Wilko Johnson announces he will play a fundraiser. He is an English singer, guitarist, songwriter and actor, who is particularly associated with the rhythm and blues band Dr. Feelgood and he is for a hospital where his life had been saved from Cancer just a few months back, he is now cancer free and he says he is ready to return back to the concert stage. He will perform on March 6, 215 at the Junction in Cambridge, England,and it his opportunity to give back to Addenbrooke’s, the facility the life saving treatment.
Calling it “a tiny, tiny gesture of thanks for what they did for me,” Johnson has pledged the proceeds from the show to the hospital.
As Johnson earlier told the BBC, he was already in his bed at Addenbrooke’s when his collaborative album with Roger Daltrey, ‘Going Back Home,’ arrived in stores. “I remember people coming in and telling me, ‘It’s really selling — it’s been really successful,’ and me going, ‘Really good, man,’ while not really quite aware of what was going on.”
He has a new start in life, but there are times when he struggles to even come to realize that he has beat the decease that doctors believed would kill him even before he started recording
‘Going Back Home,’ but he’s eager to return to making music — and share his gift with audiences. “I’ve never had so long not playing,” he added. “As early as possible in the new year I want to get back onstage and play.”
