James Live in 2024 tour setlist and support acts


British rock icons James are really riding high right now.

In April, the Manchester legends celebrated their first ever Official Number 1 studio album with Yummy

The enduringly popular band told Official Charts at the time: “We really appreciate this. We’d really like to thank our amazing audience who’ve stuck with us for 42 years. Thank you so much for going out and buying our Yummy, delicious record, and long may it all continue."

Yummy – their 18th studio LP – is James' second UK Number 1 album after 1998's The Best Of compilation. That collection brought together many of their biggest Official Singles Chart hits up to that point including Sit Down (Number 2 in 1991), Sound (Number 9 in 1991) and She's a Star (Number 9 in 1997).

Now, the nine-piece band fronted by Tim Booth are heading out on a UK arena tour kickstarted by a couple of intimate warm-up gigs. At this point in their career, James have a mammoth catalogue to draw from, so here's a guide to their likely 2024 setlist.
