Reliably informed

Rightfully-revered legends of 90’s rave culture, The Orb were pioneers of ambient house, and they’ll be bringing their legendary and extensive live show to venues in the North East throughout November. Whilst remaining true to their roots through the decades, maintaining their sci-fi aesthetic and tendency towards elegiac, liquid soundscapes, The Orb have nonetheless adapted and shown impressive range without abandoning their defining characteristics. Classic dreamy ambience coexists side by side with more upbeat, danceable stuff such as Daze and Ital Orb from 2021’s Abolition Of The Royal Familia.

With such an extensive and ever-evolving back catalogue, it is impossible to predict exactly what the shows will comprise of; we expect deep-cuts and obscurities alongside timeless classics such as Little Fluffy Clouds. The Orb are as experienced as it gets, and know how to perfectly craft a set-list to feel as cohesive a journey as a studio album, the atmosphere augmented by an elaborate and ever evolving light-show, imagery and aesthetic having always been a focus of The Orb’s carefully curated image.

Any fans of 90’s electronic music won’t want to miss this opportunity to see genuine royalty from the golden age.

The Orb play Wylam Brewery, Newcastle on Thursday 3rd, Independent in Sunderland on Friday 4th and The Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Sunday 13th November.
