THE Teenage Cancer Trust has announced that Welsh metalcore band, Bullet for My Valentine, will headline Saturday night at the charity’s renowned Royal Albert Hall shows in March this year.

Tickets for the gig on Saturday, March 28, are expected to sell-out but are on sale now. Joining them for this exclusive event are The Blackout and Fightstar (pictured).

The Blackout have been regulars on the UK touring circuit playing with huge names such as Linkin Park, Lostprophets and N.E.R.D. They will release their follow up to breakthrough album We Are The Dynamite in May this year.

Led by singer Charlie Simpson, Fightstar have just finished recording their third studio album. Last summer they opened the main stage at legendary rock festival Download, and headlined Guilfest, Summer Slam and Greenbelt Festival. They currently have their brand new single Mercury Summer blasting out across BBC’s Radio 1.

More acts for this year’s gigs are still to be announced – check www.teenagecancertrust.org for details.
