Underworld Launch Teenage Cancer Trust Concert Series

Showcasing their full sensory experience at the Royal Albert Hall, English electronic legends Underworld opened the annual Teenage Cancer Trust in front of a sold our audience.

Drawing their fans in to a night of nostalgic euphoria, rave pioneers Karl Hyde and Rick Smith stepped onto the stage when the former musician exclaimed “Welcome to our house” as their iconic ‘Two Months Off’ kicked in. Standing and dancing throughout the evening, the audience was treated to ‘Jumbo’ and ‘Push Upstairs’ before the original EDM duo finished with ‘Born Slippy (Nuxx)’, the Underworld B-side single featured in Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting movie.

“It’s such an honour and a delight and it’s just really f***ing great to be performing for the wonderful Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall.” – Rick Smith and Karl Hyde, Underworld

On Sunday (3.26) the shows’ founder and The Who frontman Roger Daltrey will present A Special Gala Evening of Music with Friends of Teenage Cancer Trust including Richard Ashcroft, the first live performance from Far From Saints, Lola Lennox, plus very special guest Joan Armatrading.

Helped to fund specialist nurses, hospital units and support services across England that assist young people through some unimaginably hard times, since 2000 the Teenage Cancer Trust concerts at the Royal Albert Hall have raised over $39,000,000.
