There’s something about charity that seems to bring out the best in musicians, with major shows like Live Aid having gone down in history for the amazing performances that were put together for a worthy cause.
If you’d like to see some of the world’s top acts strutting their stuff on stage while also helping to raise money for charity then you might want to consider getting tickets for one of the many great gigs that are taking place over the next few months in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The charity itself is one that needs no introduction, and raises vital funds for treatments and research that are helping the world take forward strides in the battle against cancer.
Similarly, many of the artists that are set to perform this year in support of the charity are household names, with the likes of the Cure taking to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall.
On March 29th, Robert Smith will be performing with his legendary band – whose style has been described as everything from New Wave to Post Punk – at the famous venue on London’s South Bank on March 29th.
With massive hits like Friday I’m in Love, Boys Don’t Cry and Love Cats in their repertoire, it’s easy to see why the Cure have become such a global sensation since forming back in 1976.
Alternatively, you may wish to see British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran bring his distinctive blend of indie-pop/rock to the stage, with the ginger-haired superstar also playing at the Royal Albert Hall on March 24th.
Having burst onto the scene in 2011 with his debut album, simply titled +, Sheeran has gone on to receive three Grammy nominations and at the age of 22 is already one of the biggest names in British music.
