On this day was the closing night of the 2024 Teenager Cancer Trust concert series. The Who’s frontman Roger Daltrey has curated the charity gigs for 24 years and it was the last year he was up to the task. He will still be an Honorary Patron of the charity, despite stepping down as curator of its annual concert series.

To mark the occasion, Paul McCartney sent a video message thanking him for his work with the non-profit organisation:

Paul here, your friend of a million years. Thank you for your 24 years of incredible service to Teenage Cancer. You’ve made so many kids happy and healthier and all of us connected with it. I want to thank you, so much. So what we say is… [sings] thank you Roger, thank you so, you’re a hero and you better know… [end singing] That’s one of the best songs I’ve ever written.

Nile Rodgers also contributed a video message.

Paul McCartney participated in Teenager Cancer Trust in 2012.

From, January 8, 2024:

The Who’s Roger Daltrey has announced he will step down as curator of the annual Teenage Cancer Trust gigs, after this year’s set of concerts.

The shows have been running at the Royal Albert Hall since 2000, raising more than £32m from ticket sales.

Daltrey will kick off his final year by staging two orchestral sets with The Who. Noel Gallagher, Young Fathers and The Chemical Brothers will also play.

The series will end with a celebration of the series of shows.

Titled Ovation, the concert will feature Daltrey himself, accompanied by artists who helped establish the gigs as a fixture of the music calendar.

The line-up will include Robert Plant, Paul Weller, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, the Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones and Daltrey’s long-time musical foil, Pete Townshend.

From 2025, the concerts will be overseen by a series of guest curators. Daltrey will continue as a Teenage Cancer Trust Honorary Patron.

In a statement, the rock star said: “The £32m raised from these concerts has been the foundation for the 28 specialised units within the NHS, as well as specialist nurses and youth workers to be there for a young person when cancer has turned their world upside down.”
