Roger Daltrey has been unveiled as the final headliner for the Teenage Cancer Trust’s historic annual Royal Albert Hall concert series.

The Who frontman will close out the cancer charity’s weeklong fundraising series on Sunday 26 March.

Daltrey will be joined by Friends of Teenage Cancer Trust’s Richard Ashcroft, special guest Joan Armatrading and Far From Saints, who will be performing live for the first time.

Other previously announced headliners include Underworld (Monday 20 March), Wet Leg (Wednesday 22 Mach), Jake Bugg (Thursday 23 March), The Courteeners (Friday 24 March) and Kasabian (25 March).

On Tuesday 21 March, the series will hold an evening of comedy featuring Alan Carr, Harry Hill, Russell Kane, Seann Walsh, Rosie Jones, Slim, Neil Delamere and Fatiha El-Ghorri.

In 2000, The Who kickstarted the concert series, which has raised millions of pounds for young people with cancer.

Last year’s 20th edition featured a once-in-a-lifetime acoustic show from The Who, as well as concerts by Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Yungblud, Madness and Don Broco.
