SIT DOWN AND STEP ON AS JAMES AND HAPPY MONDAYS COME TO BRUM
A pre lockdown drive back from Brighton reconnected us to the delights of Tim Booth and James so we were thrilled to hear the band will be coming to Utilita Arena Birmingham on 26 November 2021 as part of a new UK arena tour with very special guests Happy Mondays- 33 years since the two Factory label mates last toured together.
After signing to Factory Records in 1982, the band went on to release a series of successful hit singles & albums. From ‘Sit Down’ to ‘She’s A Star’, ‘Laid’, ‘Come Home’, ‘Moving On’ to ‘Nothing But Love’ & ‘Many Faces’ James have sold over 20 million albums, playing shows across the globe and cementing their status as one of the most iconic live British bands.
Following their original line up reformation in 2012, legendary Manchester band Happy Mondays will join this very special arena tour. Happy Mondays were first discovered by mastermind Tony Wilson in the Haçienda and have become synonymous with the Manchester music scene with classic album ‘Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches’ achieving platinum status in the UK alone. We fully expect to be there and feel 14 again.
