Unfortunately I have it that there are no current plans for London yet this year.I hope I am wrong and things change.Otherwise just be forewarned and maybe consider the definite Paris show?
I know we're not quite up to the point where last year's London show was announced yet and maybe we'll get good news but as of now,nothing.Bit strange really as last year was a big success in my view.Having said that, Paris is always gonna be that bit more special in my book.

Do not give up hope for the London show yet, keep your fingers crossed. It was not announced last year until the 22 May. Shepherdss Bush is already booked up for the Sunday of the Wimbledon final but he may play another venue or another date. If nothing is announced at the beginning of June I will then think he will not play in London this year.

I refer to last years comment by Jimmy at the SBE, "see you same time next year"
I still have faith he will do London..

Do you still have faith now? I am now beginning to lose faith and now believe Jimmy says the first thing that comes into his head. See you same time next year surely tickets would have been released by now. How long do we have to wait or do we give up. Wanting to go away for the first week or second week in July but dare not book anything incase dates for London are released. What does everyone think - will he play London this year. Does anyone have any inside info?

I think the London show last year spoiled his Wimbledon weekend. He had to rush to the show and probably missed the parties. Rethink of the date perhaps?

No London show this year - must have been a promise made in the heat of the moment (but what a fab night it was!)

We'll have to all hook up in Paris instead...

Yes think that will be why he is not coming to the UK. He will want to be around for the opening of the new hotel. See you all in Paris in September.

Don't look like he's doing London in July this year :( But he does have a 3 week window after the Paris show, so maybe thats when he'll do the London show...Fingers Crossed

I've been wondering the same as Derek, maybe he'll add it to Paris. If we're having a late summer this year (and we sure aren't having an early one) then maybe that won't be so bad.

From info I have received unfortunately there will be no London show at all this year. We will just have to make do with the one Europe show in Paris. Maybe London next year we can hope.

I'm going to be in Paris again this year...sad thing is I can fly to Paris and stay the night cheaper than train etc. to London... :roll:

I'm p*** off a bit as I just got back from the Gulf Coast of Florida/Alabama, got tickets for Jimmy's free show 1st July but show was postponed until the 11th, missed out on his impromptu gig at Lulu's on the 30th...bugger!!!

I believe he was in London on July 4th - sitting in the crowd at Wimbledon. Any chance now he will still add a London concert onto Paris trip?
