Dr John Cooper Clarke - Luckiest Guy Alive Tour
FINAL CURTAIN CALL
This show is no longer running.
Britain’s best loved poet Dr John Cooper Clarke is heading to the London Palladium on Sat 24 November 2018.
The show is a sensational showcase of spoken word –a chance to see John perform material both classic and brand new as he delves into his vast back catalogue, as well as his prolific collection of new work, all read from his trademark battered notebooks, delivered in John’s legendary, rapid fire style and iconic Salford drawl. Combine this John’s hilarious observations, gags and off the wall chat and it adds up to the chance to see a living legend at the top of his game.
As we enter 2018, John Cooper Clarke is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on pop culture. His influence can also be heard in the satirical and keen social observations of artists such as Plan B and the Arctic Monkeys. Alex Turner, frontman of the Artic Monkeys cites him as a huge inspiration and this was highlighted by the band’s cover of JCC’s I Wanna Be Yours on their critically acclaimed fifth studio album ‘AM’. UK rapper Plan B featured John’s poetry in his directorial film debut ‘Ill Manors’ – their duet Pity The Plight appears in the movie and on the films hit soundtrack.
These collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 global number 1 albums in the last few years.
With support from Geoffrey Allerton, Mike Garry, Luke Wright, Toria Garbutt and Clare Ferguson-Walker.
As well as his regular TV appearances on the likes of Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Would I Lie To You and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, John also host 6 Music shows and his own BBC Radio 4 Show “John Cooper Clarke Live at the BBC”.
