Asked by Radio X's Johnny Vaughan if he could give any hints on special guests, he said: "Look, I'm not [announcing] any special guests. I'm selling them on my own. Anyone who wants to play with me, fine, but they aint selling me tickets. I'm selling tickets on my own as a singular person and then after that I'm getting as many guests as I can!"
He added: "Listen kids. We don't mess about here. If you wanna come in, get tickets and we'll get some guests in.”

The news comes off the back of Jamie T’s new album The Theory of Whatever - which includes the singles St George Wharf Tower and The Old Style Raiders - scoring a number one in the UK charts.

Speaking about scoring his first ever UK No.1, he said: "It's wonderful, mate. It's a wonderful thing for my family and my mum and my dad and just to know it.

"It's a wonderful thing at this age. I'm 36 now. I'm fat and old in music so to have it at this point is a wonderful thing."

The south Londoner returned to the stage in May after a 5-year hiatus, performing an intimate show at London’s Subterania, ahead of a triumphant headline performance at the John Peel stage at Glastonbury.

Jamie T's Finsbury Park gig will no doubt be a hero’s welcome following a major 2022 UK tour.

The 11-date nationwide tour runs throughout November and includes a performance at London’s Alexandra Palace – which sold out in just 20 minutes.
