Underworld are a true one-off, who are just as at home headlining the world’s biggest festivals and events, as they are playing underground techno clubs, sound-tracking theatre productions or taking over art galleries.
Having cemented their place in the 1990s underground techno scene, the group’s definitive breakthrough came in 1996 when their timeless anthem Born Slippy (Nuxx) became the soundtrack of a generation after it was featured in the film Trainspotting.
The success of that single catapulted the band – Rick Smith and Karl Hyde – from the underground into the heart of the mainstream. The following two decades saw them build on that success while never compromising.
Underworld have sold millions of albums, performed countless sold-out shows, provided scores to productions by Academy Award winning directors Anthony Minghella and Danny Boyle, as well as sound-tracking the Opening Ceremony to the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The critical and commercial success of the band’s Grammy nominated 2016 album Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future saw them headline stages at Glastonbury and Summer Sonic. Notable live moments from 2023 include a sold-out Royal Albert Hall in London, a crowd-rousing Coachella set in Palm Springs, and headline slots at festivals around Europe.
Underworld join Sheryl Crow, Tom Jones, Rick Astley, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Jess Glynne, Fatboy Slim, PJ Harvey, Tom Odell, Pixies, IDLES, Richard Ashcroft, McFly, Loyle Carner and Status Quo among the headliners for Live at The Piece Hall 2024 – with many more to be announced.
The Halifax show is co-promoted by The Piece Hall Trust and Cuffe and Taylor. Nicky Chance-Thompson MBE DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “The courtyard will be bouncing when we welcome these legends of electronic music next year.
Their iconic anthems have had dancefloors moving right round the globe since the 90s and there’ll be non-stop hands in air moments when they bring their huge sounds to our iconic venue.”
