THE BRAINCHILD OF THE WHO'S ROGER DALTREY, CBE, patron of Teenage
Cancer Trust, the TCT gigs have been held for the last eight years to raise
awareness and funds for this unique charity. Roger has persuaded the best of
British talent across rock, pop and comedy to give up their time to benefit
the Trust and the result is a magnificent and entertaining show for a very worthwhile
cause. And now you can buy TCT Concerts For Teenage Cancer Trust At The Royal
Albert Hall on DVD to enjoy at home.
All profits from the sale of the DVD will go to Teenage Cancer Trust to be used

the NHS for young people with cancer.
Act after act of British talent including The Who, pounding out crazy
rock numbers and thoroughly enjoying themselves give it all they've got.
Accomplished artistes such as the Who, Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, The Cure,
Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Razorlight and Judas Priest feature in
this DVD of previously unseen footage from the Teenage Cancer Trust Benefit
Show, giving some really great performances. There is a great cover of Summertime
Blues written by Eddie Cochrane and Jerry Capehart by Roger
Daltrey and Razorlight. This DVD is so atmospheric that you can imagine just
how exciting it was to have actually been there the audience participation
Newer and younger artistes bravely stand up to be counted with the giants of
the music industry, and the show is definitely up there with the 'Best of the
Best'. The Who prove they've still got what it takes hard to believe,
as they strut their stuff, that they are not the same generation as the more
youthful bands. Looking good guys!
This terrific DVD is a piece of music history that you will not only be pleased
to own and to watch, but you'll be helping a worthwhile cause into the bargain.
The DVD from the now-legendary Teenage Cancer
Trust Benefit Shows at the Royal Albert Hall is available now (released Monday
14 April, 2008). The concerts are produced by Harvey Goldsmith, CBE, Roger Daltrey,
CBE, and Des Murphy.

TEENAGE CANCER TRUST
Every day in the UK, six teenagers are diagnosed with cancer over 2,000
diagnoses per year and because of a lack of facilities, they may find
themselves in inappropriate surroundings that cater for children or for the
elderly. TCT funds specialist teenage units to focus on the needs of young people
with cancer in NHS hospitals, providing an environment where teenagers can get
on with being teenagers. It is a positive environment, expected to improve survival
rates and ensure a better future for patients and their families.
As well as state-of-the-art facilities to keep patients occupied during their
long stays in hospital, the units provide an environment where teenagers can
meet others in a similar situation. These units allow patients to build friendships
and to cope with their disease without being patronised or ignored. All the
units are staffed with professionals able to fully understand and manage the
needs of the patients.
In 2008, the charity will be opening five new TCT units in Leeds, Newcastle,
Cardiff, Glasgow and Southampton to add to the units already operating
in London, Manchester, Sheffield and Liverpool. Building work will start this
year on a further two, in Birmingham and Cambridge.
More are needed to ensure every single young person with cancer has access to
a unit and over the past seven years the Albert Hall shows have led directly
to the development of three major Teenage Cancer Trust units across the country
as well as raising awareness for this neglected group of young people.
The Teenage Cancer Trust hope to ensure that every teenager with cancer is catered
for with at least 22 units.
TCT also funds a nationwide Education team to teach young people in schools,
colleges and universities about cancer, prevention and healthy living. It also
provides a conference for young people with cancer along with training for medical
