Fatboy Slim has announced a show at London's Alexandra Parade on Sat 24 Feb 2018, with tickets on general sale Fri 6 Oct at 9am.
It'll be the first time Norman Cook has ever performed at Ally Pally, which he describes as an 'iconic venue I've never played but always wanted to'.
After rising to prominence as part of The Housemartins in the 1980s (scoring a number 1 hit with 'Caravan of Love' in the process), Cook formed Beat International, before adopting the name Fatboy Slim, a title that continues to serve him well.
Debut album, 1996's Better Living Through Chemistry was followed swiftly 1998's You've Come A Long Way Baby, which included the smash hits 'The Rockafeller Skank', 'Praise You', 'Gangster Tripping' and 'Right Here, Right Now'.
He's well known too for his innovative music videos, with Christopher Walken's dancing for 'Weapon of Choice' and Spike Jonze's guerrilla video for 'Praise You' particular favourites.
