The Chemical Brothers announce Australian tour presented by inthemix

Nearly 20 years into their career and the pull of UK duo The Chemical Brothers still stands out as strong as ever. Already in 2010 we’ve seen fans of the big beat pioneers swoon – delicious punning! – over the seventh Chemical Brothers album, Further, and praise their live show by voting the ‘Chems as one of dance music’s 30 greatest live acts. Well, for those hoping, praying and holding their breath for a local return from the duo of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons the wait is over!

Yes, you read correctly, The Chemical Brothers are coming back to Australia and proudly presented by inthemix! Having wowed local audiences with their headline slot on the Future Music Festival back in 2008, the legendary UK pair will be bringing their sensory-altering live set-up back to Australia in 2011.

“It’s always exciting for us to come back to Australia,” ‘Chems mainstay Tom Rowlands told inthemix in the duo’s first Australian interview. “As our music has progressed our live show has moved onwards too. It should be fun to bring our big psychedelic extravaganza to somewhere that’s as up for it as Australia always is.”

Brought to us by the crew over at Future Entertainment, The 2011 Chemical Brothers tour will hit in the first week of March, which sounds to us like it will be the super-sized grand finale to a keenly awaited summer party season. We can barely hold in our excitement.

Check below for all of the Chemical Brothers Australian concert dates, proudly supported by inthemix, of course. While you’re there, make sure to watch the sumptuous clip for Swoon and don’t forget to check out ITM’s exclusive interview with The Chemical Brothers over here too! ‘Chems fever!
