Woody Allen is on tour in Europe with his band, the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band. He just played one of the most prestigious venues on the planet – London’s Royal Albert Hall. Allen had played the venue a decade earlier, the last time he was in London for music.
Lots of posts on social media.

Allen did some speaking, which he doesn’t always do at shows. He made comments about Trump (“I didn’t vote for him”) and his love of the British comedy troupe the Goons.
Some guests in attendance, including comedian Adam Hills and Danny DeVito (who starred in Allen’s 2003 film Anything Else). The prestigious Royal Albert Hall appeared in one of Allen’s films made in London – 2006’s Scoop.
Allen and the band heads to Europe this next couple of weeks for more shows. You can find all the dates at Allen’s official site
I don’t know if its been revealed on this website yet, this website being the official definitive Woody Allen website, but according to Twilight Time, it looks like Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex will be release on bluray July 18th and September is being released September 19th on bluray!!!! I know Woody had some problems during the production of September, but I think the film turned out nicely. Unfortunately, Lloyd’s (Jack Warden’s character) cognitive musings on the cold hard indifference of the universe and humanity are right on the money.
I had to read that sentence about September several times! Thanks for the tip Sandy. Will write it up.
