2015 marks the 15th anniversary of the first Teenage Cancer Trust show at the Royal Albert Hall in 2000. Teenage Cancer Trust patron and The Who front man, Roger Daltrey CBE, is the driving force behind the shows. Roger Daltrey, said: "To be back for our fifteenth year at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust is an incredible achievement. This is all made possible by the loyalty of the music and comedy business. Paul, Noel and Kelly were there for the first event and many thereafter. I can't thank them enough for being back with us this year.

I'm always amazed by and appreciative of, the support given to the charity by the new artists each year, who recognise the importance Teenage Cancer Trust’s work. As well as increasing the charity's profile, the money the shows raise is invaluable in helping young people with cancer, and in return for that hard earned cash we always strive to put on some very special shows.”

The event has grown from that first special night into an annual week of concerts which have raised over £20million for young people with cancer and is now an established highlight of the British music calendar. The shows have played a huge role in the growth of the charity, helping to take the total number of specialist Teenage Cancer Trust units across the country to 28 and to fund nearly 50 expert teenage cancer nurses and youth support coordinators.  

From 2000 to 2015, over 200 artists will have performed at the Royal Albert Hall for the charity with nearly 500,000 fans in attendance including over 2,000 young people with cancer.

For every young person with cancer Teenage Cancer Trust supports, there is another they currently cannot. This must change. The charity needs to raise at least £80million in the next five years to help every young person with cancer in the UK have access to the specialist care they provide. The Royal Albert Hall shows will continue to play a pivotal role in achieving this ambitious goal.

This year’s shows are generously supported by associate sponsors American Airlines, Ben Sherman, Derwent London, E.ON, and Tangle Teezer. Further incredible support is provided by media partners Absolute Radio, Metro and NME.
