Living Colour Live

Friday, September 11, 2009

The New York-based rock group Living Colour rocketed to fame in 1988, after a CBGB audience member named Mick Jagger helped secure them a record deal. MTV airplay of the smash hit “Cult of Personality” helped put black rock musicians back in the spotlight. With the release of their first album in five years, "The Chair In The Doorway," Living Colour joins us to play live in our studio.

Feck. Didn't realise Living Colour were back in action. Unbelievable band. I'll never forget when I first heard "Type". Can't believe I missed them turing England though. Would gladly have trekked over to UK to see them. Any chance of an Irish gig?

Vivid is definitely the album that started, what would become, my life-long addiction to the drum set. I saw them in 2004 at Toad's Place in New Haven with some of my best friends from high-school and it was absolutely through the roof!
Can't wait to see them again at the Highline on 10/30.

Thanks for creating art that matters!

It's so good to see the band performing again. I saw them for free (An MTV sponsored tour) just before Vivid became huge and they were amazing. Love the new single! Hope to see them live again soon.
