Wilko Johnson Band
Wilko Johnson will play four farewell shows in March.
The former Dr Feelgood guitarist last week announced he’s suffering from terminal cancer of the pancreas and has chosen not to undergo chemotherapy.
Manager Robert Hoy says: “The four dates represent and opportunity for Wilko to express his sincere thanks for his fans for all the support he has had over his long career.”
Johnson is currently in Japan. On his return he plans to record a final album and he’ll release a live DVD recorded last year.
His band, featuring Blockheads members Norman Watt-Roy and Dylan Howe, will play the following shows along with special guests:
March 6: London Koko
March 7: Bilston Robin 2
March 8: Holmfirth Picturedrome
March 9: Glasgow O2 ABC
