Tom Robinson

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 6 th April 2019

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

An night of songs and stories delivered at close quarters in an intimate venue by broadcaster and activist Tom Robinson. Tom's musical journey began with getting discovered by Ray Davies in 1974 and has included a BBC ban for being Glad To be Gay, rocking against racism alongside The Clash, headlining Glastonbury with Peter Gabriel, writing lyrics for Elton John, drug smuggling in East Germany, two nervous breakdowns and a period in tabloid hell after falling in love with a woman. Having made his peace with the BBC, he's presented programmes on all the corporation's national radio networks, and his broadcasting skills have won two Sony Radio Academy awards.

When performing his 1978 breakthrough album Power In The Darkness recently, Tom sold out three gigs at London's 100 Club, and subsequently a headline show at Shepherds Bush Empire.

Over these three evenings Tom - accompanied by his small band - will be playing two sets a night with an interval. This means that alongside such crowd favourites as War Baby, Glad To Be Gay and 2-4-6-8 Motorway there will also be a chance to hear some of the less frequently-preformed gems from the 14 studio albums he's released over the past four decades.
