Leftfield Birmingham show Announced
Tuesday 30th November
Space 2 Warehouse @ Custard Factory
Leftfield have announced their biggest UK Tour in over a decade. After a series of stunning headline performances at some of this year’s hottest festivals including Rockness, Benicassim, L.E.D and Creamfields, Neil Barnes returns with a new live show set to reverberate the length of the UK this autumn. Barnes will be joined by original vocalists Djum Djum, Earl 16 and Cheshire Cat for a tour that will demonstrate once again why Leftfield Live remains one of the must-see music experiences on the planet.
The tour kicks off on Thursday 18th November and will see Leftfield perform across England and Scotland. On Tuesday 30th November the band will play a very special show in Birmingham at Space 2 Warehouse Custard Factory, the venues low ceilings providing the perfect backdrop for an intimate reunion with the West Midlands.
Leftfield’ Neil Barnes comments: “The reception we received over the summer at the festivals was amazing. Now we can't wait to get out there again this autumn and bring the full Leftfield Live experience to the rest of the country. Let the bass roar.”
Leftfield trailblazed their unique sound in the early ‘90s, allaying rave with the power of rock music and taking John Lydon back to the top of the charts in the process. The band’s debut ‘Leftism’ became a modern classic, heralded as one of the greatest albums of all time by Q Magazine. Sophomore effort ‘Rhythm & Stealth’ went to number 1, spawning the techno anthem ‘Phat Planet’ which soundtracked that Guinness advert with the horses.
Revealed as the loudest band EVER to play Brixton Academy, Leftfield’s show made such a seismic impact that it remains the benchmark for live electronic music to this day. They can can take recognition for inspiring some of the world’s biggest dance acts, including Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx, Chemical Brothers and Underworld, and the original superstar DJ Sasha, who acclaims Leftfield as “writing the commandments on electronic music”. Now Leftfield are back…
This is set to be one of the biggest, loudest, and most emotional tours of the year, taking dance music back to its roots with one of electronic music’s true originals. The Birmingham leg gives the West Midlands opportunity to feel the intensity of these icons of electronica in their true glory, back to their vitriolic best..
