Having returned after a five year hiatus in 2017 with a new singles, ‘Copenhagen’ and ‘Kinetic 2017’, seminal UK electronic duo Orbital are continuing their welcome return this year with a series of live dates across the UK, Ireland and Europe.
Culminating with a massive headline show in London’s Eventim Hammersmith Apollo on 15th December, the brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll will play shows in cities including Brighton, Dublin, Barcelona as well as a slot at the mighty Dekmantel. You can see the full list of tour dates below. These dates follow two enormous shows in London and Manchester last December.
The pair are currently writing and recording the follow up to their 2012 album ‘Wonky’ in their studio in Brighton.
Orbital have reminded us time and time again of their peerlessness in the UK electronic music landscape. Last year, they delivered a wonderful exclusive mix for DJ Mag as part ahead of their performance at Beyond The Tracks.
