James & BBC Philharmonic was a collaboration for
Versus Cancer at MEN Arena in 2009. The headline
set saw Tim, Larry & Jim perform with members of
BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.
"Finally, it was down to James to steal the show. They
teamed up with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and
the night suddenly had a BBC Electric Proms feel with
Tim and the band running through some classic tracks
including Say Something, Just like Fred Astaire and
She’s A Star, with full orchestral backing. The show
climaxed as Tim was joined by New Order’s Peter
Hook for a special tribute to Joy Division. Tim Booth
threw himself into his trademark dance, much to the
delight of the Manchester crowd, finishing a perfect
night of music in aid of a good cause."
