The Chemical Brothers will embark on their first proper US live tour in over 5 years this September 2007. As with previous tours, the band takes this new live show to even greater heights with ground-breaking auditory technology and retina scorching visuals by FLATNOSEGEORGE. This tour is their full live experience- not a DJ tour. The Chemical Brothers sixth long player, We Are The Night was released on July 17th 2007 and debuted as the #1 album in the UK - their 5th straight UK #1 album.
The Chemical Brothers tour is being presented by Zune as a part of their "On The Road" program, and encompasses a full range of brand integration with Microsoft's digital media player.
Check out reviews of their recent London gig at The Roundhouse:
"…the Chemical Brothers once again confirmed: 'We are the Night.'"- Spin.com
"The theme is unremitting sensory overload, with gargantuan techno rhythms competing with lurid kaleidoscopic visuals."- The Guardian (UK) review
"This was an experience well worth the wait."- Launch music on Yahoo (UK)
"The show that "The Brothers" put on could have easily rivaled the likes of any James Bond computer generated extravaganza or equally well stood its ground against any million pound New Year's Eve fireworks display."- Backstage Pass (UK)
Also, be sure to check out the new video contest for the Brother's new single, "The Salmon Dance" (featuring Fatlip). The winner will be chosen by Tom & Ed on September 10 and will receive 2 tickets to see the band perform live. Details are here: www.youtube.com/group/salmondance
*Liverpool-based electropop quartet LADYTRON will join The Chemical Brothers at hipster mega-venue McCarren Park Pool on Saturday, September 22. Their 2001 debut has spawned a glut of imitators obsessing over vintage synths and asymmetric haircuts, yet Ladytron always stood apart with their unbridled energetic synth-pop and Leftfield leaning shoegazing sounds. Kick off the concert of the season with Ladytron’s overdriven electronic pulse and enter their realm of spectral, other-worldly music for a powerful combination with The Chems.
Now come see for yourself why The Chemical Brothers world-renowned live shows have captivated audiences around the globe for over 12 years!
