James have announced a special intimate warm up show in Wolverhampton ahead of their much anticipated UK tour, taking place at KK’s Steel Mill on Tuesday 23rd November. It will be the first time the band has played in the city for five years and follows the release of their acclaimed 2021 record, ‘All The Colour of You’. Read our interview with James HERE.
The show is in partnership with Wolves Records, supporting the local music community by accepting submissions for a Wolverhampton based support act in recognition of the struggle for smaller artists to get their music heard during the pandemic. Wolverhampton based acts can submit for the support opportunity at: https://www.syncrmusic.com/job/james-support-slot/.
James have also released an acoustic rendition of ‘Miss America’, taken from their forthcoming ‘The Campfire EP’ out November 19th. The EP features intimate versions of tracks from the latest album, as well as classic hits from their extensive back catalogue. The limited-edition, numbered EP will be exclusively available on the James store and at the merchandise stand on their forthcoming tour, including a QR code to download the Campfire videos.
Tickets for James intimate headline show including VIP soundcheck packages will go on general sale at 9am on Wednesday 10th November and will be available from www.gigsandtours.com.
