Today (29th September) James are proud to announce a UK arena tour with Razorlight as Special Guests. Following on from a hugely successful 40th Anniversary year, the band will head out on a run of dates in June next year which includes Co-Op Live in their hometown of Manchester, and culminates at London’s 02 on 15th June.

The band will also be releasing their 17th studio album in April 2024, the first single of which will be announced in January, with further details to follow soon. Fans have a chance to access pre-sale tickets for the tour if they pre-order the new album.

James were honoured at The Ivor Novello Awards 2023, receiving the PRS Music Icon Award, kick starting a whole year of celebration for their 40th Anniversary. This prestigious award was followed by the release of their orchestral double album Be Opened By The Wonderful which reached #3 in the UK charts in June and a run of sold out tour dates, receiving the best reviews of their career.

Throughout the summer the band then headlined multiple UK and European festivals, culminating in two unique shows backed by full orchestra and choir at The Odeon Of Herodes Atticus, Athens and a Special Guest headline slot at Latitude Festival.

James have entered in to a golden era, and will continue to do so in 2024 and for many more years to come.

Tim Booth says “Deeply proud to announce that we are touring next year to coincide with the release of a rather wonderful new album that we are mixing this week. The new songs sound belting, and will fit this arena tour. Really looking forward to celebrating with you. Expect a mixture of the expected and unexpected - just like life. Nothing but love”

Jim Glennie says “We are delighted to announce our 2024 Arena Tour, supported by the wonderful 'Razorlight'. Come and share a night of biggies, rarities and a sizeable chunk of our exciting, next NEW album! See you there folks. With love, Jim from James”.

About James

One of Britain’s most enduring success stories, James have released 16 studio albums, selling over 25 million copies with their recent run of Top 5 albums proving to be a golden era for the band. All The Colours Of You released in 2021 was their most critically acclaimed in years, preceded by Living in Extraordinary Times and Girl at the End of the World which narrowly missed out on the top spot in 2016 to Adele.

James are: Tim Booth, Jim Glennie, Saul Davies, Adrian Oxaal, David Baynton-Power, Mark Hunter, Andy Diagram, Chloe Alper, Deborah Knox-Hewson.

About Razorlight

Since forming in 2002, Razorlight have cemented their place as one of Britain’s Classic Indie-Rock bands. Their debut album ‘Up All Night ’ came out in 2004, capturing the incendiary energy of early 2000s London and carrying the era defining hits ‘Golden Touch’ and ‘Somewhere Else’.Their self-titled, UK number one follow-up ‘Razorlight’ made the leap onto the international stage. Lead single, ‘In The Morning’, reached number three in the UK, and 'America’ went straight to number one. After 4 million albums, headlining Reading Festival and the front cover of Vogue, the band went on hiatus, gradually reforming in 2021 with the legendary line up of Johnny Borrell, Andy Burrows, Bjorn Agren and Carl Dalemo. New songs ‘You Are Entering The Human Heart’ and ‘Violence Forever?’ from their 2022 Best Of album ‘Razorwhat?’ proved that the creative spark has been relit and a sold out 2024 UK tour reminded of their ability to deliver a masterclass in genuinely live, no-backing-track rock’n’roll.
