Razorlight to perform intimate New York show

Borrell and co. will play only one US date this summer

Razorlight have been confirmed to perform a special show at New York’s Gramercy Theatre next month.

The show at the 700-capacity venue will be the band’s only US date this summer, although there are plans afoot for a full US tour in the autumn.

In addition to slots at Pinkpop, T In The Park, and the Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds festivals, the band will also perform at Al Gore’s Live Earth concert in London on July 7.

“I’m personally excited that we’re going to be a part of the Live Earth show,” frontman Johnny Borrell said in a statement. “I went to the cinema to see ’An Inconvenient Truth’ with my mates when it was released and I walked out afterwards thinking that I had to do something. When we got the call to join the bill for the London show, it was really a no-brainer.”

Razorlight play the Gramercy Theatre on May 1.
