The Who - You Better You Bet

We're Giving Away Sunflower Jam Tickets

The sixth annual SUNFLOWER JAM takes place on SUNDAY 16 SEPTEMBER at the ROYAL ALBERT HALL and there is a stellar line-up of rock and roll talent on show to raise money for a great cause.

Host Jeremy Irons will be on hand once again to move marshall the proceedings, and the musical line-up this year is spectacular. Living Legends BRIAN MAY & KERRY ELLIS, BRUCE DICKINSON, IAN PAICE and JOHN PAUL JONES will all perform along with ALFIE BOE and MARK KING, who is appearing for the first time!

And once again there is a brilliant house band on show to back up those legends. The house band features Paul Wix Wickins as Musical Director & keyboardist, Uli Jon Roth on guitar, Steve Balsamo and Margo Bucanhan on vocals, Jerry Brown on drums and Nick Fyffe on bass.

As well as a great bill and some great music, this is bound to be a poignant affair as the late, great Jon Lord - a longtime supporter of the Sunflower Jam - had been due to perform, which means that this year's event will give some of his close friends a chance to say goodbye.

Tickets are on sale right now from the link below.


We have a few pairs of tickets to this year's Sunflower Jam to give away to Planet Rock listeners. The seats are located in the Grand Tier, so they're in one of the best locations in this legendary venue. 

Nicky is giving a pair away every day in his show from Monday to Friday next week.

To win them all you need to do is tune into his show from 6pm on Monday and listen out for a question relating to an artist that is either playing this year or has played at one of the previous events. If you know then answer then head to the Planet Rock homepage, click on the great big Sunflower Jam logo and tell us the correct answer to go into a prize draw.

Nicky will be announcing the winner each night at the end of his show.
