Currently recording the follow up to 2014’s widely acclaimed Trouble In Paradise, La Roux makes a rare live appearance on Tuesday May 10th. This show offers fans the opportunity to catch the Brit and Mercury-nominated star up-close-and-personal in the intimate confines of Under the Bridge.
This gig caps off a recent run of high profile shows at the venue, which included appearances from Lianne La Havas, Leon Bridges, Jack Garratt and Rodrigo y Gabriela.
During its short existence, Under the Bridge has established itself as one of the leading live music venues on the London circuit, having presented shows from some of the biggest acts in the world, won numerous industry awards, partnered with the likes of Channel 4, BBC Radio 2, Heart and XFM, hosted events for NME the MOBOs, the Classical BRITs and Q magazine and, perhaps most importantly, garnered the respect of the industry and built a reputation amongst bands and artists as one of the capital’s must-play venues.
Alan Tenenbaum, Creative Manager, Under the Bridge:
“We’ve enjoyed some incredible live performances at Under the Bridge over the last five years and I hope with these fifth anniversary concerts, and with the work we do at the venue in the future, that we can continue to make a positive, worthwhile contribution to the live music scene in the UK.”
Laura Hassler, Founder & Director – Musicians without Borders:
“Over the past sixteen years, Musicians without Borders has organized successful music projects in current and post conflict regions in the Balkans, the Middle East, Central Africa and the EU. We work closely with local musicians and organizations to build sustainable projects in response to local needs. We are delighted to be teaming up with Under the Bridge for this hugely exciting series of shows, which will provide much-needed financial support to the work we are doing around the world.”
