Previous Teenage Cancer Trust shows have featured The Who, Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, Keane, Paul Weller, Coldplay, Bryan Adams, Ash, Doves, Robert Plant, UB40, Madness, Eric Clapton and Roger Daltrey, who is a patron of Teenage Cancer Trust and who, with the Trust?s Chairman Dr Adrian Whiteson OBE, came up with the idea of these Albert Hall shows.
Every day in the UK, six teenagers are diagnosed with cancer ? and the numbers are rising. As a result of the funds raised from these shows and other events Roger Daltrey is involved in for TCT, the charity has been able to help a great deal more of these teenagers.
Since the first show in November 2000, TCT has opened Units in Sheffield and Liverpool and a new Unit in London. In 2006 the charity will open a Unit in Glasgow and will begin building work on sites in Cardiff and Cambridge. TCT appointed the world?s first Professor of Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Medicine and in August 2005 welcomed a set of NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) Guidance advocating a desperate need for more specialist age-appropriate cancer wards, like those built by TCT.
Talking about this year?s shows, Roger Daltrey CBE said:
