James boys for Manchester Versus Cancer concert

Tim, Jim, and Larry to perform with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra

We are very pleased to announce that Tim, Jim, and Larry will be taking part in this year's Manchester Versus Cancer concert, which will take place on 12 December at the Manchester Evening News Arena, and promises to be a very special evening.

The annual event, now in its fourth year, aims to raise money for cancer patients in the region, with The Christie in Manchester being one of its beneficiaries. Other acts already confirmed for this year's concert include Andy Rourke (of The Smiths, and founder of Versus Cancer), Peter Hook (New Order), and Badly Drawn Boy.

This year looks set to be especially memorable, as the artists will be collaborating with the world renowned BBC Philharmonic Orchestra to perform special one-off sets. Tim, Jim and Larry will be working closely with critically acclaimed composer Joe Duddell on special arrangements of some of their songs.

They had this to say:

"We can't wait to get started on the arrangements and to work with such an amazing orchestra. The night looks set to be something that neither we, nor our fans will forget, and it's great to be involved with such an important cause."

Tickets for the concert go on sale on today, priced from £32.50 to £40, and are available from Ticketline, See Tickets, and Ticketmaster. Many more acts are due to be announced later this month. For more information on the event visit versuscancer.org.
