August 28th 9pm-11pm VIRGIN MEDIA 1

Tune into Concert4Cancer produced by 10Central Group for the music event of the year, and help support cancer patients at every step of their journey.

A host of Irish and UK musicians have come together to announce Concert4Cancer, a televised benefit concert to raise much needed funds for cancer support services in Ireland. Artists such as Ronan Keating, Gary Barlow, Nathan Carter, Brian Kennedy, and Paddy Casey have been announced with the event hosted by Anna Daly all in aid of the Marie Keating Foundation.

Concert4Cancer, proudly supported by the Permanent TSB Community Fund will be aired on Virgin Media One on Friday August 28th from 9pm-11pm, kicking off the broadcaster’s Autumn schedule.

The show will be available on-demand on the Virgin Player for 30 days after, so plenty of time to relive the action or catch-up if you missed out.

The Marie Keating Foundation is proud to
have the support of media partners, Communicorp Media’s ‘Music and Entertainment’ stations, Today FM, 98FM, SPIN 1038 and SPIN Southwest and Irish Music Magazine.

“It is 22 years since I lost my Mam to breast cancer. She was just 51 when she died and our whole family was devastated. There isn’t anyone in Ireland who hasn’t been affected by cancer in some way and the COVID-19 pandemic has really highlighted how crucial it is that cancer patients have access to information they can trust and support they can rely on. The Marie Keating Foundation has been hit hard by the cancellation of so many of their fundraising events but their team has never stopped working to ensure their services are supporting cancer patients and survivors many of whom are continuing to cocoon. I am so grateful to all of these amazing acts for giving so generously of their time and talent for this great cause and to everyone who is able to donate and does so, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
- Singer, patron and co-founder, Ronan Keating
