That Joe Payne has announced that he will release his first live album “By Name By Nature Tour” on June 25, 2021. The album will be availabale in several formats: CD | DVD | Blu-ray | Digital. However the DVD and Blu-ray versions will be a limited edition run (500 copies).
As might be anticipated Joe’s well received “By Name By Nature,” from last year, dominates the live performance. Filmed and recorded on 23rd October 2020 at The Crescent Theatre in Birmingham the set also includes songs Joe originally recorded with John Holden, Methexis and The Enid.
Joe comments: As I said to the audience on the night of the show: “I’ve honestly never been happier to be on stage!” 2020 came with its challenges, but by pulling off this ambitious production despite the limitations, we showed the world just how important our craft is to us. For that very reason, watching this show is like an emotional roller coaster, as we remember how much we’ve missed live music over the last year.
Spellbinding moments to look out for include me duetting with my Love (Not the Same) partner Ms Amy Birks who appears, not in person, but instead as a five-meter-tall video illusion; an effective last-minute innovation as she was unable to attend the show as planned due to long-covid. I also join digital back-up dancers in boyband-esque routines, dodge giant flying fists, and appear to control the weather as I take the audience through millennial topics such as cyberbullying, mental health, and the current climate crisis.”
