James are proud to announce their March 2019 Living in Extraordinary Times UK Tour. Starting at Margate Winter Gardens, the tour will visit some of the UK’s best known and most iconic venues, from London’s Royal Albert Hall and Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall, to favourites like the Cambridge Corn Exchange. The band will be performing some of their well-loved classic hits alongside new material from their most recent top ten album Living In Extraordinary Times.

In typically non-conventional James style, the band will be “supporting themselves” in a special thirty-minute acoustic set before their famed and storming electric main show. Singer Tim Booth explains; “For this smaller venue March tour we intend to split the gig up into a 30-ish minute ‘pin drop’, bars closed, acoustic set, followed by an electric set after the interval.”

A fan made video for their single Many Faces, which features snapshots of recognisable faces from political and popular culture, from Theresa May to Kim Kardashian, Malala Yousafzai to Beyonce, Colin Kaepernick to Barack Obama. Alongside these familiar faces sits footage from various news reports and documentaries; the rich and the poor appearing in uncomfortable proximity as makeshift refugee camps are swiftly followed by shots of the Trump Hotel’s plush interior, pointedly followed by a snippet of freshly printed dollars.

James have been on the road for the last few months of 2018, having embarked on a triumphant sold out UK theatre tour in May before playing at festivals across the UK and Europe over the summer including headline slots at Latitude and Rock in Rio Lisbon. Venturing further afield in November 2018, they played dates across Australia, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates and South Africa, before uniting with fellow heavyweights of British music The Charlatans on a four-date UK arena tour in early December.
