    Willie Nile & Full American Band Willie Nile & Full American BandOnly London show!Scroll down the page for ticket buying optionsWillie Nile and his band hail from New Jersey in the USA. His fans include Bruce Springsteen, with whom hes guested onstage on multiple occasions, and Pete Townshend, who personally requested Willie as the opening act on the Whos U.S. tour. Other avowed Nile admirers past and present, include Bono, Lou Reed, Paul Simon, Ian Hunter, Graham Parker, Jim Jarmusch, Adam Duritz, Little Steven, and Lucinda Williams, who once remarked: Willie Nile is a great artist. If there was any justice in this world, Id be opening up for him instead of him for me.Born into a large Irish Catholic family in Buffalo, N.Y., Willie began writing songs in his early teens. After graduating from the University at Buffalo with a B.A. in philosophy, he moved to Manhattans Greenwich Village. During his first winter there, he was sidelined by pneumonia. While spending nearly a year recuperating, he concentrated on honing his songwriting skills. After his recovery, Nile became a popular fixture in the Villages folk clubs, while drawing inspiration from the emerging downtown punk scene.His budding career received a major boost from a high-profileNew York Timespiece by legendary critic Robert Palmer. The local buzz stoked by that story led to a deal with Arista Records, for which Nile recordedWillie Nile and Golden Down. Those albums won a sizable audience and generated reams of press raves. But his progress ground to a halt after legal disputes with his label caused him to walk away from the music business, beginning a recording hiatus that lasted for nearly a decade.Although he continued to write new material, Nile maintained a discreet distance from the spotlight until 1991, when he reemerged with a new deal with Columbia Records and a new album,Places I Have Never Been, which restored the artist to prominence with fans and critics In 1998, Nile lent his unmistakable voice to the all-star concept albumLargo.At the dawn of the 21st Century, NilesBeautiful Wreck of the Worldmarked the start of an exciting new chapter in his career, one in which hes wholeheartedly embraced his new indie status to create and distribute his music free from corporate agendas. His new approach yielded substantial results, with the effort chosen as one of the years Top Ten Albums by critics atBillboard,The Village VoiceandStereo Review. During this period, Nile substantially stepped up his touring activities in Europe, where hes since built a large and enthusiastic following.The well-receivedStreets of New York, from 2006, ushered in the most productive and prolific period of Niles musical life. The CDLive From the Turning Pointand the DVDLive From the Streets of New Yorkfollowed, as did another widely celebrated studio album,House of a Thousand Guitars, and The Innocent Ones, which won some of the most enthusiastic notices Niles ever received: The BBC called it stunning . . . THE rock n roll album of the year, andRolling Stoneincluded it in its Top Ten Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011.USA Todaynamed the albums anthemic lead track One Guitar as the number-one song in the nation.Willie Nile and Bruce Stringsteen perform On Guitar in New York last year:His just released latest album, World War Willie debuted in five separate Billboard charts.
