Dr John Cooper Clarke with special guests: The I Wanna Be Yours Tour

Thursday 7 October 2021


Details


John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’. Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents.

Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today’s pop culture. Aside from his trademark ‘look’ continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge. His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B.

These collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 recent global number 1 albums – with The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John’s best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed A:M Album.

I Wanna Be Your Tour will be based around John's new autobiography coming in October.
