Tim Booth from James says: “Right now James are in a fully tested Covid bubble rehearsing for this concert. You never really value some things until you’ve lost them -so now, to be playing together in a room, to be coming to play to an audience, to be working with all the people who put on these amazing events, things we used to take for granted – we are re-appreciating in a deep way. As one of the first concerts out of lockdown, this will be a massive celebration. Let’s have a party!”
