Live album news and new dates
We can now confirm that Amsterdam will be recording their first ever live album at the up and coming Borderline show in London on Friday 14 July!
The famous incendiary Amsterdam live spectacular will be captured for the very first time by a mobile recording studio down at the boys most-favourite venue in the whole world.
You can still buy tickets from Seetickets and Ticketweb, so come along and bring your singing voices to add to the magical atmosphere the gang always create down in Soho. It’s going to be one of those evenings.
The boys can also announce some more dates for the summer. Firstly Ian and Paul will play a rare acoustic show on the Wirral at the end of the month before the big London show.

Also Ian will be performing an acoustic set this coming Friday 16 June in aid of NCADC (National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns) at the University of Manchester Burlington Rooms, Schunk building (off Oxford Street). Other acts will include Fultons point, Al Baker and Al Parry. Ian will be on at about 10pm.
We can also now happily confirm that Amsterdam have parted company with Beat Crazy records. The band will now sit down and plan the next move with their management team at Cruisin music who also represent The Stranglers and Tina Cousins.
The first chapter of a post-Beat Crazy world is to be the live album which will include new songs, tunes from The Journey as well as older Amsterdam classics.
Ian and Amsterdam are also hard at work writing the follow up to The Journey and were very happy with the way the new songs went last Saturday night. The boys hope to commence recording on a new album later in the year with Ian commenting “My pen is on fire at the moment, all the receptors are up”.
