Forthcoming Groove Armada UK tour to be their last ever

Forthcoming Groove Armada UK tour to be their last ever

Andy Cato and Tom Findlay decide to retire the GA live band experience

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 of course – there are big and exciting DJ performance and production plans for 2011 – but rather 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.

O2 teams up with Groove Armada for the final UK ‘White Light’ tour

For each Groove Armada gig at an O2 Academy venue, 10 fans will be chosen to attend the gig and film one song using their mobile phone from a different perspective in the venue. All the footage will then be edited together to make a stunning piece of video for that song. The videos will be posted to You Tube and the venue Facebook pages so that fans can relive the gig and share their experience using the ultimate live recording.

Groove Armada turn Black Light into White Light

To celebrate this momentous occasion the band have created a series of fresh, new live studio tracks that will be released to coincide with the tour.  Tom Findlay commented “It began as Black Light. Then it was recut, reworked and enlarged for a festival season that began at Glastonbury, crossed Europe, took in Japan, and ended in Moscow. Now these king size live versions have been taken back to the studio and re-recorded. Black Light has become White Light.”
