This December will be the last chance to catch the current line-up of James perform together in a nationwide tour. After 10 studio albums, a million-selling Best Of and 20 Top Forty singles in the UK as well as considerable success in the USA, James can rightly claim to be one of Britain’s most successful bands.
Although this will be Tim Booth’s final tour with the band, the remaining members of James will continue making music together, and will make an announcement regarding their plans at a later date.
Statement from Tim Booth:
“Dear Friends, enemies and anyone else who is listening. After 11 albums it’s time for me to leave James. The timing feels right – 20 years and still peaking. I am deeply proud of just about everything we’ve done. The gigs at Christmas will (I believe) be my last with James and will enable us to have a massive farewell celebration. I’d like to thank my co-conspirators in James for the great adventure. I am looking to act, teach trance dance, write and make some music next year.”
James’ arena tour will commence on Sunday 2nd December at the Brighton Centre. Support will come from acclaimed Mercury Music Prize nominee, Turin Brakes. In addition the band have invited former members Andy Diagram and Larry Gott to appear with them on selected dates.
