Roger Daltrey Steps Down as Teenage Cancer Trust Royal Albert Hall Curator

by Patria

Renowned musician Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who, has announced his decision to step down from his role as curator for the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall. Having spearheaded the annual benefit concerts for the support charity since 2000, the 79-year-old singer has been instrumental in securing performances from top artists at the iconic venue in the name of charity. However, Daltrey has opted to pass the baton, revealing that starting from 2025, a lineup of guest curators will continue to steer the shows into the future.

Daltrey expressed, “The £32 million raised from these concerts has been the foundation for the 28 specialized units within the NHS, as well as specialist nurses and youth workers to be there for a young person when cancer has turned their world upside down.”

In recognition of his extensive service to the trust, Roger Daltrey will be the focal point of three nights of celebrations during the 2024 concert series. Returning on Monday, March 18, and Wednesday, March 20, alongside rock legends Squeeze, accompanied by an orchestra, the event will harken back to its inception over two decades ago.

Concluding the week of performances on Sunday, March 24, Daltrey will join forces with Kelly Jones, Robert Plant with Saving Grace, Pete Townshend, Eddie Vedder, and Paul Weller for ‘Ovation’—a celebration marking 24 years of gigs for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Adding to the week’s festivities, former Oasis star Noel Gallagher, along with his High Flying Birds band, will take the stage, joined by Young Fathers and Chemical Brothers in the lead-up to the finale. The lineup for the famous Night of Comedy is yet to be announced.

Noel Gallagher expressed his support, stating, “Teenage Cancer Trust continues to make a real difference to teenagers in what undoubtedly must be the most challenging years of their lives. Having performed at the very first event back in 2000, it is a charity very close to my heart. 24 years and counting is a triumph in itself. NGHFB will be there en masse. Together we will make the night unique. I’d buy a ticket if I were you.”

Tickets for these exceptional events go on sale at 9 am on Friday, January 12.
