It will feature top-ten hits You Give Me Something, Wonderful World, You Make It Real, Broken Strings and I Won’t Let You Go, plus a selection of fan favourites.
The 22-date tour includes a major London show at the Palladium and will see James play to a total audience of approximately 45,000 people.
James said: “It’s been way too long since I saw you all and I’m so excited to announce these special shows.
“Playing live is something I have really missed in the past year and seeing as it’s been nearly 15 years since I started, many of my songs over time have taken on a new life of their own: new emotions, new meanings and new feels in the way my band has played them. I’ve also become a better singer and inhabit the songs in a different way now. I wanted to reflect all of that on this Greatest Hits tour.
“I am buzzing to be back in a room with all my fans sharing my best songs. I can’t wait to see you all, it’s going to be amazing!”
