Orbital announce live dates 2018
After last December’s stunning sold out shows in London and Manchester, Orbital – creators of classic electronic symphonies and originators of live dance music as a must-see ecstatic live experience – announce a welcome return to London’s Eventim Hammersmith Apollo this December. The date is:
SATURDAY 15 DECEMBER EVENTIM APOLLO HAMMERSMITH, LONDON
Tickets go on sale this Friday 9 March, 9am and will be available from: metropolism.uk/mpcika
Following a five-year hiatus, brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll reunited in 2017 to bring the acclaimed Orbital live show, which has been described by both The Guardian and Q Magazine as among the greatest gigs of all time, to a new generation.
By huge popular demand they have already announced a series of live events and festivals for 2018, which are currently on sale with more still to be announced:
May 25 BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend, Titanic Slipways, Belfast
June 29 Brighton Racecourse, Brighton
June 30 Zebedee’s Yard, Hull
July 13 Beathearder, The Ribble Valley, Lancashire
July 14 Cruilla Festival, Barcelona ES
July 28 Margate Dreamland, Margate UK
July 29 Camp Bestival, Dorset
August 3 Dekmantel, Amsterdam NL (sold out)
August 5 The Beatyard 2018, Dublin IE
September 1 The Downs Festival, Bristol UK
Recording for their new album is ongoing at their own studio in Brighton. It will be the duo’s first new album since the much-acclaimed ‘Wonky,’ which came out back in 2012. As quoted from The Skinny then, “Their ability to absorb new influences within their own distinct universe is peerless.” This neatly sums up the uncanny knack Orbital have for staying close to their fans and connecting with a new listening audience. The album is expected to land this year.
….It’s time to go round again.
