Supported by themselves with a special acoustic opening set
8:00pm, Monday 18 March 2019
We are excited to welcome James to the Usher Hall as part of their “LIVING IN EXTRAORDINARY TIMES” UK Tour. The band will be performing their well-loved classic hits alongside new material from their most recent Top 10 album ‘Living In Extraordinary Times’.
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 30 minute pin drop, bars closed, acoustic set - followed by a 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,”. The song instantly started to take on a life of its own with people singing it back to the band from the first times it was performed, as witnessed here in Halifax earlier in the year to recent performances as far flung as Australia and Dubai.
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.”
It's sure to be a great gig. Get a ticket and we'll see you there!
