James Corden, the host of The Late Late Show, will be teaming up with Disclosure for the American Express Unstaged live-streaming concert. While the international recording duo will take the stage at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on September 29, Corden will be the executive producer of the show. The concert comes right after the release of Caracal, Disclosure’s newest album, and they will be performing songs from it live for the first time.
People who don’t have tickets to the concert can watch it live via the American Express Unstaged website or via their app due to an American Expresses partnership with Vimeo and Youtube. This partnership also means that fans will be able to access a variety of pre-show and in-concert digital extras, including videos of Disclosure telling their story and letting fans know what inspires them musically.
Excitement in the air
The combination of Corden and Disclosure is not only a winning moment for fans, but the artists themselves. Corden is a Tony award winning actor who took over the reins of The Late Late Show in the spring of 2015, and has been a hit with fans. But he has also appeared in Into the Woods, One Man, and Two Guvnors.
“We are so excited to be working with James Corden on this project,” said Howard and Guy Lawrence from Disclosure. “He’s so funny and creative and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the table for our ‘American Express Unstaged’ show. It’s so impressive to see how he’s made the transition to the entertainment industry in America; he’s doing an amazing job.”
Howard and Guy Lawrence are the brothers behind Disclosure’s electronic music, and their first album Settle, received a Grammy nod for Best Dance Album in 2014. “I’m excited to work with American Express and Disclosure to produce my first live music event,” said Corden.
“Howard and Guy are extremely talented individuals who have taken the world by storm with their music, and I am privileged to be able to create a memorable experience for their fans all over the world,” said Corden.
