Legendary Manchester band James embark on a seven date UK tour in May beginning at Llandudno’s Venue Cymru on May 16.

The tour will see the group whose hits include 90s anthems Sit Down and Laid, re-visit venues across the country not played by the band for many years including Bath, Halifax, and Warrington, giving fans the chance to see them in unique and intimate surroundings.

Lead singer Tim Booth says: “After the intimacy of the Manchester Albert Hall gig we decided to try a small tour of smallish venues. We’ll see you in the mega domes later in the year.”

These shows will be their first run of dates in the UK since the huge success of their 2016 release Girl at the End of the World which reached number two, second only to Adele in their debut week.

The band are then set to play Common People Festival co-headlining the Southampton event on Saturday 26th May and headlining Oxford on Sunday 27th May before going on to perform at a handful of festivals across the UK, as well as playing European festivals including Bilbao BBK Live in Spain on Saturday 14th July.
