JAMES have announced a massive December arena tour to round off a very successful year.
The band have also started work on their next album, working once again with Brian Eno, who produced 1993’s ‘Laid’. The forthcoming new LP, which is as-yet untitled, is due out early in 1999. This year the band notched up their first Number One with their ‘Best Of’ album, which has now sold 500,000 copies. The new album will be the follow up to last year’s ‘Whiplash’ which went Top Ten.
James play Hereford Leisure Centre (December 4), Birmingham NEG (5), Plymouth Pavilions (7), Newport Centre (8), Brighton Centre (9), London Wembley Arena (11), Manchester Evening News Arena (formerly NYNEX) (12) and Glasgow SECC (14). Support has yet to be confirmed. For tickets call the NME 24-hour ticketline on 0870-1212 500
