Ed Sheeran - Ed Sheeran vows to play TCT gig in 2014

Ed Sheeran will ''100 per cent'' perform for Teenage Cancer Trust if he is asked again.

The 'Drunk' hitmaker disappointed Noel Gallagher - who curated this year's run of shows for the charity - by agreeing to take part, only to then pull out, and he insists it was only a scheduling clash with his sold-out Australian gigs which stopped him and he'd have cancelled anything else to be a part of the fund-raisers.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''I'd love to do it next year.''

He added on Twitter: ''I actually told him I would do the gig whenever he wanted, but the week they were planned I was in Australia with gigs already booked and sold out.

''Had it been any other time I would have made it happen but I found this out after I'd said yes.

''I think it would be worse saying no instantly without knowing, to be honest, and I said any other time he wants to do a show and I'm not on tour, I will 100 per cent do it.''

Noel - who closed the shows at London's Royal Albert Hall on Saturday (23.03.13) - recently admitted next year would have the ''greatest line-up since Woodstock'' if all the acts who initially said they would perform with him this year took part.

He said: ''I'd talk to Ed Sheeran and Mumford & Sons... and I got let down a lot. Everybody says yes to your face.

''And then the agent will call and say, 'Ah, they're going to be in Australia at the time.' Really? Well, they never said that to me.

''But if the people that blew me off but said they'll do it next year actually do, it might be the greatest event since Woodstock.''
