Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall in association with Aldi
28th March 2017
Tickets on sale 9am Friday 17 February
Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall is proud to announce worldwide superstar Ed Sheeran as the latest headliner to join the already stellar line up, which will take place at the legendary Royal Albert Hall on 28th March. Tickets go on sale 9am on Friday 17 February.
“It’s an honour to be asked back by the Teenage Cancer Trust for their fundraising week of live gigs,” says Ed, “It’s such an important cause and one that I’m extremely proud to be a part of. See you on March 28 and let’s raise loads of money for young people with cancer!”
Kicking off music in 2017 with one of the biggest musical comebacks in recent years, over the past month, 25-year-old Sheeran has broken records across the globe with his dual comeback singles “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill”. Holding firm at the top of the UK charts, the singles have accumulated over 900 million combined global streams to date and “Shape Of You” even achieved Spotify’s biggest-ever day streams and shot straight to #1 on the USA’s Billboard Hot 100 upon release!
Sheeran’s career has gone from strength to strength since the release of his debut album ‘+’ (plus) in 2011. The LP, which spent three weeks at #1 in the UK, spawned his breakthrough single “The A Team”, which later went onto win a prestigious Ivor Novello award for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’. Ed’s follow-up album ‘x’ (multiply) was released in 2014 to colossal acclaim and has since gone onto become one of the biggest-selling albums of all time (OCC). Making history around the world, the LP has landed 90 platinum certifications across the globe and seen him win an array of awards including ‘Album of the Year’ at the BRIT Awards (2015). Not to mention his record-breaking stint at Wembley Stadium in July 2015, which saw Ed become the first-ever artist to headline the venue, solo, over three consecutive sold out nights.
Ed’s hotly anticipated third album titled ‘÷’ (divide) will be released on 3rd March and with his Teenage Cancer Trust show at the Royal Albert Hall just weeks later, this show is one not to be missed.
Completing the full line up for this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust week are The Who, Paul Weller, Pet Shop Boys with Johnny Marr, Olly Murs, plus an evening of comedy hosted by Romesh Ranganathan – with special guests Jo Brand, Kevin Bridges, Russell Kane, Mike Wilmott and Tom Allen.
This year’s shows are generously supported by headline sponsors Aldi and associate sponsors American Airlines.
Further incredible support is provided by media partners Absolute Radio, Metro and NME.
