James Blake on Jools Holland and UK Tour Dates

| On 12, May 2011

Watch James Blake perform on Jools Holland
UK Tour Dates

James Blake is currently touring the US but before he left last weekend he appeared on Jools Holland on Friday to play Limit To You Love and The Wilhelm Scream, watch back at his performances
Since the release of his critically acclaimed eponymous debut album, James Blake has been busying himself playing the record live all over the world. He’s successfully been wowing crowds in venues from his London residency at the tiny St Pancras church in King’s Cross to his first ever trip to New York playing at the Williamsburg Music Hall, where the audience included a suitably impressed Bjork and Anthony Hegarty. This New York debut led him onto at least a show a day at this year’s SXSW and straight into a full-blown European tour.
For the London date of his forthcoming tour, James is currently collaborating with United Visual Artists, a lighting design group who have worked on the likes of the Massive Attack’s 100th Window world tour as well as U2’s Vertigo tour, creating a tailor-made, mighty impressive visual experience for the audience.

Up next for James here in the UK is the double A-side release of this new edit of Lindisfarne which combines parts I & 11 from the album & Unluck – two extraordinary pieces of music from his debut. This release is backed by his first fully-fledged UK tour and a host of summer festival performances including a Saturday night Park Stage slot at Glastonbury, Field Day, Green Man and Bestival.
