Fatboy Slim announces Australian tour

Perennial favourite Fatboy Slim has announced a new Australian tour which will see him return down under in 2020.

The man behind the The Rockerfella Skank has been proclaimed one of the best DJs on the planet and he’ll be working his way around the country kicking off the tour in Melbourne on the 24th of January, and visiting Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide before wrapping things up in Perth on the 2nd of February.

While Fatboy Slim has only released four albums during his career, Norman Cook, the man behind the moniker is a prolific musician who works under many other aliases. Cook first came to prominence as a member of 80’s British band The Housemartins, but he later found greater success when he turned to dance music.

Cook has performed as, or been part of, Beats International, Pizzaman, Freak Power, Brighton Port Authority and The Mighty Dub Katz. He’s also put records out under a forever growing list of pseudonyms.

Fatboy Slim’s last album came out all the way back in 2004, the last time he chatted to OUTinPerth he told us he wasn’t recording new music because he realised he just enjoyed DJing more than anything.

Last week he offered a new version of his classic tune Right Here, Right Now featuring climate activist Greta Thunberg.
