James play Doncaster Racecourse in August

James announce a summer outdoor show at Doncaster Racecourse, with the show taking place on Saturday 17th August 2019!

This following the release of their brand new album Living In Extraordinary Times last year. Extraordinary times call for extraordinary music, and James are back with new songs forged in these strangest of days.

The Mancunians returned in 2018 with the Better Than That EP and they followed in August with their 15th studio album, aptly titled Living In Extraordinary Times. Taken together as shot and chaser they prove James to be as vital, visceral and urgent as ever.

James are one of British indie rock’s most celebrated and enduring bands. Formed in 1982 in Whalley Range, Manchester, their debut Jimone EP was released in November the following year on Factory Records and made Morrissey and Johnny Marr into early fans. The band went on to produce a string of huge hits during the next three decades, including Come Home, Sit Down, She’s a Star, and Laid.

After an intimate tour of UK venues in May 2018, the band took their new music on the road in the summer with festivals in the UK and Europe and further shows at the end of last year.

There’s nobody quite like James.

But like we said, extraordinary times call for extraordinary music.
