Following a hilarious evening of comedy hosted by John Bishop, day 2 of our #TeeageCancerGigs saw The Vaccines and Everything Everything rocking the Royal Albert Hall stage, getting the crowd up on their feet and singing along.
Earlier in the day the 2 bands had taken part in the music workshops run for the groups of young people from our units who have travelled to London for the shows. The Vaccines got stuck in to reading the lyrics to 'Here We Go' - the song the young people had written in the style of the band just that morning before watching them perform.
"I can't believe you've learnt that in just an hour" said Vaccines guitarist Freddie Cowan.

During their later meet and greet backstage the young people quizzed the 8 musicians on what they were like as teenagers and what advice they would give to their younger selves.
It was then time for some music. Pumarosa wowed the audience performing songs including Priestess and Lionface, while Tom Furse from The Horrors kept everyone grooving with his DJ set. There was huge excitement when Everything Everything began, playing tracks including Kemosabe, Cough Cough and Regret.
