Former guitarist for Dr Feelgood, Wilko Johnson, announced last week that he has been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. He will go on a farewell tour, playing four dates in the UK in March. Via The Guardian:
Johnson’s manager, Robert Hoy, said: “The four UK dates represent an opportunity for Wilko to express his sincere thanks to his fans for all the support he has had over his long career.”
The four dates are:
London Koko – 6 March
Bilston Robin 2 – 7 March
Holmfirth Picturedrome – 8 March

Johnson has said he will not be undergoing chemotherapy, in order to be able to keep working as long as he can.
