Having discussed, as promised, the numerous complaints received about the sound at the Lighthouse Poole with our crew and promoter, we’d like to share the following clarification: the sound problems experienced at the Lighthouse were largely due to issues with the house PA, however matters were made worse when a number of dancing audience-members fell over the FOH position, ripping out the cable that links the desk to the stage. Our sound engineer had to reconnect and set up the desk again for it to work. There were other associated issues that ultimately made the situation impossible for our sound crew, who worked very hard to try to recover the situation and in whom we continue to have full confidence.
The upcoming July 2022 shows at Cambridge Junction and Sheffield’s Leadmill venue have now been moved to 24th/25th March 2023 respectively. Special guest: Wreckless Eric!
(Just to reassure, the rescheduling of these shows have nothing to do with health reasons.)

Wilko and the boys are part of the big Planet Rock ‘Rocktober’ jamboree taking place in – you guessed it – October (aka Rocktober).

For those awaiting news on the rescheduled Lighthouse Poole gig who haven’t otherwise heard from the venue, it has now been confirmed for September 16th: https://www.lighthousepoole.co.uk/whats-on/2020/wilko-johnsonspecial-guest-john-otway/
Wilko and the boys will be joining artists including Nine Below Zero for an event celebrating an exhibition of The Jam, curated by Nicky Weller, titled ‘This Is The Modern World’.
The event takes place in the Mod heartland of Brighton – more information can be found here.
Those of you who were present at the Worthing show on 22nd April will have witnessed Wilko having a bit of a turn – we’re happy to inform you that Wilko is ok, and much improved.
