Miles Kane went home to Liverpool to play the bulk of his new album ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’ at the Jack Daniel’s JD Roots show in Liverpool last night (May 16) as part of Britain’s Best Small Venues campaign in association with Jack Daniel’s JD Roots
He debuted seven all-new songs at the Zanzibar venue, telling the crowd, “you’re gonna get it!”
Famous faces in the crowd included Peter Crouch, his wife Abby Clancy, producer Ian Broudie and former Coral man Bill Ryder-Jones.
Jack Daniel’s JD Roots takes your favourite bands back to where it all began. Miles played his second-ever gig at Zanzibar, as part of the Little Flames.
Earlier in the day, Miles had played a surprise acoustic show across the road at the Heebie Jeebies bar.
At the end he told the crowd it had been “the proudest day of my fucking life, Liverpool,” prompting a stage invasion.
“That was the best gig I’ve ever played,” Miles told NME afterwards, “it was amazing. The stage invasion at the end, there was one girl at first, and then another both snogging me, then loads more onstage.”
The next Jack Daniel’s JD Roots show is Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs at London’s Shacklewell Arms on June 6. For more details visit nme.com/small venues.
