Jamie Lidell has been shocking audiences for the past three years with his extraordinary live shows; which careen from glitzy Funkadelic extravaganza to hard electronic avant-garde showpieces. He was top draw at Sonar (Barcelona) and Ether Festivals (London) of recent years, performing at Ether juxtaposed with the London Sinfonietta, a bill that has toured to sold out coliseums and major performance houses across Europe.

A peerless vocal performer; his largely improvised shows have won him thousands of fans from Belfast to Tokyo. Reviewers have likened him to 'a 21st century reincarnation of Little Richard' with 'a soul voice fried in honey like Sly Stone or Prince, and a beatboxing talent to make Muhammad Ali quake in his Everlast, delivering time and again 'a thrilling, visceral performance', 'pure, visceral power: a scintillating display of demented musical and physical energy', both 'exhilarating' and 'astounding'. Jamie Lidell is British music's best kept secret, about to be unleashed.
