More information about Wendy James tickets

WENDY JAMES, born in London, is an English singersongwriter notable for her work with band Transvision Vamp, collaboration with Elvis Costello, Solo work and further collaboration with James Williamson from Iggy & the Stooges, Lenny Kaye from The Patti Smith Group and James Sclavunos from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

She is most recognised as the front-woman of iconic 80s alternative rock band Transvision Vamp, which enjoyed chart success in the late 1980s with a string of hits including Baby I Don’t Care, I Want Your Love and Revolution Baby.

During the span of Transvision Vamp, Wendy was made a cover-star of many magazines all over the world and photographed by everyone from David Bailey for Tatler Magazine and Jurgen Teller for The Face Magazine and I-D Magazine. She became a household name the world over, made numerous television appearances and riots in Australia happened when Transvision Vamp toured there, with streets blocked off and police on horses having to hold back the crowds.

Her sexually charged and rebellious image won her a huge following of devoted fans, including Miley Cyrus who stated she loved James’ look and sound.

Following the band’s split in 1991, James went on to collaborate with a number of music legends including Elvis Costello who wrote a full album’s worth of material for her, which formed her first solo album “Now Ain’t the Time for Your Tears” in 1993.

Her 2nd solo album “The Price of the Ticket” was released in 2016 and her band at the time comprised of rock royalty such as James Williamson (Iggy and the Stooges), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith) and James Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Badseeds, Sonic Youth and the Cramps)

A new album will be, available, released just prior to this tour.
Armed with a catalogue of new material, the audacious vamp will be rocking the venue with a full live band where she will sing a host of old favourites as well as tracks from her latest and previous solo albums.

50s psychedelic punk, anyone? Yes. Go Go Cult sound like being in a 1950s motorbike gang in America, pushed to the musical limits from the constant threat of nuclear holocaust.” Tim Hooper for BBC Introducing
