Unfortunately, due to a mix up at the Vivaz club in Scarbobough and the boys desire to get cracking with the new album, the Friday 15 December date has now been postponed. The show will be rescheduled for early next year. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Amsterdam can now announce their first ever ‘unplugged’ concert at the Philharmonic hall (Rodewald Suite) on Friday 16 February. This will be the first show the boys will have done after recording the new album and a full ensemble of musicians is promised as well as some special guests.
Ian commented ‘We’re all very excited by this show because we’ve never done anything like this before. It gives us a fabulous opportunity to play some of my songs in the setting they are supposed to be heard and play with other musicians who aren’t actually in Amsterdam. The more emotional tunes will be to the fore on this night, I can’t wait.’
Ticket information for this special one off will be announced very soon.
For those of you coming to the big Christmas party in London this Saturday night get there early to see Lucky Jim. Gordon Graeme who leads Lucky Jim used to be in the Lost Soul Band who did many shows with Pele in the nineties – listen to their superb music at www.myspace.com/luckyjimmusic.
The boys will again be joined by the fabulous Anna Jenkins on violin and tickets for the big party are still available from www.ticketweb.co.uk and www.seetickets.com or you will be able to pay on the door. Don’t forget to stick around afterwards for the Amsterdam party which will be lead by the band in full swing!
Also, tickets for the last Amsterdam performance of the year at the Joe Strummer show in Portsmouth on December 21 are going very quickly so to avoid disappointment book at www.wedgewood-rooms.co.uk now. This show will sell out.
