Manchester’s musical phenomenon Courteeners are back for a second headlining time for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 24th March, to play their number one album St. Jude in full. Just a few weeks ago, their lauded debut album, first released in 2008, reached Number 1 for the very first time with its 15th anniversary edition and became the album with the longest time between release and charting at Number 1 in UK chart history, according to the Official Charts Company. Only The Rolling Stones and The Beatles have had a reissued album at Number 1 before. Courteeners have no less than 7 other Top 10 albums and St. Jude includes three Official Top 40 singles (‘Not Nineteen Forever’, ‘No You Didn’t, No You Don’t’ and ‘What Took You So Long?’). Courteeners will be bringing their fervent fan following to the Royal Albert Hall playing the album in full and all the hits.
Courteeners will be supported by special guest Stephen Fretwell.
Courteeners are long-time supporters of Teenage Cancer Trust, having also played our Royal Albert Hall shows in 2018, where they were supported by Blossoms. They’ve also lent their support by donating handwritten lyrics of their song ‘Small Bones’ to our song book. This beautifully crafted 120 page book contains handwritten lyrics from artists including Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Amy Macdonald, The Cure and many more. Alongside these lyrics are 19 new artworks by Pete McKee, created to represent each song featured. You can check it out here!
