Kasabian to perform at the Royal Albert Hall

Rockers Kasabian will be taking to the stage this month at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

Taking place on March 22nd, the gig forms part of the series of concerts for the cause at the Royal Albert Hall and could be a great excuse to book luxury hotels in London for fans of the band.

Curated by High Flying Birds frontman and former Oasis icon Noel Gallagher, the concerts are helping to raise funds for the charity, which works with young people across the country suffering from cancer.

Kasabian are one of the most popular rock bands of recent years, with their albums Kasabian (2004), Empire (2006), West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum (2009) and Velociraptor! (2011) all doing well in the UK charts and helping to build a considerable following for the band.

Lead singer Tom Meighan said: “It’s great we can continue to support Teenage Cancer Trust and help them make a difference. We were inspired after meeting some of the teenagers with cancer at our gigs last year and it really made us want to do more for the charity.”

Kasabian will be supported on the night by relative newcomers Dark Horses, with the band’s recent release Radio voted Single of 2012 at the recent Artrocker Awards in the capital.

Indeed, March is a relatively hectic month for the band, with the group playing a number of free gigs across the UK in the coming weeks, taking in Reading, London, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Bristol, Portsmouth and Bournemouth all before the month is out.

Meanwhile, a range of other concerts have been organised in aid of the trust this month, including performances by Rizzle Kicks and Labrinth on March 24th, as well as a special one-off comedy evening hosted by Russell Brand and Noel Fielding that will take place on the 20th.
