The party-starting machine is responsible for some of the biggest hits of the last few decades and his incomparable energy and true passion for live shows, makes him the icon he is.  More than your average DJ set, Fatboy Slim takes things to a whole new dizzying level.

Fatboy Slim, aka Norman Cook, entered the UK acid house scene in the ‘90s. Early success came with the release of hit singles Everybody Needs a 303 and Going Out of My Head, taken from Better Living Through Chemistry. Soon after came The Rockafeller Skank, a precursor for hit album You’ve Come A Long Way Baby, which delivered his first UK #1 in Praise You, as well as club banger Right Here Right Now, which peaked at #2.

Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars followed, featuring Weapon of Choice, with an unmissable video directed by Spike Jonze and starring Christopher Walken dancing in an empty hotel lobby. It’s widely regarded as one of the best music videos of all time, having won several awards, including a Grammy for Best Music Video.

Cook took things to another level again with the undeniably huge Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat, and more recently with massive singles like Where U Iz and Boom F**king Boom and last year’s banging Praise You (Purple Disco Machine Extended Remix).

Presale runs for 24 hours from Wednesday, November 23. For complete tour and ticket information, head here.
