ON the Costa del Sol he has long been known – quite rightly – as the ‘Prat with the Hat’ after he cancelled a concert six years ago leaving thousands of fans disappointed.
But now Space Cowboy superstar Jamiroquai has returned to make amends by playing a secret gig at Malaga’s Auditorio Municipal last week.
Compensating the thousands of fans who lost out in 2005 when promoters Seabreeze failed to stump up his fee, he gave a two hour show promoting his new album Rock Dust Light Star.
Known for hit singles such as Virtual Insanity and Space Cowboy the group dazzled fans with their unique sound which mixes funk, acid jazz and rock.
The previous day the band played in Barcelona despite rumours that Jay Kay was suffering from a hernia.
think that the blame was that of the promotor Seabreeze… not the artist.. as he was in town ready to do the show…. see News
