James return to Greece

29th January 2019

At long last the band is returning to Greece. We’ve two exciting shows lined up this summer: our own gig in Thessaloniki at open air Fix Factory on Friday 7th June, followed by Release Athens Festival with the incredible Iggy Pop on Saturday 8th June.

“It’s a huge honour to be sharing the same stage as the legendary Iggy Pop,” says Jim. “Massively influential and an inspiration to not just us, but generations of artists.

“We are really looking forward to returning to Greece. We have so many friends there it feels like our second home.”

Pre–sale for Thessaloniki including—our VIP Soundcheck tickets—starts on 30th January at 11am local time (EET). Tickets for Athens are on sale now. For ticket links visit the wearejames.com live page.

James at the races

21st January 2019

Pleased to confirm James will play Doncaster Racecourse this summer on Saturday 17th August.  The gig starts after the races finish for the day and tickets include entry to both. We’ve arranged a fan pre-sale for 10am this Wednesday (23rd Jan), you’ll find the link on our live page when the sale opens. Note there are discounted tickets for Under-18s attending with an adult if you fancy a family outing!

Tickets for the day’s races plus gig are priced at £35 for adults and £20 for Under-18s (they must be accompanied by an adult).   The band will play shortly after the races finish so this’ll be an early one. Check the racecourse’s page for a rough idea of times.

N.B. The racecourse usually has an array of fancy packages for those who want to push the boat out, those may not be on sale till the general sale opens, so if you’re interested in that kind of thing, you may wish to hang on and see what’s available. (You may be able to get a rough idea checking out other events on the racecourse site, or you can phone them on 01302 304200.)
