Ok, so it might be obvious to sense my enthusiasm at this news, but this truly is very exciting stuff! I Actually, I have goose bumps!
I first saw James in the Glasgow Barrowlands when I was 16. Yes that was a long time ago in 1991 – some of you weren’t even born then.
I was hooked, addicted even and followed them( King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and others) around seeing them perform as many times as I could. My partner in crime was an old school chum Gillian (known as Gillyhen) and we even came up with a plan on how we could fairly share Tim Booth – I believe my time slot was during ‘Neighbours’ and ‘Home and Away’. Both of these TV shows were iconic during the 90s.
Chillout Productions has officially announced today the addition of the British rock veterans James to the 2016 line up. The Manchester seven-piece will be performing alongside Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox and Toto on February 24, at the 14th edition of the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival® 2016 at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre. Fans can expect an extraordinary performance from James as they will play live favourites and more throughout the night!
It’s safe to say that I will be right at the front singing every word to every song. I just need mum and dad to post out all my old tour tees. It’s just a pity that my fellow accomplice will not be passing through Dubai untill the following week.
