"Wilko Johnson Band - The 30th Anniversary
Tuesday 26th Sepember 2017
 Royal Albert Hall, London
 + Special Guest

Are you ready for this very special show?!

2017 is certainly a special year for Wilko Johnson: not only does it mark the 30th anniversary of the Wilko Johnson Band, but this year sees the guitarist celebrating his 70th birthday. Given the events of recent years, this celebration at the Royal Albert Hall is all the more meaningful: here is the death-defying Wilko Johnson leading his own party with partners in crime Norman Watt-Roy (bass), Dylan Howe (drums), family, friends and special guests."

Tickets (30.55 - 219 [Should you want a posh seat and meal!]):

I wonder if the special guests will include John Otway? Wilko was his when he played there. Might have Roger Daltry too I suppose. It would be nice to see the surviving original Feelgoods there too.

70 Not Out: Wilko Johnson in session and in conversation with Paul Jones -

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08x1qmh

Wilko Johnson celebrates his 70th birthday in session at Maida Vale with bassist Norman Watt Roy and drummer Dylan Howe. He also talks to Paul Jones about reaching the milestone of 70 years this coming Wednesday, a birthday he thought he would never live to see after being diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in 2012. Thankfully, after live saving surgery and a second diagnosis in 2013 Wilko was declared cancer free. Since then he has gone on to appear on TV's Game Of Thrones, record the best selling album Going Back Home with singer Roger Daltrey and make a successful return to performing, an achievement that will be crowned by his forthcoming 70th birthday celebration concert at the Royal Albert Hall in September. As Wilko himself says 'Man, there's nothing like being told you're dying to make you feel alive.' The session tracks include Keep On Loving You, Dr Dupree and Going Back Home.

Wilko starts at 24.10 and there's a cracking version of "Going Back Home" with Paul Jones on harmonica to close the show at 55.25.

I just got a "Buy the album, go to a free gig/signing" with Wilko and band at Rough Trade in Nottingham. Looks like he's doing a few of these.
