Jamie Lenman has today announced a very special and intimate streamed, online live show called ‘Separation Event’ which is presented by the folks at Audiotree and will be live at 8pm GMT on Wednesday May the 19th – tickets are on sale now!
‘Separation Event’ is the culmination of eighteen months’ work, from the recording of 2020’s ‘King Of Clubs’ mini album, to its first live performance in full. Featuring nine star guests from across the world of music and cabaret, Lenman presents the entire album plus two new songs and a rare monologue from the original sessions. In between tracks, Lenman discusses how the songs came together and how the guest artists have contributed to these truly unique versions, mixed to album standard by Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots) and filmed with cinematic flair by Ben Pollard (Lenmania)
The event features a host of special guests including Sam from Wargasm, Will from Black Peaks, Djamila from Ithaca, Jen from False Advertising, long standing producer (and one half of Never Not Nothing) Space, Damien from The St Pierre Snake Invasion and more.
Any tickets purchased for the show will have access to infinite repeat viewings for 72 hours after the start of the first showing. Tickets are £11 advance or £14 on the day of the show.
Jamie Lenman explains a bit about ‘Separation Event’ – I’ve been working on this since the start of the year and it’s great to have it finally come out – it sounds great, it looks great, it’s like a real old-fashioned concert film. The most exciting thing by far is the amazing guest artists I managed to persuade to contribute – not just from the music world but from the wider performing community. It feels like a real snapshot of the UK scene at this time, in the way Lenmania was a couple years back. I’m incredibly proud to have them in my film.
Jamie Lenman has also just been announced on Download Festival 2022 and will be playing live across the UK on an acoustic tour through July. Tickets on sale now but with shows selling out fast, it is advised for fans to purchase while they can.
“These acoustic dates feel like unfinished business – we had ’em booked for last winter but then everything went to hell, so I’m really looking forward to getting out there and seeing people as soon as it’s safe. If anything, acoustic shows are probably better suited to a summer setting, and with most festivals sadly postponing for another year I’m going to try and fill that gap as best I can.”
