Hong Kong 2008 concert update?

Added on Sunday 09 November 2008, 21:55 (GMT)

It was recently reported that the band would be performing in Hong Kong later this year although (as we're almost at the end of the year!) no news had appeared.  Well, it seems like there isn't an actual concert (thanks to the review of one of the recent Audi gigs in Germany), but more an appearance by Jay.

The Dragon-I club in Hong Kong has Jamiroquai listed to perform there on 22 November for their 6th anniversary.  I'm guessing they just mean Jay because on the Lifestyle Hong Kong website they say... "Jamiroquai & Danny Rampling.  The duo comes to HK to celebrate Dragon-I's 6th birthday."  For information, Danny Rampling is a famous dance music DJ.

Deary me, you're so close guys - Korea then Hong Kong, how about a little ol' trip to Australia - I'm getting jealous with all these gigs in far away lands lol :) :) :)


Again you see that some people see Jay as Jamiroquai and not as a band.

"The funky folk at Dragon-I have secured another big name for their sixth anniversary party on Saturday week. Returning to the city is space cowboy Jay Kay, from UK soul, groove, and acid jazz band Jamiroquai.
This will be his first return since performing a sold-out concert here in 2002. We're not sure how much of his hat collection he's bringing, but he will be sharing the decks with a popular DJ of the Ibiza scene, Danny Rampling.

The club is also promising a performance at the anniversary event. For the record, Jay Kay is coming without a band, so his little show will be to backing tracks. In that case, the admission charge is a little steep. The gig costs HK$700 at the door or HK$500 for advance purchases at the club, which is on the first floor of The Centrium, 60 Wyndham Street. Phone 3110 1222.

backing tracks? what does it mean?

It means advertising, money and greed. Yesterday I was, half the man I used to be...

Marco - A backing track usually means just pre-recorded music that is played via laptop, CD or whatever and allows Jay to sing over it. Enjoy Hong Kong and remember, that the band sold out multiple concerts here in 2005, so I'm sure that the USA will come out and represent again...just incase you were considering swinging our way. :)
