Groove Armada to tour UK
Amanda Briggs | Thursday, 23 September 2010
Dynamic dance duo Groove Armada have revealed that their forthcoming tours of the UK and Australia will be their last ever shows as a full live band.
This doesn't mark an end for the boys, though; there are big and exciting DJ performance and production plans for 2011. But it does signify the start of a whole new chapter.
Confirming their plans, Andy and Tom said:
"We've crossed and re-crossed the world with this band and crew. There's no other team like it. With their help, GA live became the sound of legendary nights from Mount Fuji to Moscow.
"It's not often in the spotlight maybe; but ask the people who have come and filled the tents and surrounded the stages for the last decade. A massive thanks to all of them, for staying with us on a journey from Richie Havens to Saint Saviour."
The Manchester, Bristol and second Brixton shows have already sold out, along with the entire allocation of tickets on the band's website. So with only a few hundred tickets left across all shows, if you want to see the band live, nab tickets for the rest of the tour, sharpish.
