Liverpool’s Jamie Webster has announced his biggest career news to date, confirming a homecoming show at the M&S Bank Arena on Saturday 19th November 2022. The announcement of the 11k capacity arena date follows a jubilant hometown gig at the Guild of Students, which preceded news that all three 2021 dates at the Liverpool Olympia in December had sold out. (You can listen to our podcast with Jamie on Spotify, Apple and YouTube.)
With his second album, ‘MOMENTS’ due for release on January 28th, Webster has also unveiled his third single of the year in the shape of ‘Davey Kane’. The new track is about the reform of the British criminal justice system, based on Jamie’s experience seeing friends fall into prison at a young age. It will be the opening track on the 2022 record!
Jamie commented: “With the high level of crime and corruption in government and business, why are the working-class people the only ones who have to live in the shadows of their previous and, in most cases, petty crimes? Prisons in the UK have a “lock them up and throw away the key” mentality with no real effort made to change people’s situations. Davey Kane being locked in a cold and grey cell does neither him nor society any favours once he gets on the outside.”
