DEPECHE Mode are to play a special show at The Royal Albert Hall next year (2010) in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).

The band will play the prestigious London venue on February 17, 2010, on what will mark the opening night of the annual TCT series, which will be celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Martin Gore commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be a part of Teenage Cancer Trust and very proud to be kicking off the 10th year of gigs. We’ve never played the Royal Albert Hall before, so we’re really looking forward to that too.”

The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust, added: “When The Who first got together in 2000 to raise money for this brilliant charity, I had no idea we’d achieve so much from these shows: £8.7million to date and still counting.

“I’m extremely proud of these concerts and the work Teenage Cancer Trust does to help young people fight cancer. I’m forever inspired by the support I have received from the artists and members of the music and comedy industries and thrilled that Depeche Mode are with us for 2010.”

Tickets for the Depeche Mode show go on sale from 9am on Friday, December 18.
