Wilko Johnson- UK headline tour

Wilko Johnson WEBSITE


Fresh from his career defining ‘Oil City Confidential’ film and thrilling tour with the Stranglers, Wilko Johnson has announced his own headline tour.
The founding member of Dr. Feelgood, whose frantic, chopping, slashing Telecaster playing has become one of the most iconic sights in UK rock n roll has influenced everyone from Joe Strummer, Mick Jones to Steve Albini.
The nationwide UK tour will run though September and October.

The tour kicks off at the Edinburgh Caves on Thursday 15th September. Tickets go on sale Friday 15th April at 9am GMT. Tickets can be ordered by calling the 24 Hour Box Office: 0871 230 1101 or can be booked online from www.seetickets.com. Johnson will be accompanied on the upcoming UK tour by Norman Watt-Roy (bass guitar) and Dylan Howe (drums).

In 1971, Wilko first made his name when he formed Dr. Feelgood; a British pub rock band from Canvey Island, Essex. Known for their high energy live performances, their first two studio albums, Down by the Jetty (1974) and Malpractice (1975), proved immensely popular. Their 1976 breakthrough live album, Stupidity reached No.1 in the official UK album chart. By the time Dr. Feelgood released their fourth album, Sneakin’ Suspicion (1977), Johnson left the group to pursue a solo career. By 1980, Johnson joined Ian Dury and the Blockheads.

In 2009 Johnson featured in Julien Temple’s Oil City Confidential; a full-length feature film documentary about Dr. Feelgood. Johnson will soon be seen starring opposite Sean Bean as Royal Executioner Ser Illyn Payne in HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones, shown on Sky Atlantic television.
