Techno lords Orbital are returning to Australia and New Zealand for the first time in eight years, celebrating their 30th Anniversary as a band in 2019.
The electronica icons are back down under after their 2018 album 'Monster Exist' shot them back into the UK charts after six years, reaching #12 in the Main Chart and #1 in the Dance Chart. In the US the band landed on the Billboard chart for the first time since 2004, debuting at #24 on Dance/Electronic Albums. The album was a return to the rave sounds of Orbital as well as including their unique political voice commenting on the current state of the UK with Brexit and including a speaking interlude by the infamous Professor Brian Cox. Of the back of the new album Phil and Paul also performed sold out shows at both Manchester O2 Apollo and the London Eventim Apollo.
The brothers - who are no strangers to the ups and downs of music - are back together touring as well for the first time since breaking up in 2014. The duo will be heading to New Zealand this month, joining the Splore Festival in Auckland and Electric Avenue in Christchurch before they head across the ditch to Australia. With huge demand for the live show, performing an upgraded show at The Enmore in Sydney, The Forum in Melbourne and The Triffid in Brisbane, as well as heading to Perth Festival and the Adelaide Fringe - fans will be treated to a combined 30 years of music in their acclaimed live show.
Don't miss your chance to catch Orbital as they bring the real UK rave scene back to Australia and New Zealand in 2019.
