James Confirm James Lasted Orchestral Tour Of UK For Spring 2023

Monday, 14 November 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

James have announced James Lasted Orchestral Tour.

The band will celebrate their 40th Anniversary by being accompanied by a full orchestra and gospel choir at shows in Brighton, Cardiff, York, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Blackpool, Nottingham, Bath and London, where they'll wrap up the run at the Royal Albert Hall on May 17. 

Tickets go on general sale at 9.30am on November 18.

The milestone celebrations will also include the release of a double album, also with orchestra and choir accompaniment, featuring reworked versions of their greatest hits, plus fan favourites, deep cuts and one new track. Full details, including the record's release date and tracklist are still to follow. Frontman Tim Booth said:

"There are a number of great bands who have been around for 40. But to get here and to be having the best time of our lives. To be part of a supportive loving  family that still has something to say and new ways to say it. To be turned on by every gig and song. To fall in love over and over again, Groundhog Day, with our bandmates and audience. Damn. That’s time well spent.
"We should have recorded the orchestra tour first time round, as many of you have reminded us. Well, we’ve done it now. And here comes the tour. The Orchestra and Gospel singers expand our palette, heighten the tenderness, heighten the celebration and, despite their numbers, somehow leave us feeling more naked and raw. It will be different, probably each night, because we are James and Joe knows how to dance with us. And because you are different, each night."

Bassist and backing vocalist Jim Glennie also commented: "Has it really been 40 years? In some ways it feels like yesterday and in others, many lifetimes. A family of brothers and sisters, willing to support each other musically and emotionally. Uniquely challenging, always pushing ourselves into the new and taking risks collectively and individually, looking for transcendence."
