the wendy james band on Thursday 26th August 2021
We’re delighted to bring the iconic WENDY JAMES to The Waterloo in Blackpool.
Most recognised as front-woman of iconic 80's alternative rock band TRANSVISION VAMP, Wendy enjoyed massive chart success with a string of hits including Baby I Don’t Care, I Want Your Love and Revolution Baby.
Her sexually charged and rebellious image has won Wendy a huge following of devoted fans, including Miley Cyrus, who loves James’ look and sound.
Following the split of Transvision Vamp, Wendy went on to collaborate with a number of music legends including Elvis Costello, with whom she wrote her first solo album “Now Ain’t the Time for Your Tears” in 1993.
Her second solo album “The Price of the Ticket” was released in 2016 and her band at the time comprised of rock royalty such as James Williamson (Iggy and the Stooges), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith) and James Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Badseeds, Sonic Youth and the Cramps).
Wendy's has just released her new album 'Queen High Straight'.
Armed with a catalogue of new material, the audacious vamp will be rocking The Waterloo with a full live band, where she will sing a host of old favourites as well as tracks from her latest and previous solo albums.
