Born in Cambridge in 1950, Tom Robinson first became known in the late 1970s as a musician and LGBT activist with the Tom Robinson Band (TRB). In 1977 the band's Top 5 debut release 2-4-6-8 Motorway became one of the landmark singles of the UK punk era. Other hits included Glad To Be Gay and Up Against The Wall.

As a solo artist Tom had further solo hits in 1983 with War Baby and Atmospherics: Listen To The Radio, and co-wrote songs with Peter Gabriel, Elton John and Dan Hartman. His last studio album Only The Now (2015) featured guests such as Billy Bragg, John Grant and Ian McKellen and was followed by festival dates including Latitude, Green Man and headlining the Left Field stage at Glastonbury.

As a radio broadcaster Tom hosts three shows a week on BBC Radio 6 Music, served for 10 years on the Ivor Novello Awards committee and was awarded a fellowship of LIPA in recognition of his support for new music with BBC Introducing.

Tom's debut album Power In The Darkness was launched 40 years ago in Victoria Park, London in front of 80,000 people at Rock Against Racism's legendary Carnival Against The Nazis. The album went gold in the UK and Japan and was followed by a 28-date UK tour with the (then unknown) Stiff Little Fingers as guest support act.

This is a standing show.
