On 17th March, Underworld celebrate the meeting of the groups past, present and future at their biggest ever UK headline show – a sold-out event at London’s Alexandra Palace.
Underworld Surreal Carnival Experiment
It’s Underworld all night: Rick Smith kicks things off at 7pm with a performance-come-installation in the middle of the main room. Tracks from a deep-dive into the Underworld catalogue will be deconstructed and re-conceived alongside new and improvised work written specifically for the show by Rick. This support to the main event will be networked throughout the building in a collaboration directed by tomato’s Simon Taylor, that will offer hints at things to come from Underworld.
Surreal Carnival Experiment / Rick Smith Live from 7pm.
Doors, good food, craft beer and cocktails from 6.30pm.
In 2016, Underworld released their seventh studio album Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future to huge critical acclaim. Following the record’s release, the band played headline performances at Coachella, Glastonbury and Summer Sonic and received their first Grammy Nomination. In January 2017, T2 Trainspotting was released featuring an original score by Rick Smith alongside new Underworld material. Karl Hyde’s collaboration with Simon Stephens and Scott Graham, Fatherland, premieres at the Manchester International Festival in July 2017.
