Noel Gallagher honored with Teenage Cancer Trust Award

Noel Gallagher has received a Teenage Cancer Trust Award, after serving as an ambassador for the charity.

The awards were appointed by the charity to mark their 100th show at the Royal Albert Hall.
They explained that the awards were presented to “every artist who has given up their time over the last 17 years to headline for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, raising many millions for young people with cancer.”

The award’s statuette was designed by artist Jamie Hewlett.

Noel Gallagher said that the show  really have “become such a part of the musical calendar”, and then praised The Who’s Roger Daltrey for booking the acts for the charity event over the years.

“It’s a great thing Roger has done. It doesn’t take much convincing to get me here. I never tire of playing the Albert Hall”, he said.

“I associate the week of gigs with having great nights out. I genuinely look forward to it.”

Noel then commented on the frustration Daltrey faces in “trying to get some of young’uns involved”, before adding that “hopefully Ed Sheeran will be able to turn the tide here.”
