”, a one-day version of their award-winning grass roots festival Beautiful Days.
Legendary frontman of The Who, Roger Daltrey CBE has been the driving force behind Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert Hall concerts since they first began in 2000 and is also an honorary patron for the charity.
He commented, “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.”
Next year’s impressive line-up adds to the legacy of memorable performances, which in the past has included the likes of Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn performing together for the first time ever in 2013, Sir Paul McCartney in 2012, plus everyone from Muse to The Cure, Florence + The Machine, Ed Sheeran, Kasabian, Stereophonics, Paul Weller, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Sir Tom Jones and of course, The Who.
