Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher wanted to perform two consecutive nights at a London cancer fundraising event this week (begs26MAR07), because he knows the pain of losing a loved one to the disease.
The 39-year-old played a solo benefit gig at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday (26MAR07) for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
But Gallagher wanted to play on more than one night of the multi-concert event.
He says, "It's a great charity and I wanted to be part of the whole thing.
"I've lost three people close to me to cancer so it's something I feel strongly about."
