Tonight sees the return of Underworld. Following unprecedented demand for tickets to their 20th anniversary live performance of ‘dubnobasswithmyheadman’ album at London’s iconic Royal Festival Hall, the band announced a series of additional shows. These unique and intimate performances will take place throughout Europe, landing at den Atelier when they reach Luxembourg. Underworld will perform their classic landmark album ‘dubnobasswithmyheadman’ in full tonight, it was hailed as a game changer on its release at the start of 1994. Two decades on, it is unarguably one of the most influential British electronic records of all time – a signpost for everything from dance music’s easy relationship with festival main stages, to the radio and globe-conquering EDM phenomenon.
Continuing on the electronic front this week Etienne de Crécy plays Rockhal this Wednesday. After the release of his fourth studio album earlier this year ‘Super Discount 3’ he comes to Rockhal backed by his long-standing friends Alex Gopher and Julien Delfaud for the third episode of his legendary French touch sampler.
This Friday night Rockhal bring another legend to Luxembourg, this time it’s every hopeless romantics favourite man with a moustache, Lionel Richie. Lionel’s shows feature songs from one of the most loved repertoires in music spanning his entire career from the Commodores through to the present day, with songs like “Dancing On The Ceiling”, “Say You, Say Me”, “Hello”, “Three Times A Lady”, “Easy” and “All Night Long”. The show really does deliver on its promise of ALL THE HITS ALL NIGHT LONG.
Now time for some afro-post punk from Luxembourg’s No Metal in This Battle at Exit07 this Friday. The band is very much influenced by deep down Nigerian afro-beat, post-rock and math-rock mixed to a punk attitude. Their sound merges from an unlikely encounter between Tony Allen, 90 day men, Tortoise and Fugazi. Their live shows always turn into a spiritual and powerful sharing experience with their audience. They have supported the likes of !!! (CHK CHK CHK), Calibro 35, Minot (ex-Monument to Masses), God Is An Astronaut.
