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."
