It's great news, they were discussing this when I was with them, looks like they took them up on the offer. Unfortunately I was bound to silence!

"LIVERPOOL Sound City is holding a special music and business showcase in New York which will be headlined by the first US gig in 20 years by The La's.

The Daily Post can reveal that New York Sound City, to be held in March, will see Mersey musicians and creative businesses take over a Manhattan hotel on March 12.

That will include the first US gig in two decades by legendary Liverpool band The La’s, best known for There She Goes, while other Merseyside performers will soon be added to the bill."

when I was with them...it seemed to be the two piece set up still. There was talk of playing new tunes by then though. They've got time.

I've got in touch with the appropriate folk so, hopefully if it all works out I'll be in New York documenting it.

Liverpool Echo have a brief blurb on it too:

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/liverpoo ... -29832553/

LEGENDARY band The La’s will perform in the USA for the first time in two decades as Liverpool Sound City makes its debut in New York.

The group, led by Lee Mavers and best known for 1990s anthem There She Goes, will headline the inaugural New York Sound City in March.

The event will see Mersey musicians and creative businesses take over a Manhattan hotel on March 12.

During the day, organisers will help Mersey firms win deals with American companies, while promoting Liverpool to potential investors.

That night, the showcase gig will feature The La’s and other as-yet-unnamed Merseyside performers.

Liverpool has long trade and cultural links with New York, which was John Lennon’s home for nine years.

Sound City director Dave Pichilingi said: “It will be the first La’s show in America for two decades and we will be looking to take two other bands out there from the region. It will be the best of the old and the new.

“From a business and a cultural perspective, Liverpool has a lot of connections with New York. There have got to be great opportunities there.”

Regeneration agency Liverpool Vision, which has this year redoubled its efforts to build trade links with the USA, believes the event will prove to New York’s creative and digital businesses that Liverpool is a great place to invest.

prices seem astronomical unfortunately with flights, accommodation and tickets, and there's only 100 tickets or so as well.

It needs to be done properly with a band, otherwise the new songs will sound like busks, no matter how tight and rehearsed, my interest lies in a four or five piece band, hell even a three piece with some skin beats.
