first_imgTonight, Jamiroquai will perform their first U.S. show in thirteen years at the 19th annual Coachella in Indio, California (and it will be live streamed here). Ahead of the big performance, Jay Kay and company stopped by The Late Late Show With James Corden for a late-night national television guest spot on Thursday. Performing the title track from their 2017 release Automaton, the 4-minute performance dazzled the world with its electronic synth grooves and funkified dance moves.In addition to marking their first U.S. shows in more than a decade, Jamiroquai’s Coachella performances are the first of four total confirmed American shows this year. In between Coachella sets (April 13 & 20), Jay Kay and company will head to San Francisco to perform the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on April 17. On September 8, the band will head to New York City to perform the Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY. Additionally, Suwannee Hulaween recently revealed the dates for their 2018 festival with a short animated video and snuck in a massive hint pointing to Jamiroquai as their 2018 headliner. In the clip, the band’s familiar silhouette symbol appears in the corner of the frame, suggesting that Jamiroquai will be performing at the sixth annual event.So now that Jamiroquai is officially on American soil, it’s game on. Watch the mesmerizing video from last night’s television performance below:[Video: The Late Late Show With James Corden]It’s been over a year since Jamiroquai announced their triumphant return after spending years outside the spotlight. In March of 2017, the group released Automaton, a follow up to 2010’s Rock Dust Light Star marking the band’s eighth studio album. To complement their new album, the funk favorites embarked on a global tour, hitting Tokyo and Seoul in addition to major cities across Europe. However, North American cities were conspicuously left off of Jamiroquai’s 2017 comeback tour, leading many to hope that 2018 will see the group hitting the U.S. Here we are, with four shows ahead of us, and it feels damn good.last_img read more
