Win tickets to see Underworld live

Win tickets to see Underworld live

London dance duo Underworld have just released their sixth studio album – Barking – and are taking to the road for one last tour.

Karl Hyde and Rick Smith play the Manchester Academy this Thursday and we’ve got two tickets to give away to Confidential readers.

“This could be the last gigs Underworlds do,” Karl told Confidential. “We’ve got festivals lined up next year but this could be the end of our own shows.”

Underworld have forced the pace of electronic music since their Lazarus-like resurrection in the early '90s. The band's first album as a trio (with Darren Emerson), Dubnobasswithmyheadman set the tone for 15 years of success – most notably the crossover hit Born Slippy, which featured on the Trainspotting soundtrack and propelled the band in the mainstream in the mid-90s.

Karl said the tune ‘opened doors’ for his band and others on the dance scene.

“We’ve done other films off the back of it and we’ll probably do more,” he said. “It brought us an awful lot of fans in the 90s who are still with us too.

“But we’re really excited about playing Barking. It’s getting a good reaction live and we feel like a new band.”
