James ‘La Petite Mort’ tour will hit UK this November with special guests Starsailor.
Mancunian legends James return to the live arena with a full UK tour spanning 9 dates this November with special guests Starsailor.
James are behind some of the biggest hits of the last 30 years and have sold over 12 million albums worldwide. Their new album ‘La Petite Mort’ is out June 2nd, bringing with it more hits to add to the collection. Highlights include BBC 6 music favourite ‘Frozen Britain’ and new single ‘Moving On’, with its stunning animated video by BAFTA winner Ainslie Henderson.
Lead singer Tim Booth says,
“We feel we’ve made one of our strongest albums in La Petite Morte and are “dying” to reveal our live take on it to you on this tour along with a few other familiar faces. In James tradition we are very happy to have a great opening act in Starsailor – so come early, put on your glad rags and make a great night of it; we will be.”
James will be joined on all dates by Wigan favourites Starsailor. Their career has spanned more than a decade and saw the band release two top 10 albums, including ‘Love is Here’ and ‘Silence is Easy’ as well as a third album ‘All The Plans’ in 2008.
“We are really excited and honoured that James have asked us to support them on their forthcoming tour,” says Starsailor’s James Walsh, “We have been on hiatus for a number of years now so it’s great to return to the live arena alongside such an iconic band.”
James tickets are on sale from 10.30am Friday 09 May at eventim.co.uk
