No jacket required at Millennium Airport Hotel
Andrew James ‘The Easy Lover’, to perform a Phil Collins tribute at Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai
Fans of rock legend Phil Collins, can leave their jackets at home, on Thursday 27th March, when the ‘Easy Lover’, Andrew James, who with more than 20 years’ showbiz experience, will take the stage at the Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai.
In tribute, James’ realistic rendition will cover some of Phil Collins’ greatest hits from the 80’s and 90’s including the atmospheric ‘In The Air Tonight’, the upbeat ‘Sussudio’, keyboard dominated ballad, ‘Against All The Odds’ to his politically driven statements in ‘Another Day in Paradise’ plus some of his massive hits with Genesis.
James was once described in the renowned 'Stage' Newspaper review as having ".... cloned all the mannerisms of the former Genesis drummer." and also that "The texture and timbre of his voice also lends itself to a great vocal impression too."
“Those of us who grew up with Phil Collins will always relate to his lyrics, while others may have just enjoyed listening to him. However together we will all no doubt reminisce about the summer of 1985 when ‘No Jacket Required’ was released and music went digital, you could actually buy albums on CD instead of an LP,” said Simon Moore, General manager, Millennium Airport Hotel Dubai.
The show will take place al fresco, on the hotel’s recently extended terrace, which can host up to a 1,000 person and guests are in for more than just a musical treat with the witty James presenting a few excerpts of Phil Collins’ rebellious humour as well as various costume changes, to suit the mood.
Phil Collins joined British rock ban Genesis in 1970 as a drummer and became lead vocalist in 1975 after the departure of Peter Gabriel. He launched his highly successful solo career in 1981, drawing on experiences in his own personal life and his distinctive drum sound. His musical achievements are legendary, he’s a singer, a song writer and belongs to a very select group having sold over 150million records worldwide.
James has been performing his tribute to Phil Collins since 2006 and brings a wealth of talent and multiple experiences to every performance. James has performed live at a variety of entertainment venues across the UK.
