Ladies and Gentlemen. This is the big one. Eric Roberson will be back in London Town in August and October this year.
Over August Bank Holiday weekend (Sat 27th & Sun 28th) he will be hosting/headlining the Stevie Wonder tribute night at the Jazz Cafe. On this night he will be supported by Omar, Janet Kay and Carroll Thompson. Tickets are a very respectable £20 and available from HMV tickets (here).
The main even however is Thursday October 13th 2011. Indigo2. Eric Roberson will be performing his annual love letter to not only neo-soul, but to all live music. His shows are consistently amazing, and with a new album, Mr Nice Guy, being released in a few weeks time, it is sure to be even more explosive than before.
Tickets are £25 (+ fees) and available from Ticketmaster (here).
What are you waiting for, book your tickets now. I go into every Eric Roberson show expecting the sun, the moon and the stars. Even with those stellar expectations Eric always manages to deliver whilst also throwing in Saturn, Venus, Nebulan 6 and the Starship Enterprise for good measure. His freestyles are worth the entrance fee alone!
I haven’t seen anything about who is supporting him, however he has been touring extensively with Vivian Green in the US. If he brings her along, this will be a gig made in heaven and blessed by the music Gods themselves! I am actually overcome with joy and will have a bounce in my step for the next week… month… entire year because of this show!
Ps. Did I mention how excited I am about this one!?!?!?
