Kelly Jones joins Paul Weller’s night
Limited number of extra tickets released
Kelly Jones joins the line-up on Friday 31st March for a very special guest support slot. This is a unique opportunity to see the two British music legends take the stage on the same night.
The Stereophonics frontman was determined to be involved in this historic week for Teenage Cancer Trust at The Royal Albert Hall, when the 100th show will be played by The Who.
The Paul Weller show is sold out but Teenage Cancer Trust will be releasing a very limited number of choir seats to the left and right of the stage at 9am on Friday 3rd March to give as many fans as possible a chance to experience these unique gigs.
Kelly was involved in the very first shows in 2000 (joining The Who for ‘Substitute’) and has been a valued supporter ever since, bringing his band to headline in 2004, 2009 and 2015, as well as joining Roger Daltrey and Paul Weller for a special evening in 2012.
Kelly Jones is one of Britain’s best loved rock stars, bursting onto the scene as the frontman of Stereophonics from the village of Cwmaman, Wales in the early 1990s to conquer the world. Classics like ‘Local Boy In The Photograph’, ‘The Bartender and the Thief’, ‘Just Looking’, ‘Maybe Tomorrow’ and ‘Dakota’ have brought them 11 UK Top Ten songs and 6 Number 1 Albums.
Since 2000, over 225 bands and artists have played Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, raising over £24 million. These incredible shows have played a vital role in helping the charity to provide 28 specialist cancer units and over 60 nursing and support staff in NHS hospitals across the UK, making an incredible difference to young people diagnosed with cancer around the country.
And this year, the 100th show will be played, adding to an extraordinary legacy that has seen unique, once in a lifetime performances like Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn sharing a stage in 2013, Sir Paul McCartney in 2012, plus everyone from Muse to The Cure, Tinie Tempah, Florence + The Machine, Ed Sheeran, Kasabian, Stereophonics, Paul Weller, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Sir Tom Jones and many more. And, of course, some of the greatest concerts of the past 20 years from The Who.
This year’s shows are generously supported by headline sponsors Aldi and associate sponsors American Airlines.
Further incredible support is provided by media partners Absolute Radio, Metro and NME.
