In our ongoing effort to promote Jamiroquai in America, we
have a special treat exclusively for our American Twitter followers. We’ve

concert at the Chicago Riviera Theater, and we’d like to share a few copies –
while supplies last!
Don't worry - we transferred it to DVD!
You will receive a DVD copy of the original VHS tape. Audio
quality is superb, video quality is what you would expect from a VHS to DVD
transfer. These are no-frills copies, but the music is what matters, as you
will hear! Pro-shot and edited, this DVD contains six songs:
Emergency on Planet Earth
Return of the Space Cowboy
Recording date: January 29, 1997
Running time: 29:48
Quantities are limited.
How to obtain a copy:

That’s it! No strings attached.
Thank you for understanding that this promotion is only
available to our American Twitter followers. Previous giveaways have been open
to followers in other countries.
Another treasure from from the vault! Rare footage of Jamiroquai interviewed by John Norris on the red carpet before 1997's MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Hall, NYC. Derrick, we hope you are still doing really wicked!
Unearthed: A rare video clip of Jamiroquai interviewed by Chris Connelly backstage at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards, held at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Crowded into a tiny press room, the boys are on top of the world after being nominated for 10 VMAs and winning four awards, including Breakthrough Video of the Year. Jay said it felt "pretty damn good" to win the awards in the US, where they were not very well-known.
