Chilled-Out Röyksopp Set for Fireworks in Leeds and London, November 2009

Posted: 3rd September 2009

Norwegian blessed-out duo, Royksopp, have announced a nice little pair of dates in the North and South for November. Leeds University will be the first to chill-out to the Eple-songwriters on the 4th - tickets cost £16.50. On the following night, Guy Fawkes (5th), the lads head to London's Shepherd's Bush Empire for a rendition of their party bangers, as well as the classic mellowness they are associated with. Tickets are £21.50 and on sale now.

They performed at the Clapham Get Loaded festival during the Bank Holiday Weekend and wowed the crowds before Orbital ramped things up afterwards. The Tromsø talents have been charming UK audiences for several years since their landmark debut album, "Melody AM", turned from a 'sleeper' to a 'keeper', partly due to their massive clubber's come-down anthem, "Eple", being stalked by every TV ident-producer in the land. The follow-up album, "The Understanding" didn't quite emulate the creative heights but their most recent set, "Junior", has proved to be a varied and tasty bunch of cuts - expect "Happy Up Here", "Girl & The Robot" and the excellent "This Must Be It" to jump from the set-list.
