Amsterdam will begin the year by hitting the stage this Saturday night in London town. The band are on stage at 9:30 pm. Support comes from the brilliant Dan Donnelly at 8:00pm and south London’s Dry riser at 8:45pm.

The gang are very excited to be starting the year with a volley of Amsterdam classics, new songs and some old Pele pearls. You can pay on the door.

Also, for anybody in the Shropshire area Ian will be playing a FREE St. Patricks night show at the Horseshoe Inn at Ratlinghope.

Two great bring-a-newbie gigs!

The two up-and-coming shows represent a new chapter in the ever changing Amsterdam story so we here at HQ want all of you to bring a newbie to these shows.

Do you have any friends who aren’t aware of the greatness of an Amsterdam live show? Well bring them along to either London or Liverpool!

You can tickle your friends’ fancy by downloading and emailing them one of the Amsterdam classics Takin’ on the world  (MP3, 4MB) or Home (MP3, 6.6MB) for free.

The band will be performing both shows as the full seven-piece ensemble with songs from the entirety of Ian’s career as well as a few of the magnificent brand new tunes the gang are working on right now.

You can get an update on this thread in the forum on how things are progressing with the new album.

Also, if anybody is in Liverpool this Wednesday night (24 February) Ian will be performing a solo show at the brand new Mojo venue.

Paul did five years great service in Amsterdam and is looking forward to meeting up with some old friends and playing his new music to the Amsterdamsters.

Main support will come from the Kevin Critchely outfit who released their debut album last year to critical praise.
