Jamie Lidell Preps North American Tour

Jamie Lidell is back. The U.K.-based musician and crooner extraordinaire will embark on a North American tour at the end of May to support his forthcoming album, Jim. Lidell will be joined onstage by a full band that includes saxophone and keyboards, in addition to guitars, bass, and drums. As the story goes, while wearing a trench coat, he set a speaker on fire at the 2006 Bumbershoot festival in Seattle (on accident, but whatever). Let's hope for similar antics this time around.

Jim is out April 29 on Warp.
