Teenage Cancer Trust patron and The Who frontman, Roger Daltry announced the first of acts in a series of concerts and an evening of comedy at London's Royal Albert Hall, featuring The Cure, Suede, Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, OneRepublic, Jason Manford, John Bishop, Micky Flanagan, Rob Beckett, and Hal Cruttenden.

The14th annual fundraising event will take place from March 24 to 30 and welcome the return of The Cure following their 2011 show. This year marks The Cure's 35th Anniversary of debut album "Three Imaginary Boys," with that the band will perform a special full three hour show.

Every year artists from the rock, pop and comedy world come together to help raise money in cancer care for young people. Past figures included Paul McCartney, Noel Gallagher, Coldplay, Florence and the Machine, Arctic Monkeys, Russell Brand, and Ricky Gervais.

The charity also provides music education and art workshops during the week for teenagers who otherwise might not have the opportunity to work with some of their favorite artists.

Daltry expressed, "Every year Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall raises essential funds to support the charity's work. I am incredibly proud of what we have already achieved and am inspired about what we will accomplish together."

If you can't swing a trip to London you can get involved with the fundraiser and help a young person through the power of music and who knows maybe it will motivate you to plan for a 2015 trip. For more information on the charity and this year's concert which goes on sale Friday Jan. 31, go here.
