Fresh from celebrating their 40th anniversary, James are delighted to announce they are joining the headline line-up for Live At The Piece Hall 2023.
The indie legends will play the historic Yorkshire venue on Friday July 7.
Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday December 2 via ticketmaster.co.uk
The Piece Hall announcement comes as the band – who gave the world such timeless anthems as Sit Down, Born of Frustration, She’s A Star and Come Home – get ready to release their forthcoming new double album – featuring orchestral reworkings of their greatest hits, fan favourites, deep cuts and will also include a new track.
One of Britain’s most enduring success stories, James have sold more than 25 million records worldwide since forming in Manchester in the early 1980s – gaining both critical and commercial acclaim.
Their unique craftsmanship, creativity and musical legacy has made them one of the most influential British bands of the last four decades.
This November marks 40 years since their first show as James (The Hacienda, supporting Big Country – November 17,1982).
They continue to be a massive live draw, headlining festivals and selling 60,000 tickets for their 2021 UK arena tour.
Their forthcoming ‘James Lasted’ orchestral tour – which hits the road early next year and includes dates at Liverpool’s Philharmonic Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and The Royal Albert Hall in London – sold out just hours after going on sale.
