Amsterdam will pay tribute to the greatness that was Clash lead singer Joe Strummer not once but twice over the next few days. Joe passed away four years ago this week.
Firstly the band will play on Thursday 21st at the famous Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth. Ian has played here more than any other touring musician so it’s very close to the Amsterdam heart. Neville Staples Specials are also in attendance and our boys will be playing a full set. Tickets are available from
The night after on the 22nd Ian and Paulie will again honour Joe with an acoustic set at the Carling Academy in Liverpool. Other acts to appear on the night include The Crescent, The Aeroplanes, Western Promise and Radio Clash. Tickets are available from Ticketweb or Seetickets, or you can pay on the door.
Plus, there are photos from the current studio sessions in the photos section of this website, as well as Paulie’s blog live from the studio, in the forum.
