On Tuesday 16th June, Moby performs live at the Royal Festival Hall as part of free jazz pioneer Ornette Colemanâ€™s Meltdown festival.
This upcoming live show marks the first time Moby will play songs from his new album Wait For Me in the UK. Wait For Me will be the debut release on Mobyâ€™s own label Little Idiot on June 29th 2009.
Ornette Coleman is a neighbour of Mobyâ€™s, and both have supported and performed as part of Tibet Houseâ€™s international campaign for the support of Tibet. A long time admirer of Ornetteâ€™s work, Moby says, â€œI’m flattered and honoured to be asked by Ornette Coleman to play at his Meltdown festival. His approach to music, and the integrity with which he’s comported himself in all that he’s done, is a big inspiration to me. I can’t think of anyone alive who’s pushed things as far and as hard as Ornette Coleman.â€
