He joins a host of other artists for the five day event including Jamie T, Guillemots, Damon Albarn‘s new band The Good, The Bad And The Queen and The Who, who will be performing their mini-rock opera ‘Wire And Glass’ in full.

The event takes place at the revamped Roundhouse venue in Camden from October 25-29.

The BBC Electric Proms will be extensively broadcast on BBC television, radio and online.
