Wow Snoop Dogg grinning But I'd rather other artists to collaborate with the band, anyway, the show was brilliant but quite short. Love to hear the new additions on the setlist Main Vein and Use The Force, plus an extra new chorus in Cosmic Girl.


Did you see Jay giving a front row girl a hat replica??

Yes, Andy did record it. I am sure he agrees that we share it here:


The download is about 2.6 Gb though! And it starts a bit earlier.

I have just watched the performance of Dr Buzz again. And I must say, actually a bit messed up, or is it just me? sweat_smile
Jay is quite a bit out of tune in the first half. What a pity. I think I remember that it was similar in the Roundhouse last year. I remember that this was the song I was disappointed of a bit.
The band nailed it though. They really know what they are doing. They are on point even when Jay and Snoop seem to be a bit unstructured. I guess they didn't have a proper rehearsal together with Snoop, just the bit we saw on instagram. So, Snoop was really relaxed (I wonder why? laughing ) ... and it was funny to see him improvising. Some parts were really cool I think. Some seemed to be a bit on the fly.
But it is cool. I just wish we would get a really good live version of Dr Buzz one day. Where Jay is singing accurately and the band doing a proper jamming. Maybe next time! Here is hope.

Do you agree or am I too picky? blush

Thanks for the download link!
In overall the gig is great...Jay (and the whole band) sounds really cool, and yes...Dr. Buzz with SnoopDog was from marketing perspect a great idea, but as a musical cooperation/performance I would categorize it as "forgetable".

BTW they're really running against the clock...short version of SpaceCowboy, almost no breaks between the songs etc., but that's how it is, when they're doing a festival gig.

I really loved the performances of Main Vein and Use The Force! Very good versions!!
And even Cosmic Girl (which we have heard so many times and which is for me more a filler than a highlight) had an outstanding vibe this time! Same with Cloud 9 which had the perfect groove! I love it, when Paul plays the bass and not the keys in this one!

Bring that girl who got the spiky hat here!! I want her to be part of our community! AFOhat

With all the restrictions they had, they did pretty good. It was a great selection of old and new songs, an array of styles for them to showcase their talent.
Dr Buzz was really the only song where Snoop Dogg could've done that. With a little more preparation it could've been really really good, but as it stands, it was ok. I enjoyed it just for the novelty of them having a guest, which is something it almost never happens! It is good exposition for the band in the US too. I think this is the best they've sounded without a brass section. Main Vein and Use The Force are always a welcome addition.

I am just hearing the audio of Dr. Buzz for the first time and yes, Jay was off. I was surprised. He seems to be such a perfectionist in every part of his music.

I think the whole gig was fantastic. The band was tight and Jay is singing better than he did the past 2 or 3 tours.


Yes he was a little off in Dr Buzz at the beginning. It reminds me how difficult was White Knuckle Ride was to him during the RDLS tour, now he seems to have improved a lot since then.


I think the collaboration with Snoop was great. Its been a long time since Jamiroquai played with any other artist and Snoop is really a legend. It might even open the doors for future collaborations with other artist!


The only thing I'm kind of sad for is the state of Jay. He was known for dancing and jumping all over the stage and now he is fatty and stays doing that micro-dancing in the place the whole show like if he was even older, It feels kind of a miss opportunity as Jay could have trained for a proper return to the US. Of course the band sounds great but Jamiroquai gigs were also about the overall show, and some fans might have been left waiting for a little bit more of that.

Don't get me wrong, I know Jay is a grown man now, but he was much better prepared at the beginning of the tour, just look at the videos from Paris, before the back accident Jay was able to dance much more :/

I don't know, considering his age and his operation last year, I think he still has glimpses of his old self. Look Use The Force from Coachella, at times he was moving like it was '97, no kidding.
