If you can't make the Manchester date, Mr Brown is also making two further appearances:-

30th June at the Glasgow Apollo


2nd July at the Hammersmith Apollo, London

(although according to HIS website he's giving a private show in NY that night)

Whilst I welcome the appearance of James Brown in our fair city of Manchester, it doesnt entirely square with the Detroit theme given that he was born in South Carolina, grew up in Augusta, Georgia while King records were based in Cincinatti, Ohio.

Town full of bloody pedants... Seriously though, this looks a fantastic do.
