We are incredibly sorry to report that due to difficulties with our original promoter in London we have been forced to change promoters, however the venue (Union Chapel) and day (April 30th) remain the same.
This means that any tickets previously purchased via SEE Tickets will not be charged a rebooking fee, however this does not apply to any others.
Please follow this link to do just that.
John Bukaty Studio / Gallery is a live painter who often comes to Colin’s show. Last night he painted this wonderful piece during the show at the House of Blues New Orleans and is now auctioning it online for charity!
Send him your bids if you’re interested in having this art in your home.
I was a guest on Greg Behrandt’s show at Largo last week, and Bill Burr played drums with me on Who Can It Be Now? — He was excellent too!
He just gave me a mention on his podcast, check it out below!
Thanks to all who tuned in to watch Colin perform on the Tonight show! It was a fantastic performance indeed!
Here is what Colin had to say about the evening:
“I’d like to thank Mr Fallon for having me on his show, and QuestLove and the Roots band, for making my dear old song sound so special. I loved it.”
Watch the performance of “Overkill” with The Roots here:
Watch the solo performance of “Next Year People” here:
Tune in next Wednesday, January 13, 2016, and see Colin perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon - he will be performing “Overkill” with The Roots!
I attended quite a posh function the other night, and I ran into an extremely talented writer/performer. I congratulated him on all his success. He was gracious and then said, and I’m not quoting here, well Colin if all else fails, we’ve always got Largo, because more then anything else, we’re quite good Largo acts.
I first met Flanagan around 1990, just as I’d been dropped by MCA Records. It was the end of my decade long affair with major record label hoopla. He’d just opened the old Largo on Fairfax. He asked me to play there, which of course I did, again and again. Rosy cheeked Jon Brion would come down and accompany me on whatever he felt like, and they, were magic nights. I saw so many brilliant performers over the years, Mitch Hedberg, Elliot Smith, Aimee Mann, Sarah Silverman to name a few, and watched the development of the genius of Andy Prieboy’s “White Trash Wins Lotto”.
My favorite part of playing the old Largo was when I’d finish playing, and Flanagan would walk me round the block to the back of the club, chatting nonsense the whole way.
Things change, Largo moved to La Cienega, and is now, if you’ve just come out of a coma, Largo at the Coronet. It’s still the same, because Flanagan still owns it. It’s Flanagan’s world, and I’m more than happy to drop into it from time to time. I’m there on December 13th, you should come, I’m quite good you know.

Kind words from NEO Music Scene who attended the show in Cleveland!
The church itself is a lovely venue, as Brian notes, “…a hundred year old Episcopalian church is quickly becoming the best place in Northeast Ohio to hear some of your favorite ’80s bands.”
Fantastic article from Isthmus!!
Colin performed deep within the Anastasia State Park. It was a scorching hot day but that didn’t stop Mr. Hay from captivating us with his voice and his stories.
