The electronic pioneers close up their European tour with two nights in Manchester

Rick Smith and Karl Hyde have been bringing joy to fans across the world through their energetic live show for decades – and 2024 will see Underworld up their game once again.

Finishing off their extensive headline 2024 European tour, the duo stop off in Manchester at Aviva Studios. No strangers to Factory International, the band were integral to the founding of Manchester Street Poem – a co-produced art collective whose work reflects the personal experiences of Manchester’s marginalised communities and first featured in the 2017 edition of Manchester International Festival.

Latest single denver luna – available in both acapella and full length versions – shows off the distinctive lyrics and the driving, propulsive sound they’re known for. Invigorating and vital, their new work continues to cement Underworld as pioneers of the UK electronic music scene.

Notable live moments from 2023 include a sold-out Royal Albert Hall in London, a crowd-rousing Coachella set in Palm Springs, a headline slot at electronic music festival Junction 2 in London and topping the bill at Lowlands festival in the Netherlands.
