For the latest Teenage Cancer Gigs information, please see our news update on 27 March.

Following the decision by the Royal Albert Hall to close, Teenage Cancer Trust’s upcoming week of fundraising shows, which were due to start next week, are postponed. Kate Collins, Chief Executive of Teenage Cancer Trust commented:
 
“Following the Royal Albert Hall’s decision to close, Teenage Cancer Trust’s upcoming week of fundraising shows, Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, are postponed.
 
“We know this will be a huge disappointment to everyone involved in this year’s shows; the artists who were due to perform, their teams, everyone involved in planning the events and - most of all - everyone who had bought a ticket.
 
“However, the health and wellbeing of anyone due to perform, work, volunteer or attend the shows is our overriding priority. 
 
“We understand that many people will have questions about what happens next, especially those who have tickets. Please keep hold of your tickets, as we are currently working with partners and artists on answers to these questions and will come back as soon as we can. 
 
“We are, obviously, very disappointed that we have had to announce this. I’d like to thank everyone who committed their time and support to this year’s shows for their understanding. Together, we will continue to make sure that young people don’t face cancer alone.
