Sugarland’s The Incredible Machine hits the International shelves on Monday, February 7th. To celebrate the release of their “new” album over there, Jennifer Nettles & Kristian Bush headed to the U.K. and Ireland to help promote The Incredible Machine. While they are not playing any official concerts while over there right now, they seem to be keeping pretty busy! Check out what is going on with the duo:
We are in the U.K. and Ireland this week and next — surprise! — for a quick promo tour in support of The Incredible Machine, which hits overseas shelves February 7th! (Preorder it now, if you’d like.)
No “proper” shows scheduled, but we’ll be appearing TONIGHT on Ireland’s The Late Late Show, and next Friday, Feb. 11 on BBC’s Graham Norton Show — check local listings!
Yesterday was our first full day in London, and we spent it at the News of the World studios taping an acoustic performance for their online “XSessions” series, slated to appear this Sunday — we’ll bring you the link when it’s live.
We’re learning a lot about looking in the opposite direction when stepping off curbs, and there is much jockeying for position during taxi and van rides through the curving, narrow streets of that spectacular city so as to not end up facing backwards in the car. But motion sickness is no match for the sights whizzing by: Royal Albert Hall! Harrods! Big Ben! The Tower of London! Our ride to the airport at dusk was breathtaking, all those bridges and buildings lit up against the sky, ancient and modern architecture clustered together in a pile of “Ooh! What’s that??”
Bit of a delay last night getting to Dublin: high winds held the planes from reaching Heathrow, but our pilot did a masterful job landing in the gale. Today, water is blowing horizontally out of fountains, and Kristian’s a little worried about keeping his hat on in the gusts when we head out for The Late Late Show. Fingers crossed we make it to the pub later, as the craving for Guinness has reached epic levels.
