Tom said: ‘Almost a year ago, my world was turned upside down by my diagnosis.
‘I was absolutely shocked to discover how low the percentage of the annual research budget for cancer that is devoted to brain tumour research.
‘I want to use my voice and platform to do something about it and help in any small way I can.
‘Music is my life so a concert to raise much needed funds seemed like the perfect idea. We have some amazing artists signed up and I’m really excited, it’s gonna be an amazing night.’
