The full line-up for the 2016 Teenage Cancer Trust shows has been revealed.
The Vaccines, Simply Red, New Order, and David Gilmour will be performing at the series of concerts held over five nights at the Royal Albert Hall. They join the previously announced Bring Me The Horizon, who perform on 22 April 2016.
Tickets for the newly announced acts go on sale on 19 February.
The Vaccines (20 April) play their first UK show of the year at the annual charity event before heading out on a US tour in support of their most recent album, 2015’s ‘English Graffiti’. The Londoners will be joined by Everything Everything, currently on an arena tour supporting Foals, Pumarosa, and a DJ set from The Horrors’ Tom Furse.
Simply Red (21 April) are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year by touring the globe with their latest album, ‘Big Love’. Mick Hucknall and the band, who have sold over 60 million albums and performed to over 10 million people, are likely to play plenty of hits from their back catalogue, which includes 30 top 40 hits in the UK.
Bring Me The Horizon (22 April) are riding high following their latest album, ‘That’s The Spirit’ hitting the number 2 spot on the UK and US charts. Following their Royal Albert Hall show, the band will be back in London in October when they play The O2 Arena.
New Order (23 April) return to the capital following two sold-out shows at Brixton Academy in November. Their Teenage Cancer Trust gig marks 30 years since the Manchester veterans, currently promoting the album ‘Music Complete’, played the legendary venue.
David Gilmour (24 April) is back at the venue he sold out for five shows in 2015 on his current ‘Rattle That Lock’ global tour. The Pink Floyd legend then returns to the Albert Hall for four further sold out shows in September 2016.
