Influential rock hero Wilko Johnson has announced his first ever headline show at the Royal Albert Hall on 26 September 2017.
The show comes just four years after Wilko overcame pancreatic cancer, which was diagnosed as terminal before life-saving surgery rendered him free from the disease.
In the years following his miraculous recovery, Johnson made two appearances at the Hall in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust – first alongside Who frontman and charity patron Roger Daltrey ahead of Paolo Nutini’s 2014 show, and then with his band in support of The Who’s headline show in 2015.
This Wilko Johnson Band show, celebrates Johnson’s 70th birthday and his band’s 30th anniversary, as well as the release of Keep It To Myself – The Best of Wilko Johnson.
The band consists of Wilko himself, alongside The Blockheads’ Norman Watt-Roy and Dylan Howe.
