The Orb, founded in 1988, originated as ambient and dub DJs in London and are known for spawning the genre of ambient house. A quarter century of critical, commercial and artistic success has followed with a 2014 world tour lauding their 25th anniversary. Currently featuring co-founder Alex Paterson alongside German techno master Thomas Fehlmann, the performance incorporates psychedelic imagery in concert for a thoroughly immersive experience. Over the last 25 years The Orb has charted one of the most idiosyncratic paths in music, notching up hit singles and albums, sellout shows all over the world and an impressive string of collaborations, most recently in 2012 with reggae legend Lee Perry on More Orbservations From The Starhouse. Their new album More Tales from the Orbservatory, available October 2013, marks their 14th release. The silver jubilee shows are a testament to the longevity of a uniquely original musical talent and guarantee an evening of floor-shaking grooves, warmly-surreal humour and the original euphoric spirit that turned acid house into the biggest youth revolution since punk rock.
Tribeadelic and Subsonic are very pleased to be bringing The Orb to Sydney.
Full Venue and ticketing details out soon.
