The Gathering Sound Tour: James + Echo & the Bunnymen
James head out on The Gathering Sound Tour in the UK, kicking off in April 2013.
The legendary Manchester band, who have released twelve albums and sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, will be performing songs from their extensive back catalogue. The band have also confirmed that Echo and the Bunnymen will be appearing as their very special guests. The two bands will be touring together for the first time.
Lead singer Tim Booth said: "It is with great pleasure that we announce our Gathering Sound April tour with the legendary Echo and the Bunnymen as our very special guests. We will be re-working old songs and revealing some new steps - expect the unexpected and prepare yourself for more passion than fifty shades of grey.”
The band are currently writing and working on new material together in Scotland.
This event takes place at Colston Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Champions of the Madchester era, and famous for anthems such as Sit Down and She's A Star, James are one of the classic bands of the British music scene. They reformed in 2007 after a five year hiatus. James are back and better than ever.
James tour dates
Eighties indie heroes whose majestic songwriting haunted a generation of bedsits and student pads. Re-formed in 1997, and still fronted by the inimitable Ian McCulloch, there's every cause to celebrate the Bunnymen's return.
Their seminal albums 'Crocodiles', 'Heaven Up Here', 'Porcupine', 'Ocean Rain' & 'Echo & The Bunnymen' have all been a major influence for groups such as Coldplay, The Killers and The Flaming Lips whilst later albums 'Evergreen', 'What Are YouGoing To Do With Your Life?', ‘Siberia' & 'Meteorites' demonstrate what an amazing body of work the band have.
