Never the Bride will perform at The Tunnels on Saturday 10th March
“You can take the girl out of Bristol but you’ll never take Bristol out of this girl!” laughs
the vivacious NIKKI LAMBORN as she looks forward to a hometown return with her
band NEVER THE BRIDE for an electric debut show at THE TUNNELS BRISTOL.
In 1985 Nikki played the role of Persian Moll in the musical ‘Stinkfoot: A Comic Opera’ at The
Old Profanity Showboat, written and directed by the infamous Vivien Stanshall (Bonzo Dog Doo
Da Band) and his wife, author Ki Longfellow-Stanshall.
Nikki spent many a year performing venues such as The Granary and The Bristol Bridge Inn
in their days but has gone on to record and perform around the world with some of the biggest
names in music including Alice Cooper, Peter Frampton, Elton John, Chaka Khan, Robert Plant,
Paul Rodgers, Mark Ronson, The Pretenders, Procol Harum and The Who. On one occasion at
The Royal Albert Hall, Roger Daltrey held up Nikki’s hand and shouted out, “Nikki Lamborn has
the best female rock voice since Janis Joplin and I know what I’m talking about, I knew Janis.”
Never The Bride’s “The Living Tree” was a hit for Dame Shirley Bassey. Nikki and songwriting
partner Catherine Feeney masterminded Bassey’s memorable Glastonbury appearance and
produced her album “Get The Party Started” which reached number 6 in the UK Album Chart.
Most recently, Nikki duetted with Bryan Adams at his Birmingham concert in December 2011.
2012 is to be an exciting year with UK, European and US dates already on the tour schedule.
