Farewell Tour: Wilko Johnson + Viv Albertine (The Slits)
Wilko Johnson, guitarist and founding member of Dr. Feelgood, will perform a series of farewell concerts in the UK during February and March 2013.
The news follows the official statement on Wilko's Facebook page that he has been diagnosed with terminal cancer of the pancreas and has chosen not to undergo chemotherapy.
Says Wilko's manager, Robert Hoy: "The UK dates represent an opportunity for Wilko to express his sincere thanks to his fans for all the support he has had over his long career."
This event takes place at KOKO, 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.
