NOEL Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have been confirmed as the first artist to headline the 2015 line-up of the Teenage Cancer Trust’s annual Royal Albert Hall gigs.

The band will follow the release of their new album, Chasing Yesterday, on Sour Mash Records on March 2, 2015, with the show on Saturday, March 28, 2015.

Commenting on the announcement, Noel Gallagher said: “Who’d have thought that after 15 years we’d be gearing up for another stint at the greatest venue in the world for Teenage Cancer Trust.

“Thanks to everyone, the bands, artists, and the comedians for all your continued support, and maximum respect to you the people for making it all possible. See you on Saturday, March 28!”

Teenage Cancer Trust patron and The Who frontman, Roger Daltrey CBE, has been the driving force behind the concerts which have raised over £20 million for young people with cancer since they began in 2000.

In March 2014, fans enjoyed seven magnificent SOLD OUT shows which achieved record-breaking ticket sales to support Teenage Cancer Trust’s specialist services as well as producing unique “I was there” moments.

Roger said: “He was with us at our first show for Teenage Cancer Trust in 2000 and is now returning to the Royal Albert Hall for the seventh time. Noel has put his heart and soul into these shows over the years, curating them in 2013 and even releasing a live album for Teenage Cancer Trust.

“He’s not only one of the best artists in the world but gives himself unconditionally. Noel has been a pivotal supporter to our mission and I’m incredibly proud both of him and the work he’s done.”

Tickets for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on Saturday 28 March go onsale Tuesday, December 16 at 10am.
