James and SKOM Director Joe Berlinger Team Up Again!

No rest for the wicked here as James spent a few of his days between tour dates in front of the camera once again for Academy-award nominated director Joe Berlinger as he filmed scenes for Joe's upcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. The movie follows the relationship between notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, played by Zac Efron, and his longtime girlfriend, played by Lily Collins, who at the time, had no knowledge of the crimes.

February 5th Show In Copenhagen Postponed

The February 7th show is ON! See you there!

We’re very disappointed to have to share with you that unfortunately as Saturday has progressed, James’ health, and specifically his throat, is not improving and he is under strict doctor’s orders to not sing one single note. So sadly we have to report that we will be postponing tomorrow’s show at the Royal Arena until September 2, 2017.

Français Pour Une Nuit

On July 7th of this year we were honored to perform at Arenes de Nimes, the historic Roman amphitheatre in Nimes, France, easily one of the most spectacular venues in the world. We thought it would be a memorable night, so we asked our friends in France to bring along a film crew to document the festivities. The result is "Francais Pour Une Nuit" (translation: "French For One Night"), the DVD of the evening including the full show, interviews with us, and five videos shot by YOU, our buddies in the audience. All this and more will be available starting November 23, 2009!

"Francais Pour Une Nuit" was extra special for us because not only was it filmed in France, but ALL aspects of the project are French as the show was filmed, recorded, and edited with French camera and recording crews, the artwork on the package and special box set (more on that in a minute!) were created by a…

June 4 post 3

"Oh shit there is a LOT of people out there", was the first thing I heard while boys were walking on stage. I heard we had 80 000, and I also hear 100,000 people at tonight's Rock In Rio Festival, in Lisbon, Portugal. "When Paul Mcartney played, it was only half full, but now it is fucking packed", was another comment I heard. One thing I know, is that it was 2 1/2 hours of ROAR, the noise would not stop.The show finished sometime after 3:00am this morning, it is now 5:30am and we are jumping on a plane to Donington....Speak soon...MOT
