TOM Robinson will celebrate the 40th anniversary of his classic album, Power In The Darkness, with a live London show at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday, October 27, 2018.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday, February 23.

The Tom Robinson Band’s debut album, Power In The Darkness, was first performed 40 years ago in Victoria Park, London in front of 80,000 people at Rock Against Racism’s Carnival Against The Nazis alongside Steel Pulse, The Clash and X-Ray Spex.

The album was certified gold in the UK and Japan resulting in a major 28-date UK tour supported by Stiff Little Fingers in the Autumn of 1978.

When Tom performed the entire Power In The Darkness LP at London’s 100 Club last year, all three shows sold out almost instantly.

In October, to mark the album’s 40th anniversary, Tom will once again be performing it live on tour in the UK – culminating in a special headline show at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday October, 27.

As ever his incendiary band features Faithless drummer Andy Treacey, Richard Ashcroft guitarist Adam Phillips, keyboard virtuoso Jim Simmons and Tom himself on bass and vocals.
