Wilko Johnson To Reunite With Dr Feelgood Members During Farewell Tour

Terminally ill guitarist Wilko Johnson is to reunite with his former Dr Feelgood bandmates on stage for the first time in years when he embarks on his farewell tour this March.

Earlier this month, Wilko's manager, Robert Hoy, took to his official Facebook page to announce the sad news that the guitarist has terminal cancer of the pancreas and has decide against receiving chemotherapy. He also announced that Johnson plans to resume his busy work schedule and he is currently in Japan on tour and will continue work on his final album once he returns. A few days later his manager again took to the Facebook page to announce that Johnson will be embarking on a farewell tour, covering four dates across the UK this March.

It has now been revealed that Wilko will be joined on these dates by his former Dr Feelgood bandmates, with whom he performed with from 1971 to 1977 before he went on to work with Ian Dury and the Blockhead before going starting his own musical project with The Wilko Johnson Band. In his first post, Hoy reassured fans by saying: "Wilko is currently in good spirits, is not yet suffering any physical effects and can expect to enjoy at least another few months of reasonable health and activity."

Wilko will be performing at the following dates in March:

London Koko (March 6)

Bilston Robin 2 (March 7)

Holmfirth Picturedrome (March 8)

Glasgow o2 ABC (March 9)
