Legendary superstar DJ makes a welcome return to Hull this October to take part in 35th anniversary celebrations.
The must-attend event of the autumn, FATBOY SLIM takes centre stage on Friday 18th October for one of the most eagerly anticipated intimate gigs the City has ever seen.
Fatboy Slim – alter ego of double Brit Award DJ Norman Cook (Right Here, Right Now // Praise You // Eat Sleep Rave Repeat and many more has achieved massive chart success around the planet selling millions of albums and singles along the way.
We are over the moon to welcome Norman back to The Adelphi Club where he has performed and rehearsed many times in the 1980’s. Needless to say, you’ve come a long way, baby.
Norman first rose to fame in the 1980s as the Housemartins bassist, adopting the Fatboy Slim monicker in 1996 and racking up major mainstream success with his own take on electronic dance music alongside spellbinding live shows.
Norman Cook, commented:
“Talk about full circle… I remember rehearsing at the Adelphi in my first band 34 years ago at the very start of my career… and now I get to go back all these years later, for a special show…..head held high!
“It’s gonna be emotional…..”
The event at The Adelphi Club coincides with the 35th anniversary of the house becoming a live music venue although a liquor license was first granted in 1923 as The Victory Club & Institute for Veterans of WWI.
These days, Norman’s show involves not just playing his own patented brand of “party acid house”, but also a complex audio-visual production.
With a capacity of only 200, this show is more of a nod and a celebration of grass roots music venues across the nation. These are the places where it all begins and did so for The Housemartins, Pulp, Radiohead, Idles and thousands more.
Since Paul Jackson opened the venue in October 1984, over thirty thousand bands and knocking on a million punters have graced the tiny musical institution.
Paul Jackson, Founder of The Adelphi Club, said:
“I first met Norman in what must have been 1984, when he was delegated to give me my fiver for a Housemartins rehearsal at The Adelphi Club. He immediately struck me both as an extremely nice and smart guy, but also as someone (as I had found with his close friend Paul Heaton) who would excel in whatever he turned his arm to. He deserves great credit for his successful career to date. To achieve mainstream success while sidestepping over commodification and genre categorisation is rare…a thing I love about Norman’s music is the ever-present sense of fun, along with a constant threat of a surprise around the corner. Well done Norman Cook.”
Sybil Bell, Founder of Independent Venue Week, added:
“To say we’re excited about this is a massive understatement. I saw Norman at The People’s March on 23rd March and told him that Paul Jackson was still running the New Adelphi Club. He couldn’t believe that he was still there – he remembers him and the club so fondly. So we talked about the possibility of a live show. He was as up for it as we were. We thought it might take years given how busy he is so it’s amazing it’s happening so soon. The love for Fatboy Slim is as strong as the love for Paul and The New Adelphi Club. What a way for one total legend to honour another. We’ll DEFINTIELY be down the front for this one.”
