About Amsterdam

'A reminder of how good this band really is' - Liverpool Echo
 
Amsterdam take to the road in November for their first headline tour in over two years.
 
2008 has been a good year for the Liverpool six piece. The band duetted with old friend and collaborator, Elvis Costello, covering The Searchers hit ‘Don't Throw Your Love Away,' as part of the EMI released Liverpool Number 1's album and performed the song to a packed out 10,000 strong crowd, at the new Liverpool Echo Arena.

Amsterdam's second album 'Arm in Arm' was released in March this year. Opening track 'Home' was a favourite on BBC Radio 2 and Amsterdam have recorded no less than four live sessions for the Janice Long show.   
 
The album includes a beautiful contribution from celebrated Irish folk singer Christy Moore, who is due to release his own version of the Amsterdam classic (and John Peels second favourite ever song) ‘Does This Train Stop On Merseyside?'
 
Incidentally, Amsterdam frontman and avid Tranmere Rovers fan, Ian Prowse, was taken out to the now legendary 2005 European Champions League final in Istanbul by Liverpool Football club to sing the song to the fans before the game!
 
Amsterdam provided Glastonbury ‘08 with one of the best performances of the festival (and probably the best show of the bands career according to Ian).

"This is our first headline tour in over two years so it's gonna be full on. Expect joy, tears, anger, laughter and passion with songs from our back catalogue and I'm sure we'll throw in a few songs from my previous band Pele" says Ian.
 
Amsterdam are:

Ian Prowse vocals and guitar
Johnny Barlow guitar
Paul Hagan bass
