Endeavour Live and Spring City presents
Groove Armada Live + Hot Chip (DJ Set) - Christchurch
I see you Christchurch... shaking that *ss!
One of the globe's biggest electronic dance acts GROOVE ARMADA will be touring their full live band experience across New Zealand this Spring as part of their 25 Years farewell tour. The tour will feature performances from their full band, along with support from HOT CHIP (DJ SET) at QEII PARK in CHRISTCHURCH on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24 2022
For over two decades GROOVE ARMADA has been established as one of the planet's best loved and biggest selling dance acts. Since debuting in 1997, they’ve proved that it’s possible to bravely explore a multitude of sounds while achieving critical and commercial success. It’s a trait that is apparent within a selection of their best loved songs. From the dancehall dub of ‘Superstylin’ to the crossover pop of ‘Song 4 Mutya (Out of Control)’ and from the dancefloor-igniting ‘I See You Baby’ to the woozy sunset vibes of ‘At The River’, Groove Armada have consistently and uncompromisingly followed their own vision.
What the duo - Tom Findlay and Andy Cato - have achieved must’ve seemed unthinkable when they first met at university back in the nineties: three UK Top 10 albums; three Grammy nominations; a BRIT nomination; and a succession of hit singles that are still being discovered by new fans to this day. Despite having formed a quarter-of-a-century before streaming exploded, they still command the attention of almost two million monthly listeners at Spotify. They’ve also collaborated with or remixed countless high profile artists, notably Madonna, Paul Simon, Fatboy Slim, Calvin Harris, Neneh Cherry and Bryan Ferry.
Hot Chip (DJ Set) return in 2022 with Freakout/Release – the continuation of what, at this point, seems like an impossible run for the British electronic pop legends. Their eighth album features new singles 'Down' and 'Eleanor', and captures that giddy feeling of self-expression, a letting out of the tension conjured up by the world at large.
Fans of Groove Armada can expect to experience the live show including the full live band, with local support from George FM Breakfast host General Lee.
