James, the indie rockers from Manchester, will be playing a one-off gig at Al Garhoud's Irish Village on 22nd November.
This time the band is sporting a brand-new album ‘Living in Extraordinary Times” which was released on 3 August 2018 as well as all their huge back catalogue of British classics.
The outdoor venue is a perfect spot for the band- popular in the 1990s- to crank up the volume and give us all the chance to re-hear classic tunes including 'Come Home', which was voted the greatest ever Manchester anthem in a radio poll.
James’ 1993 hit ‘Laid’ became the soundtrack to early 90s alternative radio before finding a second life through its use in teen hit American Pie films.
James had already had a decade of hits by the time Laid arrived, having risen from Manchester’s legendary Factory Records scene into one of the biggest UK bands in the world by the dawn of the 90s.
With worldwide hits including Laid,Getting Away With It (All Messed Up), Sit Down, Sound, She’s a Star and Just Like Fred Astaire, and selling over 25 million records worldwide, the band has a reputation of having a huge passionate fan base as well as playing brilliant live gigs.
2016 saw the release of 'Girl at the End of the World', their most commercially and critically successful album for nearly twenty years, which came close to knocking Adele’s 25 off the prized number 1 spot of the UK album chart.
With sell out shows, great reviews and mad fans, James is known the world over as one of the best live acts playing today.
The re-formed band is stopping over in Dubai for just one night, as part of an Australasia and South African tour. You might also be familiar with their ear-worm hit, 'Sit Down', but this is one gig where no-one will want to sit down for long.
