    ARTIST BIO

    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."


    The band’s longevity can be attributed to their constant process of renewal and reinvention.

    Their most recent album, 2016’s ‘Girl at the End of the World’ debuted at number two in the

    UK album charts. In total, they have sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, including

    their 1998 ‘Best Of’ which was a UK number one and went triple platinum. James’ reputation

    as a uniquely transcendent live act is well-earned, having headlined festivals from

    Glastonbury in 1992 to Bingley Weekender in 2019.
