Tom Grennan has been announced as one of the headliners for the annual Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall concert series.
The gigs, which raise much-needed funds for the organisation, will take place from Monday 25 March to Sunday 31 March. Other headliners for the event are Rudimental, Take That, Doves, The Script and Levellers.
“It’s a real honour for me to play a show on behalf of Teenager Cancer Trust and raise money and awareness for so many courageous young people!” Grennan said of his slot. “To tread the boards of the Royal Albert Hall will be a life ambition ticked off for me, and to do it for Teenage Cancer Trust make it that extra special – thank you to Roger Daltrey and the team for giving me this opportunity.”
The Who frontman Roger Daltry has been an honorary patron for the charity for 20 years and is heavily involved with picking the artists that perform at the concert series.
“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,” he said in a press release.
“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.”
