Kasabian and Courteeners are the first acts confirmed to headline Teenage Cancer Trust at London's Royal Albert Hall next March
Kasabian and Courteeners will headline Teenage Cancer Trust shows at London's Royal Albert Hall in 2018.
The 'You're In Love With A Psycho' hitmakers and the indie rock group are the first acts confirmed for the iconic charity shows with Tom Meighan and co performing on March 24, and the 'What Took You So Long?' stars - fronted by Liam Fray - playing the world famous venue on March 23.
It's a special gig for the latter, who are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their seminal album 'St. Jude' by performing the 2008 LP in full.
It follows their homecoming gig at Manchester's Old Trafford to 50,000 fans, following the horrific terrorist attacks at Ariana Grande's Manchester Arena concert in May.
Liam said: "It's a great honour and privilege to perform for such a brilliant charity at such a legendary venue.
"This will be the first and last time we'll ever perform our debut album St. Jude in full in London and we're really pleased to be doing it for a such a great cause."
Kasabian recently completed a 12 date UK Arena tour, in support of chart-topping record 'For Crying Out Loud', and can't wait to entertain the masses next Spring.
Frontman Tom said: "We love playing the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust. It is a show we have come back to throughout our career for the special atmosphere and the amazing cause. Our fans love it and we do too, it will be a highlight of 2018 for us."
The concert series was launched by the charity's Honorary Patron Roger Daltrey CBE, the legendary frontman of The Who, who said: "I'm really pleased to announce the first shows for The Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall next March. This will be the 18th year of these concerts for the charity.
"It's great to be welcoming back Kasabian, they have been fantastic supporters of this charity since they first headlined for us back in 2007."
Tickets go on sale on Friday (15.12.17).
