Review: Dave Simpson @ The Guardian
It works because newer songs such as climate change anthem Beautiful Beaches more than live with the old and Booth is such a livewire, charismatic performer. In full flow – hyperactively shake-dancing, beatifically grinning, at one point using a megaphone to shamanically shout to the spirits – the 61-year-old seems to transcend global worries to reach a highly engaging enlightened contentment. The singer’s smile widens at the arena-sized wave of clapping that greets 2001’s sublime Getting Away With It (All Messed Up) and the band finally unleash whoppers Sound, Laid and the perennial Sit Down, during which the band sit down and seated audience members stand up. The hits bring crowd euphoria, but James are still on a quest for humanity’s deeper truths.

Review: Andy Houghton @ Metal Planet Music
By the time we reach the encores, the audience is buzzing. ‘Wherever It Takes Us’ is followed by classics ‘Sit Down’ and ‘Laid’, which just had to be part of the bill. Even in the absence of Tim’s stage-diving – Covid has put paid to that for now – the band felt deeply engaged with the crowd, and the event was thrilling. Live music doesn’t come much better than this.

A setlist to that jumps around the back catalogue without ever feeling disjointed. The reason is the way James infuse their older songs with the vibrancy of the new and perform them as if they’ve just been written.
