The award-winning creator of huge hits such as The Rockafeller Skank, Praise You, and Right Here, Right Now will be bringing his legendary sounds to the Eden Project next summer.

Norman Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim, has carved a lasting legacy throughout his multi-decade career. A product of the vibrant Brighton club scene, Cook has graced prestigious stages across the globe, including more than 17 consecutive years at Glastonbury, Coachella, Sziget Festival and the London 2012 Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony.

His live shows are known for their high energy, unforgettable curation and synchronised visuals, with no sign of slowing down.

Cook said: “Here we go again everyone… This tour covers some stunning locations, many of which I’ve never played before and I’m really excited about it. Roll on the summer!”

Rita Broe, Managing Director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Fatboy Slim to the Eden Sessions. This will be the first time he’s performed at Eden, and we can’t imagine a better setting for one of his iconic shows. It’s going to be a momentous night!”

Cook’s music has been a part of the fabric of popular culture over the past four decades. His first debut album as Fatboy Slim, Better Living Through Chemistry, was released in 1996 and included UK Top 40 Hit Everybody Needs a 303.

The tour announcement comes hot on the heels of the 25th anniversary reissue of the DJ’s second album, You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby, originally released in 1998. The iconic album firmly etched its place in the music history of the 90s, transcending genres and shifting seamlessly between hip-hop, reggae and jangle pop.

The iconic single, Praise You, from this second album, secured his first UK solo number one in 1998. The music video, featuring actor and director Spike Jonze, went on to win three MTV Video Music Awards in 1999. In 2022, Rolling Stone named The Rockafeller Skank, the second huge track from this album, in its “200 Greatest dance Songs of All Time”.

The 2000 single, Weapon of Choice, from the third Fatboy Slim album, went on to win a Grammy and six MTV Video Music Awards for its accompanying music video starring award-winning actor Christopher Walken.

Fatboy Slim is known for innovating and being at the forefront of big beat dance culture. In 2013, he made history by being the first DJ to perform at the House of Commons to support the Last Night a DJ Saved My Life Foundation, a charity dedicated to raising funds for grassroots community projects through the power of music.

Earlier this month (October) he put on the world’s biggest holographic performance over the skies of London at Alexandra Palace.
