Manchester favourites James have announced they are getting back together for a reunion tour later this year.
The indie rockers, who enjoyed massive hits such as ‘Sit Down’ and ‘Laid’, have been working on new material and have announced five comeback shows for April.
The band have announced the line-up will consist of the same six members that played on their 1993 album ‘Laid’, which suggests singer Tim Booth will return after quitting the group in 2001, alongside Mark Hunter, Jim Glennie, David Baynton-Power, Saul Davies and Larry Gott.
The band’s comeback show will be at the Glasgow Academy on April 21 and they will play shows in Newcastle, Birmingham and London ahead of a huge homecoming gig at Manchester’s MEN Arena on April 28.
Announcing the news on their official website, a band statement said: “James are back. Still fresh as a daisy. Ready to be the bride not the bridesmaid.
“With a back catalogue to die for and a bunch of new songs the ‘Laid’ six will be playing live for the first time in six years.”
The tour dates are as follows:
Glasgow Academy (April 21),
Newcastle Academy (23),
Birmingham Academy (24),
London Brixton Academy (27),
Manchester MEN Arena (28).
