"Every year Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall raises essential funds to support the charity's work. I am incredibly proud of what we have already achieved and am inspired about what we will accomplish together.

Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to be part of many very memorable moments in the shows history. I have many fond memories such as playing a surprise support set for Richard Ashcroft with Paul Weller, Kelly Jones, Liam and Noel Gallagher; or seeing Little Britain’s first live performance and the Kaiser Chiefs opening up for Franz Ferdinand before taking the music world by storm.

Within these memories of unique collaborations and musical firsts are the faces of the incredible young people I have met. Over the years I have met many young people with cancer and like Teenage Cancer Trust, I believe that they shouldn’t have to stop being teenagers just because they have this disease. They have helped me understand that they are young people first – cancer patients second and I am always struck by their enthusiasm, positivism and their lust for life."
