Orbital announce more reunion shows

Ravers say Klaxons inspired their return

Orbital have announced a pair of reunion shows of their own -as well as more festival appearances.

The dance duo, who split after their 2004 Glastonbury performance, say the rise of bands like Klaxons and Pendulum rekindled their love for all things “ravey”.

The group had already confirmed a festival appearance at The Big Chill on (August 8), and will also now perform at RockNess (June 13), Global Gathering (July 24-25). And they will follow up those performances with two shows of their own later in the year.

Orbital play the following headline shows:

Manchester Academy (September 19)

London Brixton Academy (25)
