The Orb will be celebrating their 25th anniversary in music this year by going on tour!
They emerged in 1988 from the acid house scene with their first release Tripping on Sunshine. Founded by Dr. Alex Paterson and Jimmy Cauty, they mixed samples of BBC nature recording and NASA space broadcasts into their music, they even got Steve Hillage to appear on some of their songs.
The 25th anniversary show will take place on October 19th at The Forum in London. Tickets are £15 each and it’s a late show going on until 4am! Supporting The Orb will be System 7, suggesting that Steve Hillage might take to the stage with The Orb! Tickets can be bought from The Forum website.
