Jarvis Cocker to join 'entertainist' Gonzales onstage at London gig

Specials guests lined up for Gonzales' residency in the capital

Jarvis Cocker to join 'entertainist' Gonzales onstage at London gig
Jarvis Cocker has been confirmed to appear alongside self-proclaimed 'entertainist' Gonzales at the first gig of his forthcoming London residency in November.

Gonzales is scheduled to play four dates of his Piano Talk Show at London's Pigalle club, taking place each Wednesday this November.

Cocker will appear at Gonzales' first Pigalle gig on November 4, and more guests are promised for the other dates of the residency, which take place on November 11, 18 and 25.

The Paris-based musician, who has previously collaborated with Peaches, is currently writing songs with Cocker for forthcoming comedy film 'Get Him To The Greek', which stars Russell Brand.

He also recently entered the Guinness World Records for completing the longest solo-artist performance by playing the piano for 27 hours, 3 minutes and 44 seconds without stopping. A four-CD set of material from the record-breaking feat was released in July, including impromptu covers of Survivor's 'Eye Of The Tiger' and George Michael's 'Faith'.

In September, Gonzales challenged Andrew WK to a 'piano-off' after learning the US singer was releasing an album of solo piano songs called '55 Cadillac'.

Watch video footage of Gonzales challenging Andrew WK to the duel below.
