There are fundraisers and then there are Noel Gallagher-curated fundraisers. The High Flying Birds lynchpin has been busy collating some big names for the worthy Teenage Cancer Trust week of concerts, due to be held at the Royal Albert Hall in March 2013 and what a line-up he's helped conjure up.
Headliners include Ryan Adams with Beth Orton on 19th March 2013, Russell Brand with Noel Fielding and others (20th), Primal Scream (21st), Kasabian (22nd), Mr Gallagher himself with Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon plus guests (23rd) and Rizzle Kicks with Labrinth (24th), with other guests and support acts due to be announced in due course.
It doesn't need us to tell you that these concerts will sell out in seconds in most cases, with the real catches being Ryan Adams, Kasabian and Gallagher's evening being something of an unknown quantity when it comes to guests.
We will have tickets on sale from 9.30am on Friday 7th December with prices starting at £25 and rising to as much as £75 (depending on your seat). There are standing options also available.
