Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson is set to visit Exeter Phoenix this autumn as part of a new UK tour.

Following 2011’s appearance on BBC2’s Later With Jools Holland, and the release of his long-awaited autobiography, Looking Back At Me, Wilko Johnson is back on the road.

The original Dr Feelgood guitarist‘s choppy guitar style and interesting dress sense kept pub-rock rocking the pubs during the Seventies.

After a stint with Ian Dury and The Blockheads, the Wilko Johnson Band was formed with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Dylan Howe on drums, adding up to one of the most exciting R&B bands in the world today.

In 2009, Johnson featured in Julien Temple’s Oil City Confidential – a fascinating full-length feature film documentary about Dr Feelgood and their roots in Canvey Island.

The movie received many accolades, including the Vision Award at the MOJO Honours List 2010.

Support for the West Country show comes from special guests Virgil and the Accelerators.

Wilko Johnson hits Exeter Phoenix on October 12, 2012. Tickets are on sale now.
