Funk group Cameo will be making a highly-anticipated return to the UK this autumn with a rare series of intimate gigs at the Jazz Cafe.
Led by the charismatic Larry Blackmon, the chart-topping band are considered to be pioneers of their era and will be performing what could be their only shows at the prestigious Camden venue.
Cameo first formed in 1974 as New York City Players, before later adopting the name Cameo and developing a more electronic sound by 1983.
A few years later, this new direction led to landmark hits such as Word Up, Single Life and Candy, all brilliant offerings which have been honoured in everything from movie soundtracks, pop covers and hip-hop samples, to video games, wedding playlists and weekend karaoke, a further testament to their legendary status.
With 17 million albums sold, they remain one of the most innovative outfits of our time ' and their performances today are nothing short of exhilarating.
Delivered with plenty of high energy, their timeless classics will make you dance, sing and reminisce on a bygone era, thanks to their timeless sound and a legacy that continues to live on.
October 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th
