Underworld North America

Underworld will disembark in North America for a 5-show mini tour

The legendary UK electronic music duo Underworld formed in 1980 by the English musician Karl Hyde and the Welsh Rick Smith, have just announced a brand new 5-show mini tour across North America performing in different cities in United States and in Canada.

The charismatic pair are truly one of those acts that have been through everything in their massive 40-year long career. They have tasted and lived their own success with iconic anthems like ‘Born Slippy‘ that just turned 25 years. Actually, their ‘Born Slippy (Nuxx)‘ edit, released a year later, might perfectly be one of the all time greatest tracks of the dance music history, transcending genres and time. It also gained more fame and recognition for being one of the main tracks of the Oscar Academy Award-nominated British film from the ’90s Trainspotting. In fact, their career has been so long and their relevance has been such, that they were the inspiration for artists that went on to become electronic music legends in the present like Steve Angello.

This next month of May, Underworld will be coming back to North America after 5 years away from the American stages. Their mini tour will start in USA with the first 2 shows taking place at The Warfield in San Francisco and at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles on May 15th and 16th. Four days later on May 20th, they will be landing in New York City to perform at the Hammerstein Ballroom, just before ending their US roadtrip with a show at the Movement Festival in Detroit on May 23rd. Their final stop will be at Rebel in Canada’s largest city, Toronto on May 27th.

Fans will not only enjoy of the band’s all time classics but also of their freshest techno sounds from their recent album ‘DRIFT Series 1‘.
