We're thrilled to be welcoming 808 State to Concorde 2 for this live performance!
30 years since 808 State made the opening salvos
into what became UK Acid House & Techno. Their legacy is being discovered
by new generations, with versions of their classic anthems such as ‘Pacific
State’, ‘In Yer Face’ & ‘Cubik’, remodelled every few
years - be it by other
international acts (Bicep, Too Many DJs), classical orchestras (Manchester
Camerata) or art led projects (Jeremy Deller’s Acid Brass).
State littered the Pop music charts with the oddest of tracks and
collaborations, but did so as one of the first album orientated groups of the
Rave era - here is where 808 State made their mark with
genre defining albums such as Newbuild,
90, Ex:El & Don Solaris.
These albums for the ZTT & Tommy
Boy labels had 808 State touring the globe, as a live act of some repute.
Always technology driven, 808 State’s recent live performances at Moog Fest and
Galaxiid last year saw brand new material introduced, alongside the classics,
with a more organic improvisatory nature due to the march of new portable and
gig friendly music technology.
Over 14s welcome, under 16s must be accompanied by a adult (18+), ID will be required.
