Teenage Cancer Trust's annual run of fundraising shows were always going to be a tad different this year given the circumstances, so what better way to commemorate 20 years of shows at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall than a retrospective of previous performances. 

Contributing to the never-before-seen run of shows to be streamed are The Cure, Paul McCartney, Pulp, The Who, Them Crooked Vultures, Noel Gallagher, Muse, Paul Weller and more throughout October. 

Spearheading the initiative since 2000, The Who frontman Roger Daltrey said in a statement: “So here we are, six months into one of the strangest times in living memory. Where everyone has had some sense of what isolation, even for short periods, can do to the state of our mental health. The environment and services that Teenage Cancer Trust provide within our NHS, specifically for this age group, isolation throughout their lengthy treatments becomes a strong possibility. Through Teenage Cancer Trust, the UK has led the world in recognising the specific issues that this age group with cancer suffer. Please donate generously to make sure this vital work continues through these difficult times.”

Each show will air for free, from 8th to 18th of October, but viewers are encouraged to donate to the cause if possible. Check out the trailer below:
