Having spent part of 2014 as a member of Hole frontwoman Courtney Love‘s touring band, the very prolific Ginger Wildheart has confirmed details of his 50th birthday shindig, to take place at London, Kentish Town HMV Forum on 17th December 2014. The venue was the scene of The Wildhearts first London headline show as an album band twenty years ago, the very same gig where Ginger wore a white tuxedo in honour of his mother’s birthday, and the video for ‘Suckerpunch’ was filmed – obviously a venue close to the Geordie in Wonderland’s heart!
One of the most successful crowd-funded artists of all time, Ginger will be playing hits from his many projects, including the Wildhearts, his solo albums and Silver Ginger 5 and will be joined by many (as yet unannounced) guest appearances.
In addition, Ginger has also announced that on 2nd February 2015, he will be releasing a brand new song, co-written with Miss Love, ‘Honoured‘, a live version of which is has been released on Youtube, and can be viewed below:
And, as if that isn’t enough, Ginger has a new online fanclub, and the single is currently available through Ginger’s new multimedia fan site GASS (Ginger • Associated • Secret • Society) and was released on itunes on the 1st December 2014.
