BBC Introducing Artist Of The Year Tom Grennan has confirmed he will join the stellar Teenage Cancer Trust line up at the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.

Singer-songwriter Grennan has had a phenomenal 12 months. From breakout star at the beginning of the year to a nationwide sold out tour in October, including a date at O2 Academy Brixton, Tom released his top 5 debut album, Lighting Matches, to huge acclaim and performed at festivals all over Europe.

Tom said: “It’s a real honour for me to play a show on behalf of Teenager Cancer Trust and raise money and awareness for so many courageous young people! To tread the boards of the Royal Albert Hall will be a life ambition ticked off for me, and to do it for Teenage Cancer Trust make it that extra special – thank you to Roger Daltrey and the team for giving me this opportunity”

Tom Grennan joins multi award-winning collective Rudimental, one of the most successful bands in British chart history, Take That, alternative legends, Doves, announcing their return after a decade, pop/rock trio The Script and English folk-rockers Levellers for the celebrated week long concert series.

Every penny Teenage Cancer Trust raises goes towards supporting thousands of young people living with cancer across the UK. The services provided treat people as individuals – the young person first and the cancer diagnosis second.

Legendary frontman of The Who, Roger Daltrey CBE has been the driving force behind Teenage Cancer Trust’s Royal Albert Hall concerts since they began in 2000. He commented: “Many people will not be aware that Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity that receives no government funding and is dependent on raising money from the public to provide vital wards and nursing care which are a lifeline for young people with cancer.

“I’m incredibly grateful to all of the artists who’ve given up time in their busy schedules to help young people with cancer get the specialist care they deserve. Looking back, we’ve had so many unforgettable moments at the shows over the years and these moments are amplified by the wonderful young people with cancer I have met.

“I’m consistently overwhelmed by their positivity in the face of a life changing circumstance. They are the reason we strive to make these shows the very best we can and this year will be no different.”

Tickets for Tom Grennan go on sale at 9am on Friday, December 14. All other tickets are on sale now.
