I'll be there ;-)

Wish y wife and son and I would be there, Russ! Lucky!

And two days later Argentina? This sounds like impossible to me..

Brenda, nothing is impossible when money speaks...

I belived all the band got 2 weeks off to chill in south america after chile.

Hey, hey, have you heard the news today ? The show is confirmed in Martinez (luxxxxurious hotel). 2000 dollars to see VIP dancin' next wednesday. Yes, the Sony area is definitely over my dear. Now the band's making money for itself. What a change... Yeah, yeah, Money's on the menu in my favourite band, and don't talk about quality, cause there's no groove let on the scene...

yes but you can see them in the high news on canal+ and the live is outside so all people can see it it will be at 19h the same day

Would love to be there like us all,but can't afford 2000 Euros! Just a thought, check out Fashion TV-just tuned in-shows all the strass and stars,so maybe Jay will be on the red carpet in his smoking! especially as the evening is for Cavalli who seems to be everywhere.You can tell who has been buttoxed! love Pippa.

The 2000 Euros is bullsh*t! It was just a joke a french fan did... It's just another private gig: they all got bills to pay, and please remember that we're in the middle of an extended european tour, & waiting for the asian tour too...

By the way, what Cyril wants to say is that they were due to perform at the french TV show "Le Grand Journal" (like they did in november 2010), but unfortunately, it seems that they cancelled the performance...

the 3 PICTURES OF THE PARTY NO MORE ON INTERNET AND NO VIDEO

Jamiroquai supports VIP. 1993-1999 area seems so far...

now you have some youtube video and 2 goods videos here http://tinyurl.com/5tdxvuq

There's always been private gig, & there'll always be private gig... It's easy money... The only difference is that back in 1993-1999, we didn't know about that (no internet)...

Ok, ok, but did they sell buffalo man to promote alcohol few years ago ? No... Now, it's a fact. And it's a shame, isn't it ?

Maybe I'm missing something... but I don't see the problem with them doing private gigs if they choose. Many major artists do that. So?

The only problem I see is that I was not there!! :-)

The "problem" is still the same : even if they had a lot of money, they need more and more... It's not exactly the lead message from the beginning (WYGL, Soul Education, Virtual Insanity...). And selling the band's identify, the Buffalo man, only to promote a Beer Company, sorry, but in my opinion, it's the worst thing I have seen from the guys (JAy, in fact) for a long time. Perhaps I'm an idealist, but I don't say something and do the oppposite.

If I remember correctly, the Jamiroquai 'brand' was used back in 1996 to help sell MiniDiscs in Japan. How did you feel about that at the time? Perhaps you need to shorten your idea of Jamiroquai's (non-existant) "commercial-free golden age" down to 1993-1995?

Do you agree with all these advertising ? Are all the lyrics written by jay not usefull ? Buffalo man and alcohol... What a message...

In this day and age with so few jobs around... I say fair play to them with private gigs, take the money and run!

Product endorsement is a different matter.. There may be the danger of being seen as "selling out" to corporate multinationals. How is the multinational going to manipulate their image and identity, with loss of control of sophisticated craftsmanship of the band?

Appreciate its difficult if that is part of the deal with Mercury records.. hands may be tied (possibly thats what happened with X Factor??)

Right, rant over!..must get back to revision...Freud's Penis Envy!!! Horneys Womb Envy!! (Have just had a Eureka moment...if these theories could be put to song!!!! 4 stages of Psychosexual Development!!! (O/A/P/L -genius!!!)

I agree with some comments : 1993 ---) "Fight the power" / 2011 ---) "Run for money". hum, hum...
