To be honest, we really don’t need much encouragement to look back on the fabulous night at the Royal Albert Hall in September with the band, Dr John Cooper Clarke and Eight Rounds Rapid, celebrating Wilko’s 70th birthday and 30 years of the Wilko Johnson Band, so here’s a nice review of the evening’s shenanigans courtesy of Rock Society:
We are thrilled to confirm that Wilko will be appearing at the upcoming City Roots festival – associated with Cambridge Folk Festival – to talk about his life in a special live interview at the Cambridge Union Society on 24th February 2018.
