Description

James announces return to Kiwi shores for two shows

British rockers James will return to New Zealand later this year.

They will play the Powerstation in Auckland on Sunday, November 11 and Monday, November 12 at the Bedford Marquee in Christchurch.

The New Zealand shows follow their highly successful seven-date tour of the UK and headlining slots at the Common People Festival.

James will also play a handful of other major festivals across Europe throughout the northern hemisphere summer, including Rock in Rioin Lisbonon June 29 and Bilbao BBK Livein Spainon Saturday July 14 and

The British rockers played in New Zealand for the first time ever two years ago, selling out the Powerstation and impressing fans and critics alike.

The set-list “trod a careful ground between the band’s classic hits - to which the crowd knew every word - and the well-received work of their recent renaissance, the albums LE PETITE MORT and THE GIRL AT THE END OF THE WORLD. They engaged with the new material, but soaked up the classics - ‘Come Home’, ‘Laid’, ‘Born of Frustration’, ‘Feel Like Fred Astaire’ - with passion”

James is one of the UK’s most creatively restless and most loved acts.

After signing to Factory Records in 1982, they went on to release a series of successful hit singles. From ‘Sit Down’to ‘She’s A Star’, ‘Laid’, ‘Come Home’,‘Moving On’ to ‘Nothing But Love’ their uniquely diverse sound spans over 14 studio albums released over three decades.

James achieved both critical and commercial success whilst also curating a base of dedicated fans and selling over 25 million albums worldwide. The band has also played shows across the globe cementing their status as one of the most iconic live British bands.

In 2016 they released GIRL AT THE END OF THE WORLD, which became their most commercially and critically successful album for nearly 20 years.
