Story by Jack Foley

JAMES have announced plans to reform and embark on a UK Spring tour, including a night at London’s Brixton Academy.

The Manchester six-piece haven’t played together since Tim Booth departed to go solo at the end of 2001 but they intend to play five dates in April, as well as release new material.

James recorded 10 studio albums and had 20 Top 40 singles in the late 80s and early 90s, including Sit Down, Sound and Laid – all of which became anthems.

They will be supported by ‘Best Midlands’ newcomers The Twang on tour.

They will play (all April dates):

21 – Glasgow Academy
23 – Newcastle Academy
24 – Birmingham Academy
27 – London Brixton Academy
28 – Manchester MEN Arena

Tickets go on sale on Friday, January 26 at 9am.
