The tour will see vocalist Jay Kay and crew tearing through a mega-mix of hits past and present, including DYNAMITE lead single "Feels Just Like It Should" and new tracks "Seven Days in Sunny June" and the album's explosive title track. The band will also be performing on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on November 7th and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on November 11th.
DYNAMITE, co-produced by Kay and Mike Spencer, is Jamiroquai's sixth album and comes four years after the release of multi-platinum seller A Funk Odyssey. Urb gave the album four stars and wrote, "Loaded with thumping dance anthems, Dynamite explodes with hot beats and good feelings." Filter praised the disc for its "futuristic, funkadelic sounds," Performing Songwriter lauded the album for being "contagious to the ears and the feet," and BPM called the record "an album radiant enough to stand the test of time."
Since Jay Kay's emergence from London's acid jazz underworld in 1992, Jamiroquai has sold more than 20 million albums, racked up a Grammy and five MTV Awards, recorded a handful of top ten hits, toured the planet several times over and garnered international acclaim. Jamiroquai's impact on both music and pop culture continues to grow, as evidenced by the recent inclusion of 1999's No. 1 dance hit, "Canned Heat," in the mega-popular cult hit, Napoleon Dynamite. The scene in which the film's star, Jon Heder, dances to the song recently won an MTV Movie Award for "Best Action Sequence."
