Wilko Johnson Announces Autumn 2012 UK Tour

Following the release of Wilko Johnson's autobiography, Looking Back At Me, the legendary former guitarist of Dr Feelgood, who's influenced everyone from Joe Strummer and Mick Jones to Steve Albini, is pleased to announce an Autumn 2012 UK Tour with special guest Virgil and the Accelerators.

Tickets are on sale from the 24 hour box office: 0844 478 0898

The tour gets underway at the Bath Komedia on October 11th.

Described by Wilko as a "fractured autobiography," Looking Back At Me, co-written with Zoe Howe, is published this month by Cadiz Music.

After pioneering the Feelgood's distinctive mid 70s, pre-punk British R&B sound (which had a significant impact on the British punk rock music), Wilko went on to play guitar for Ian Dury and the Blockheads. His current touring band features current Blockhead members Norman Watt-Roy (bass guitar), and Dylan Howe (drums).
