I think that's a great title for a book! I was impressed. Did he come up with that on his own? Or was that Carrie's idea? Oh, I'm so bad.


And I feel special that he feels the US has the best wings. At least we're good for something, eh?

He needed to have a personal project to work on during his spare time...

Authentic American chicken wings would be a great addition on La Vache Restaurant's menu in Verbier.

James Blunt is eating a lot of chicken wings. From the acoustic performance at 100.7 Star, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 26/09/2017

As hot as possible... but they burn on the way in and on the way out. Ouch!

Ed Sheeran said that James and him ate more than 1000 chicken wings during the North American Tour! That's a lot of fire!

... "Thanks to everyone who's come to the shows so far, and thank you to James Blunt for being a fantastic opening act. Me and him at the beginning of the tour said we would eat 1000 wings by the end and by golly we did."

A bit of 'behind the scenes' stories here. These guys are going to burn seriously their guts one day. Ouch!

From John Garrison's tour diary. James was supporting Ed Sheeran on the North American Tour during Summer 2017.

DAY 10 | THE RETURN TO CHICKEN WING MECCA
We wake up in Buffalo, NY, and James is very excited, as itís the centre of the universe for his favourite food, chicken wings. Iím a part-time veggie these days, thanks to my son going vegetarian last year having watched a BBC documentary about porcupinesÖ.but thatís another storyÖ. Anyway, in Buffalo, I am not veggie. No one is. Jamesís culinary obsession has rubbed off on all of us over the years. In 2011, on a promo trip through America, we went to a place here called Duffs and have forever been trying to find an establishment that can compare, but to no avail. In fact, nothing comes close. James actually has the Duffs menu in his jacket pocket at all times. I promise you, thatís true. He is possessed! Heís even thinking about writing a book called WOW (Wings Of The World), which will be about chicken wings with ratings that heís gathered over the years.

So today we return to Duffs and we get word that Ed wants to come as James has gone on about how good it is for so long. The Blunt band wait outside the venue for the mini bus we have booked (we are 15 mins early as James is seriously excited). Suddenly 2 big mini vans arrive and a huge posse consisting of Ed, his producer and a lot if his crew. We get to Duffs and they have no idea whatís going on. Itís only a small place and we should have booked! Having 2 superstars in the dining party always helps when a table is needed. They squeeze us in and James orders for everyone. Regular hot, suicide hot and DEATH are the strength of spice ordered.

Suicide has a good kick and floors the majority of the party. The remaining few get a Blunty pep talk about how to tackle the infamous DEATH sauce. Only use 1 hand. Never use said chosen hand to go to the toilet or rub eyes or touch anywhere sensitive on your body (or anyone elseís for that matter)Ö our guitarist Benny (Ben Castle) starts screaming in the middle of the restaurant and I start to lose my vision. God knows whatís in that sauce, but we love it. We get back to the venue and prepare for the gig, which is a weird one. The audience are very much here for Ed and we feel a bit in the way. It could, of course, be that all our senses have been numbed by Duffs! We board the bus and head to Philadelphia while watching Kill Bill with a few beers. I guess the gigs canít all be great.
