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 to help the Trust to continue to build specialist teenage cancer units within 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 is amazing!

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 professionals.
