London-based dance pioneers Groove Armada have today announced a momentous stint of UK dates, in celebration of their 21st anniversary of their forming. The duo of Andy Cato and Tom Findlay have released eight studio albums during their time, creating some of the most world’s most popular electronic music, and garnering three Grammy nominations in the process.
The four date winter UK tour will kick off in Bristol on November 29, before concluding at Manchester’s famous Store Street on December 2. Full dates can be seen below, and tickets go on sale here at 9am on Friday, September 14.
The duo first met back in 1994, and in 2002, they founded Lovebox Festival, which is still held to this day in Gunnersbury Park, and saw the likes of Childish Gambino and SZA perform this summer. Speaking on the return of Groove Armada’s renowned live show, Andy Cato said: “The live show is what defined us. Refining a genuinely live dance music experience became an obsession, from minute sonic details to the number of sides on the laser glitter ball. The reward was a lawless and electric 15 years on the road; runs at Brixton so long it felt like we lived there, the loudest ever recorded cheer at Lowlands, taking over Centennial Park in Sydney, Saturday nights in Barrowlands, air traffic control on the phone to the Other Stage at Glastonbury, once you start… We did all this with the best on and off stage crew ever assembled. The vibe in the camp was special and radiated. Behind the scenes, from cooks to truckers, we’re always asked if we’ll get the gang back on the road. If we’re going to do it one more time, it’ll be when we’re 21.”
