    As a solo electronic act, he has won ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards. His records as Fatboy Slim also helped to popularise the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s.

    Cook first rose to fame in the 1980s as the bassist of the indie rock band The Housemartins who scored a UK number-one single with their a cappella cover of Isley-Jasper-Isley’s “Caravan of Love”. After the band split, Cook formed Beats International whose début album spawned their signature hit, “Dub Be Good to Me” which was another UK number-one as well as going on to become the seventh best-selling single of 1990 in the UK. Cook then went on to join numerous other acts including Freak Power, Pizzaman and The Mighty Dub Katz to moderate success.

    Cook adopted the Fatboy Slim moniker in 1996 and released Better Living Through Chemistry to critical acclaim. Follow-ups You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby, Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars, and Palookaville, as well as their associated singles, including “The Rockafeller Skank”, “Praise You”, “Right Here, Right Now”, “Weapon of Choice”, and “Wonderful Night”, were also met with positive reviews and commercial success.

    In 2008, Cook founded a project called The Brighton Port Authority.[5] Cook has been responsible for successful remixes for Cornershop, Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, Groove Armada, and Wildchild.

SOLD OUT: Fatboy Slim - Alexandra Palace

February 24, 2018, 8:00pm - February 24, 2018, 5:00pm

Tickets go on General sale on Friday 6th October at 9am here: bit.ly/FatAllyPallyThe last 12 months have been another year of firsts for Fatboy Slim… He played London’s O2 Arena for the first time… on a revolving stage, Glastonbury saw him play a back 2 back set for the first time in many years, choosing Eats Everything as his new co-hort. Releasing a 7inch vinyl with an edible insert was definitely a first, as well as debut sets at techno festival Melt, Reading festival and a landmark show in Israel! He even played in between Jamie Jones and Carl Cox at Futur Festival in Italy, no one saw that coming.Of course losing virginities isn’t all he's done in 2017, He returned to Amnesia in Ibiza for a triumphant 2nd year residency at the super club, he headlined Wildlife and Parklife festivals in the UK and he’s about to travel to North and South America for a Halloween tour of the region.Fatboy’s relentless pursuit of fun and his unerring desire to spread nonsense around the world is what makes a Fatboy party stand out, in his own words "It's half-voyeurism, half-vampire; my secret of eternal youth. Not drinking the blood of the young – absorbing their sweat! I genuinely love it."So Norm will start 2018 with another first, playing an iconic venue he’s never performed at but has alway wanted to… Alexandra Palacebit.ly/FatAllyPally
