James announce new Bath Racecourse show

Posted on: 04 Feb 2022

James have announced the Spring 2022 show as part of the Live After Racing programme.


The UK indie heavyweights, celebrating their 40th Anniversary this year, will visit the racecourse for a massive outdoor show on 3 June 2022.


Tickets for the gig will be available for presale on Wednesday (9 February) for O2 customers with general sale available the following Friday (11 February). Tickets will go live on the event page.



Since the release of breakthrough single ‘Sit Down’ in 1991, the indie mainstays have released a stunning sixteen records to date. James’ numerous musical achievements include selling over 25 million albums worldwide and achieving four UK Top 10s.


The Mancunian group have also played a plethora of headline shows at massive venues such as Alton Towers as well as prestigious festivals all over the world. After breaking up in the early 2000s, the band announced their reunion in 2007.


James released their most recent record, All The Colours Of You, in 2021. Their most energetic and festival-ready album in years, it was produced by Grammy award-winning Jacknife Lee – known for his work with high-profile artists such as Taylor Swift, U2 and The Killers.


This creative union has resulted in a record that has been praised by both fans and respected publications including MOJO and UNCUT. The UK Winter tour of All The Colours Of You was James' fastest selling to date with over 60,000 tickets sold.

Now, off the back of this successful return to live music, James are eager to be back in front of fans at their upcoming headline slot at Bath Racecourse in June – a show that promises to be jam packed with past classics as well as brand new tracks.


Headlining the Racecourse on Friday 3 June, this ‘Live After Racing’ fixture will include a full day at the races before James head to the stage for an exciting evening set.


Tickets will be available for presale to O2 customers on 9 February at 9AM for O2 customers with general sale on 11 February. Head to the event page to grab yours.
