Armada setting sail for night of groovin'

Groove Armada: Belfast bound for 10th anniversary show at the Waterfront Hall in October

There'll be plenty of groovin' going on the Waterfront Hall in Belfast in October when one of the UK's top electronic acts bring their show to town.



Groove Armada will stage their biggest gig in Belfast on October 24 as part of their 10th anniversary tour.

DJ/producer duo Cate and Findlay will be accompanied by a 12-piece band for their first show in Belfast in three years.

Groove Armada, who formed in the mid-90s, are best known to the music listening public for producing songs that have appeared in a number of high profile advertising campaigns.

The song I See You Baby was used in a 2003 Renault Megane ad, while If Everybody Looked The Same featured in a 2001 Mercedes Benz ad. The track At The River is currently being used in a Marks and Spencer food campaign.

Groove Armada have collaborated with a selection of artists, including Neneh Cherry and Mutya Buena and are set to work with Kylie Minogue on her comeback album, due out later this year.

At the Belfast gig they will be performing songs from their current album Soundboy Rock, and following a sizzling performance at Lovebox in Dublin recently the show is expected to sell out quickly.

Tickets to see Groove Armada at the Waterfront Hall on October 24 go on sale tomorrow at 9am - priced £22.50 and £25 - and are available from Ticketmaster and usual outlets.

The important thing is to work with materials that appeal to your sense of touch. You have a deep appreciation for tactile objects and people.More
