Liam Gallagher is following in the footsteps of his brother Noel after being lined up to play the annual Teenage Cancer Trust shows.

Noel has twice previously played solo shows during the series of gigs, which take place at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Now Liam's new band Beady Eye will play a show on March 25, to raise cash for the charity.

Liam and Noel performed at the annual gig series together on one occasion, when Oasis played in 2002.

This year's shows will also include performances from Biffy Clyro, Tinie Tempah and Editors.

The Who star Roger Daltrey, a patron of the charity and frequent performer at the shows, will play tracks from his band's groundbreaking rock-opera Tommy. The opera was last staged in full in 1989, but the TCT show is expected to include highlights and other hits by the band.

Daltrey said of the shows: "These gigs have raised nearly £10 million in 10 years and they make a real difference to the lives of thousands of young people with cancer.

"We've had both legends and rising stars play for Teenage Cancer Trust over the years and 2011 is no different."

Tickets go on sale on Friday with further details from www.teenagecancertrust.org.
