Supporting The Blockheads: 3 March 2018

Event Details

  • Venue: O2

Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 17.11.32We’re very excited about the possibility of supporting our childhood heroes – The Blockheads – at the O2 next March.

For those of you who don’t know, The Blockheads formed in 1977 to promote Ian Dury’s album New Boots and Panties on the first Stiff Records tour of the UK.

They’re fronted by Derek ‘The Draw’ Hussey, who was Ian’s best friend and is now the band’s vocalist and wordsmith. Chaz Jankel, Norman Watt-Roy, John Turnbull and Mick Gallagher still remain from the original band and the current line-up is augmented by John Roberts on drums and a rolling line up of saxophonists including Gilad Atzmon, Terry Edwards or Dave Lewis.┬áThese legendary Brit-Funkers will be playing all the old favourites and new material.

Can’t wait!
