"We're absolutely thrilled to be a part of Teenage Cancer Trust and very proud to be kicking off the 10th year of gigs," Depeche Mode's Martin Gore said. "We've never played the Royal Albert Hall before, so we're really looking forward to that too."
The concert series, which was conceived by the Who's Roger Daltrey, has raised nearly £9 million for the UK's first teenage cancer charity, which launched in 1990. Speaking on the success of the series, Daltrey said, "When the Who first got together in 2000 to raise money for this brilliant charity, I had no idea we'd achieve so much from these shows: £8.7million to date and still counting."
"I'm extremely proud of these concerts and the work Teenage Cancer Trust does to help young people fight cancer," Daltrey continued. "I'm forever inspired by the support I have received from the artists and members of the music and comedy industries and thrilled that Depeche Mode are with us for 2010."
Tickets go on sale Friday via Live Nation.
