Teenage Cancer Trust have announced their new Unseen streamed gig series to raise money for the charity, featuring sets from The Cure, Pulp and more.

Teenage Cancer Trust Unseen will see the charity stream various unseen live performances from a selection of top acts captured at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Performances from The Cure, Pulp, Sir Paul McCartney, Ed Sheeran, Them Crooked Vultures, Rudimental, Paul Weller, Stereophonics, The Who and more will be available to watch from 8-18 October. Access to the gig series is free, but donations are encouraged by the charity and artists.

The gig series is announced after the Teenage Cancer Trust's 20th anniversary show series at Royal Albert Hall was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Teenage Cancert Trust patron Roger 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."

As well as the gig series, Teenage Cancer Trust will host a raffle featuring signed prints from many of the artists involved, and the guitar that Rober Smith played during The Cure's Teenage Cancer Trust Show. Find out more.

Teenage Cancer Trust Unseen will take place from 8-18 October via their YouTube channel. Visit to donate and to find out more.
