Fatboy Slim Offers 'Ticket to Palookaville'

Published: 2004-10-28
With the release of his fourth studio-album, England's Fatboy Slim (aka Norman Cook) has plans to visit a few continents on the globe. This October Cook has already performed 9 shows in his native Britain, and November will see the artist explore North America on his 'One Way Ticket to Palookaville' tour.

The first North American date of the tour will be Cook's one and only Canadian stop. That would be November 10th in Toronto, Ontario at Toronto Film Studios. Fatboy Slim will carry on with six more North American dates, all in the United States. After one quick zip back to England on November 26th, the North American leg of the tour will wrap up on December 11th in Dallas, Texas.

'Palookaville' is the name of the album Fatboy Slim is promoting on his tour of the UK and North America. Released in early October, 'Palookaville' is the follow-up to 'Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars', which makes it Cook's first studio-album in four years. There has been one single lifted from the disc, the internet focused 'Slash Dot Dash'.

If fans register at Fatboy Slim's official site (www.fatboyslim.net), it's possible to access one minute clips of all 'Palookaville' tracks. Also available at the site is the video for 'Slash Dot Dash', and the artwork for the new album.
