Indie band James to finish their UK tour in Hull

Indie legends, James.

Indie legends James have announced they will be embarking on 12 date UK tour which finishes at the Bonus Arena, Hull on the 22nd March.

In a typical non-conventional James style, the band will be ‘supporting themselves’ in a special 30-minute acoustic set before their famed storming electric main show.

Tim Booth explains: “So for this smaller venue March tour we intend to split the gig up into a 30ish pin drop, bars closed, acoustic set – followed by a 1hr 25ish rock set after the interval.”

Their latest single ‘Many Faces’ makes a stand against xenophobia and racism, citing a message of peaceful unity that: “There’s only one human race, Many faces, Everybody belongs here,” written in response to Trump’s racist tweets concerning Mexicans and building a certain wall (“All walls fall over time”).

Tim Booth comments: “We have never had such a reaction to a new song as we have been getting to Many Faces. The sense of inclusion it engenders seems to produce a secular high of unity.”
