James tickets
Rising to prominence in the late eighties and becoming established in the early nineties on the wave of the Manchester music scene; James are amongst the world’s most premier indie bands. Having a reputation for fiery live shows after touring for over 25 years, headlining some of the biggest festivals and best venues around the world, they have a well-earned reputation for being an essential live act.

James reached international stardom with such massive hit singles as Laid, Sit Down and She’s A Star. They have amassed seven amazing Top 10 albums and have gone on to sell over 25 million albums worldwide.

Their band members include drummer David Baynton-Power, trumpet plus percussion by Andy Diagram, Larry Gott playing lead guitar with rhythm guitar by Saul Davies and Jim Glennie on bass. They are now reunited with enigmatic singer Tim Booth to once again enrapture audiences.

They have announced two extra special headline performances for 2017. See them play in their hometown of Manchester at the Sounds Of The City event at Castlefield Bowl on Friday 7th of July. They then perform in Newcastle as part of the Live From Times Square concerts on Saturday 29th of July.

Working under various names, they began to draw crowds whilst playing under the name Model Team and then Tribal Outlook. Signing to infamous Manchester label Factory Records with Tony Wilson, they emerged in the early nineties as ‘the next big thing’ and were glorified by the music press such as NME.

Their string of excellent single hits were brought out by cult label Rough Trade and saw them rise from indie darlings to the predicted mainstream success. Their legacy endures with legions of loyal fans who continue to sell out their shoes to this day.
