Bands announced for line-up of shows curated by Roger Daltrey in March

Suede and The Cure are set to play the Royal Albert Hall as part of this year's run of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs. The line-up has been curated by The Who's Roger Daltrey, a patron of the charity, and will be the conclusion of a full week of shows, with The Cure playing Saturday 29 March and Suede, performing their 1994 LP Dog Man Star in full, on Sunday 30. Says the band's Brett Anderson: "It's great being involved with Teenage Cancer Trust again. It’s a fantastic charity and we have a proud history of involvement with them. The gig we did for them at the Royal Albert Hall in 2010 was possibly my favourite ever show in 25 years of playing live."

Elsewhere on the line-up, there's Paolo Nutini, Ed Sheeran and One Republic and a comedy evening featuring Jason Manford, John Bishop, Micky Flanagan and more; tickets go on sale from the Teenage Cancer Trust's website this Friday, January 31, at 9.30 am.
