James – who have sold more than 25 million records worldwide – have released 14 studio albums over the past 30 years which have gained both critical and commercial acclaim.
The band’s most recent release, 2016’s Girl at the End of the World – which includes such stunning songs as Nothing But Love, Girl At The End Of The World and Dear John – hit No.2 in the UK Album charts and became their most successful album in almost 20 years.
James’s enduring creativity and musical legacy has made them one of the most influential British indie bands of the last four decades. After signing to Factory Records in 1982, they went on to release a series of massive hit singles and built a huge, loyal and fanatical fanbase.
The band embark on a UK tour in May – visiting many intimate indoor venues – before a series of major festival appearances and huge outdoor dates, including the not-to-be-missed return to Scarborough OAT where they headlined in 2015. This was in the days when a water-filled moat stood between the stage and the audience.
