Bullet For My Valentine To Headline Royal Albert Hall For Teenage Cancer Trust

Teenage Cancer Trust has announced that Welsh metalcore band, Bullet for My Valentine, will headline Saturday night at the charity's renowned Royal Albert Hall shows in March this year. Joining them for this exclusive event are The Blackout and Fightstar. Tickets for the gig on Saturday, March 28, which are expected to sell-out, go on sale today, Friday, February 20, 2009 at 9am.

The Blackout have been regulars on the UK touring circuit playing with huge names such as Linkin Park, Lostprophets and N.E.R.D . They will release their follow up to breakthrough album 'We Are The Dynamite' in May this year.

Led by singer Charlie Simpson, Fightstar has just finished recording their third studio album. Last summer they opened the main stage at legendary rock festival Download, and headlined Guilfest, Summer Slam and Greenbelt Festival. They currently have their brand new single 'Mercury Summer' blasting out across BBC's Radio 1.

Lead singer for Bullet for My Valentine, Matthew Tuck said: "It's a real honor to be headlining for Teenage Cancer Trust this year. Many of our fans are a similar age to the young people that Teenage Cancer Trust supports. So it's really hit home for us that having cancer at such a crucial time in a young person's life must be devastating. We are proud to be involved and hope the concerts raise as much money as possible for their incredible work."

Ticketing information is as follows:
Tuesday 24 March 2009: Antony and the Johnsons with Florence and the Machine and V V Brown

Thursday 26 March 2009: Stereophonics plus special guests
Friday 27 March 2009: Kasabian plus special guests
