Roger Daltrey has unveiled the first set of acts on the lineup for his series of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at London's Royal Albert Hall.

The Who frontman is curating the series of concerts this year (2014), which since their launch in 2000 have raised over £17 million for young people with cancer.

The Cure, Suede, Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini and OneRepublic will all headline the series of gigs, which will take place between March 24 and 30.

Alongside musical performances, Daltrey has also announced an evening of comedy featuring Jason Manford, John Bishop, Micky Flanagan, Patrick Kielty, Rob Beckett and Hal Cruttenden.

Last year's curator Noel Gallagher has also helped Daltrey put together this year's line-up.

Daltrey said in a statement: "This is our 14th year at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust and I'm very happy to be back after handing the reins to Noel Gallagher for a year. The money raised is invaluable in helping young people with cancer, and in return for the public's hard earned cash we put on some very special shows.

"Over the years we’ve had so many memorable moments. These include Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn appearing together for the first time, Paul Weller, Kelly Jones and Eddie Vedder flying halfway round the world to sing one song, Matt Bellamy playing the Hall's famous pipe organ and so many more."

The Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall shows are as follows:

Ed Sheeran (March 24)
An evening of comedy with Jason Manford, John Bishop, Micky Flanagan, Patrick Kielty, Rob Beckett and Hal Cruttenden (25)
Paolo Nutini (26)

Suede: 'Dog Man Star' 20th Anniversary (30)
