10 years since Seasick Steve first appeared on the BBC as part of Jools Holland’s ‘Hootenanny’ in 2006, a legendary performance which turned him into a household name overnight, with his debut solo album ‘Dog House Music’. Steve celebrated this 10th anniversary in style, and tore off the roof off this iconic London venue with the help of his amazing fans in what was the biggest headline show of his career.
Since that momentous performance, Seasick Steve has established himself as one of the best live acts in music today, with sold-out tours and some of the most memorable festival appearances around the globe. Steve has previously sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall, Eventim Apollo and O2 Academy Brixton.
This was Steve’s only scheduled performance in the UK in 2016.
Seasick Steve said:
“When I realised it was going to be 10 years since I was on Jools’ show, and 10 years since you guys gave me this job I decided that we gonna have a party. A ’10 Years Out of The Dog House’ Party.’ Look what ya' done!”
