“When Covid put a stop to my 70th birthday tour in May 2020, our lovely promoters kindly rescheduled the shows to May 2021 – and our lovely audiences held on to their tickets. After nearly a year of hardship – for musicians, promoters and audiences alike – Covid has forced us to postpone our shows once again.”

The big difference this time is that yesterday I had my first vaccination. Despite some inevitable grim times still ahead, we’re confident that by May 2022 we will be raring to go. In anticipation, we’ve renamed the tour “Glad To Be Back.”

Although many of Tom Robinson‘s 70s contemporaries such as The Jam, Elvis Costello, and Ian Dury have spawned tribute bands, to the best of his knowledge no such act has ever attempted to cover his own back catalogue. Which of those songs, he wondered, would a Tom Robinson tribute band choose to assemble a full-on crowd-pleasing set?

There’d have to be the songs co-written with Elton John and Peter Gabriel. Also those unexpected comeback hits of the 1980s such as War Baby and Atmospherics. Not to mention the stone-cold punk-era classics that launched his career: Motorway, Power In The Darkness, Up Against The Wall, Too Good To Be True, and of course, the anthemic Glad To Be Gay.
