Napoleon IIIrd: Feb UK Tour with iLiKETRAiNS Announced
aaamusic | On 09, Dec 2010
Napoleon IIIrd (aka James Mabbett) is touring the UK with iLiKETRAiNS this February, on the back of a year that saw his second album “Christiania” critically lauded in the mainstream music media.
The Napoleon IIIrd live show has grown to match his ambitious new sound. Having called it a day on the solo performance, Mabbett has assembled an indie-all-star band that includes, at various times, members of Sky Larkin, Internet Forever, Keyboard Choir, Stairs To Korea, DREAMTRAK and AK/DK. The band’s captivating debut took place in front of a packed-out Club NME at KOKO in Camden, with live brass, duelling drummers and an inspired ensemble vocal performance fronted by Napoleon IIIrd’s distinctive throaty roar.
This is a show not to be missed. The tour represents a chance to see “one of the most inventive solo artists in the world today” (Drowned In Sound) stretching himself to create a live experience that captures the ambition of his studio work.
The dates are as follows:
02 Brighton The Hope
03 Bath Moles
05 Norwich Arts Centre
06 Oxford Jericho
07 Nottingham Bodega
09 Sheffield Fusion
10 Liverpool Shipping Forecast
11 York The Duchess
For his last London show of 2010, Napoleon IIIrd will play a band performance at Hoxton Hall on December 9th. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with guest list requests.
