Wilko Johnson to play the Academy

Wilko Johnson

Blues-rock legend and founding member of Dr. Feelgood, Wilko Johnson will play the Academy in Dublin on Friday, May 30th.

Known for his energetic, chopping guitar sound and his importance establishing the R&B fused with blues-rock music of Dr. Feelgood during the early to mid 70’s, Wilko Johnson is considered by many to be one of the fore-fathers of punk. The musician’s time in the group is documented in the 2009 Julien Temple film Oil City Confidential.

Johnson’s eclectic and highly respected career, spanning several solo albums with the Wilko Johnson band, also included a brief stint with new wave legends Ian Dury & The Blockheads resulting in the 1980 studio album Laughter

Johnson also recently appeared in four episodes of Game of Thrones season one and two portraying Ilyn Payne.

Tickets for Wilko Johnson at the Academy in Dublin on Friday, May 30th are priced at €26 and will go on sale this Friday, March 14th at 10am. For more information visit
