Fatboy Slim heads to TOM as part of our 'Gig for a Gig' scheme
THIS IS HUGE. Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) will perform a FOUR HOUR SET here at TOM as part of our brand new Gig for a Gig scheme.
Fresh off of his sell-out arena tour, the DJ and producer will be donating a performance to TOM, with proceeds from the show going towards continuing our vision to support and host exciting and innovative emerging artists. The show is part of our new Gig for a Gig scheme, which will see big-name performers play intimate headlining shows at TOM in order to support new talent.
Since re-opening in 2011 after being purchased by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas (creators of the international hit show STOMP), TOM has presented over 1,500 different shows, supported over 300 local artists and performers, and has played host to the likes of Katherine Ryan, Paul Weller, 1927 Theatre, Caitlin Moran, Ricky Gervais, Spymonkey, Michael McIntyre, Sleaford Mods and more (you could say “We’ve come a long long way together…”)
Speaking about the upcoming event, Norman Cook has this message for you:
“Brighton – think of this as an apology. I wasn’t able to bring the full 360-degree arena show to Brighton during the last tour (no arenas), so this is a special one-off mini version of the show. I can’t wait to see you there!”
Mark Gordon, Marketing Manager at The Old Market, says:
“The Gig for a Gig scheme is our way to help the next generation of artists take the next step in their careers, and we’re beyond delighted that Norman Cook has generously donated his time to the cause. As a cornerstone of the British music scene, we couldn’t ask for a better artist to kick off this exciting series of events.”
