17 years after the very first show in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, the charity marked their 100th gig at the venue on 30 March 2017, with a special concert from Roger Daltrey and The Who, plus surprise support act Noel Gallagher!

The Teenage Cancer Gigs are the charity’s flagship annual fundraiser raising millions to provide specialist care for young people with cancer.

The Who, who played the very first show for the charity back in 2000, returned to the Hall stage to premiere a special presentation of rock opera ‘Tommy’ – their very first performance of the show together since 1989.

The show was supported by music icon and long-term supporter of Teenage Cancer Gigs, Noel Gallagher. This performance was the the tenth time the former Oasis frontman has taken to the stage for Teenage Cancer Trust, including the very first show in 2000.

Earlier in the day, teenagers from Teenage Cancer Trust funded cancer units around the UK were invited to the Hall for a music workshop. Assisted by members of the Hall’s own Albert’s Band, they spent the afternoon writing music together, before performing in front of members of staff.
