Over the last decade and change, the annual Concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust have become a London tradition — and this year, they’ll celebrate their 12th anniversary with an impressive run of shows that will kick off with a Paul McCartney performance on March 29.

McCartney will take the stage at the Royal Albert Hall for his show, which leads a string of six benefit concerts concluding on April 3. The series continues the next night with Example, followed by Pulp in March 31, Jessie J on April 1, a comedy evening on April 2 and Florence + the Machine on April 3. Tickets go on sale this Friday (Feb. 24).

Founded in 1997, the Teenage Cancer Trust has raised more than $50 million for building hospital units specifically designed for teenage patients who have been diagnosed with cancer, leukaemia, Hodgkin’s and related diseases. Previous participants in the concert series, which have enjoyed support from Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the Who, include Ronnie Wood, Noel Gallagher, the Specials, Depeche Mode, and Chris Martin of Coldplay.
