MANCHESTER James are to play a set in their home city to mark the release of their new album.
The band, who reformed last year, will play at the HMV store on Market Street on Monday at 12.30pm and then sign copies of their 10th studio album, Hey Ma.
The group formed at Manchester University when the trademark dancing of frontman Tim Booth, pictured, attracted the attention of bassist Jim Glennie.
The veteran outfit, whose biggest hits during the Madchester years included Sit Down and Come Home, played their first show together at Eccles British Legion in 1980.
Fans need wristbands to get into the HMV gig. They will be available at the store from 8am.
