James to celebrate 30th anniversary of Alton Towers at Castlefield Bowl next July

21st September 2021

Saturday 2nd July 2022 will mark the 30th anniversary weekend of the band’s legendary Alton Towers show. To celebrate the occasion, for one night only, they’re going to perform the same songs from that special night’s set at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl.

Jim remembers, “It was a crazy day that was nearly defeated by the weather and the gig was all the more celebratory due to the near miss. Come and celebrate 30 years since that iconic day and this time with guaranteed sunshine!”

Tickets go on general sale at 9:30am this Friday, but fans can get pre-sale tickets 24hrs ahead of that from 9:30am this Thursday here.

What a privilege to have you, our Portuguese fans, behind us!” – Saul.
