James have announced their UK tour for later this year.
The rock band, who formed in Manchester in 1982, will play all over the country throughout October and November, performing alongside a full orchestra and choir.
‘An Evening with James with the Orchestra of the Swan and the Manchester Consort Choir’ will see the group rework their archived tracks to incorporate more musicians.
James’ first performance takes place at Cardiff’s Millennium Centre on October 23, followed by shows at The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on October 31 and November 1. The tour is scheduled to end at the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 4.
The band’s members include Tim Booth, Jim Glennie, Larry Gott and Saul Davies and they are best known for hits such as ‘Sit Down’ and ‘She’s a Star’.
James were recently announced as the Friday night headliner at this year’s tenth anniversary Wickerman festival.
