Never miss another 'Wilko Johnson' show
This event takes place at Manchester Academy, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The original Dr Feelgood guitarist, Johnson's choppy guitar style and interesting dress sense kept pub-rock rocking the pubs during the 1970s.
Following a stint with Ian Dury and The Blockheads, the Wilko Johnson Band was formed with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Dylan Howe on drums, adding up to one of the most exciting r'n'b bands in the world today.
Wilko Johnson tour dates
Golden Brown, Strange Little Girl, Always The Sun, Peaches, No More Heroes, Nice & Sleazy.... sound familiar? All big hits, all great songs, all written and sung by Hugh Cornwell, the songwriter behind The Stranglers. He is the hitman and he's back with a new album 'Monster' this autumn on Sony Music.
Expect an opening set of prime solo songs, including picks from 'Monster', followed by a storming set of those iconic hits, sung and played by the man himself and his band.
'Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some rock & roll.' You can't miss it. The hitman is back.
