Hot Chip are back from their recent tour of Australia. A massive success, the band played to packed out houses all over and managed to lift the roof on the Sydney Opera House (read the Sydney Morning Herald review here and the Music review here). The Opera House kindly sent us these pictures of the gig (taken by Dan Boud). Next stop – summer festivals in Europe. See you there.
Hot Chip have been announced as one of the headline acts at the first Metropolis Festival at RDS in Dublin (November 7th & 8th). They will be joining The Roots, Todd Terje, Tiga, Le Galaxie, Omar Souleyman on the first day of the festival (the following day includes CHIC feat Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Jamie xx, Giorgio Moroder, Four Tet and Jeff Mills). For more information, visit the festival’s website here. The band play their own show at the Limelight in Belfast on Nov 6th. Tickets available now from here. The band’s recent appearance at Electric Picnic gained them an incredible 5* review in the Irish Times.
