Cancer charity gig line-ups named

The line-up for this year's Teenage Cancer Trust concerts has been announced and people will be able to choose between 1990s indie rock, current chart toppers and stand-up comedy.

Example, Pulp, Jessie J, Florence + the Machine, and Jason Manford plus special guests will all appear during five nights of shows at the Royal Albert Hall which will raise money to help young people with cancer.

Now in their 12th year, the concerts have so far raised more than £14 million, all of which has helped the charity build more specialist teenage cancer units in NHS hospitals across the UK, allowing young people to be treated together with others their own age.

In an intimate preview of his first UK arena tour in April, Brit-nominated artist Example will headline on the first night - Friday March 30.

Example's gold-selling album, Playing The Shadows, released last year, went straight to number one as well as achieving two number one singles with Changed The Way You Kiss Me and Stay Awake.

Pulp, who were recently awarded the Teenage Cancer Trust Outstanding Contribution to Music NME Award, will perform some of their greatest hits from the last two decades on Saturday March 31.

After selling one million records in the UK, 2011 Brit Award winner and three-time Brit Award nominee for 2012 Jessie J is set to perform favourites such as Price Tag and Domino from her platinum-selling debut album Who You Are on Sunday April 1.

A change of pace is up next as comedian Jason will take to the stage on Monday April 2 and a number of special guests are to be announced soon.

It is back to music for the grand finale on Tuesday April 3 where singing phenomenon Florence + the Machine will perform hits from one of the best selling albums of 2009 and 2010 - Lungs - including Kiss With A Fist and Dog Days Are Over.

The Who front man and Teenage Cancer Trust's long-standing patron Roger Daltrey said: "Every year my team and I work really hard to make these concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust something special. This year is no exception and the line-up of artists donating their time and talent is incredible, I hope there's something for everyone.
