Underworld play their first gig without founder member Darren Emerson at the tenth birthday of the JUNIOR BOY’S OWN label, at LONDON ASTORIA on June 27.

The one-off show will be a warm-up for their appearance at this year’s V2000 festival, where they headline the JJB Arena at Chelmsford on August 19 and Staffordshire the following night.

As revealed by nme.com last month, Darren Emerson quit the band to concentrate on his career as a DJ, and to work on solo material.

Joining the new-look Underworld on the bill are Regular Fries and Gramme playing live, and DJs Futureshock and Darren Price. Tickets cost #16.
