Fatboy Slim announces 2019 arena tour

The ultra funky DJ will play six big shows this February.

Legendary DJ Fatboy Slim (aka Norman Cook) will be taking to the decks in a huge way early next year. He’s just announced the biggest tour he’s ever done – six UK arena dates.

It’s dubbed The Round Trip because, as he says on his Twitter page, he’ll be “slap bang on the middle of the dance floor”. The tour will kick off on 21 February 2019 in London at The SSE Arena, Wembley and then stop in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow and Manchester, before wrapping up on 1 March 2019 at Nottingham Motorpoint Arena.

Fatboy Slim most recently smashed it with his sets at Reading & Leeds festival. Not satisfied with providing just listening and visual pleasure, he promised festival goers they could “eat my set” because he’d added taste to his live experience.

Last month Fatboy Slim released the new track Boom F**king Boom featuring Beardyman that’s sure to be a club hit.

 

This track follows on from, Where U Iz, the funky disco house track he released in springFatboy Slim has been busy throughout the summer. He’s done a regular gig, Tuesdays on Mars, at Pacha Ibiza. He also got to be the first DJ to play the i360, a fully enclosed glass viewing pod above Brighton beach in July.

21 February 2019 – The SSE Arena, Wembley, London
