Teenage Cancer Trust To Stream Unseen Footage From Ed Sheeran, The Cure, Muse, Pulp And More

Monday, 28 September 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Teenage Cancer Trust is to stream unseen footage featuring the Who, Ed Sheeran and Paul McCartney to fill the fundraising hole left by the cancellation of 2020's gig series.

Between October 8 and 18, Teenage Cancer Trust Unseen will broadcast recordings from the annual London Royal Albert Hall event, which is spearheaded by the Who frontman Roger Daltrey. Other performances include the Cure, Muse, Pulp and Them Crooked Vultures.

The clips will be available to watch online for free, but fans are urged to donate to the Teenage Cancer Trust, which has lost millions of pounds in funds due to the events that were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Stars have also donated items to a raffle to raise extra money. Daltrey said:

"So here we are, six months into one of the strangest times in living memory, where everyone has had some sense of what isolation, even for short periods, can do to the state of our mental health.

"Without the environment and services that Teenage Cancer Trust provide within our NHS, specifically for this age group, isolation throughout their lengthy treatments becomes a strong possibility.

"Through Teenage Cancer Trust, the UK has led the world in recognising the specific issues that this age group with cancer suffer, please donate generously to make sure this vital work continues through these difficult times."

2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the series, with the line up originally set to feature sets by the Who, Paul Weller, Nile Rodgers and Chic, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Mumford and Sons, Stereophonics and Groove Armada.
