Stuart Price, aka Jacques Lu Cont, is forced to relinquish Zoot Woman live dates...

MADONNA has recruited ZOOT WOMAN and LES RHYTHMES DIGITALES founder STUART PRICE to play live on her forthcoming world tour, NME.COM can reveal.

Price, aka Jacques Lu Cont, is now in Los Angeles, rehearsing 13 hours a day with
Madonna's group, after being recommended to the queen of pop by French producer Mirwais, who worked on her last album 'Music'.

William Orbit is also said to be involved in the new Madonna live shows, scheduled to take place across the world this summer.

Madonna has confirmed a London gig at Earl's Court Arena on July 4.

The band's label boss Mark Jones told NME.COM: "It's incredible, I'm very very proud of Stuart. It's very unfortunate that it clashes with the initial string of Zoot Woman live dates but there was never any doubt that he shouldn't do the Madonna tour.

"We're going to start auditioning for a live replacement. If anybody's is switched on, and likes a bit of eyeliner, then get in touch."

Aspiring replacements can contact Wall Of Sound via email on general@wallofsound.uk.com.
