Jonathan Ross – who is sitting in for Terry Wogan this week – played new single Takin’ on the World for the third time this week today on BBC Radio 2, and with your help we can get the new single played tomorrow and Friday too!
After the 9 o’clock news each morning, two tracks are played and people are invited to vote for their favourite.
So far, Amsterdam have received more votes than Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Foy Vance and the Go-Betweens, so Takin’ on the World will be pitted against another track tomorrow.
This is massive exposure for the band, on the UK’s most-listened-to radio station, so with your help we can get the single played every day this week.
All you have to do is text track to support the single tomorrow morning at about 9:10am. We’re not sure whether Amsterdam will be ‘track a’ or ‘track b’, so listen or log on to our forum tomorrow then make sure you get your vote in before 9:30am. Keep checking the site for news on how we’re doing.
Meanwhile, England’s best live band are back in their natural habitat this Friday night when they kick off their fourth tour of the year in Liverpool.
As those who have seen the band perform can testify, the Amsterdam live experience is central to the philosophy of the band and the boys promise that this tour will be every bit as life affirming as previous ones.
The opening show takes place at the Carling Academy which is next to Lime Street station and tickets are £7 from See Tickets or you WILL be able to pay on the door.
Support for the evening comes from rockin’ up and coming new Liverpool band The Circle as well as very special guests The Falling Calls, who are Jamie Murphy’s new band. Jamie was previously one of the two singers in successful Liverpool band Space.
Amsterdam will be onstage at about 9:45pm. Doors are 7:30pm.
The boys will then take to the road so if you have any friends, work colleagues, family members or just associates who really love rock and roll music then bring them along to one of the shows. Tickets for all dates are now on sale.
The fabulous new Amsterdam t-Shirt will also be on sale throughout the tour!
