One of the UK's most iconic bands, and with Mercury nominations, Brit awards and million-selling albums behind them, the Stereo MCs return to their hometown to open Ether in an event that takes over The Clore Ballroom and foyers of Royal Festival Hall. A very special collaboration sees the band joined by genre-busting, jazz/dance improvisers The Bays, as well as performing some of the songs from their six studio albums, most recently Double Bubble, that have made them talismanic figures in the UK dance scene. Plus DJ sets from producer and remixer extraordinaire Tom Middleton and eclectic party-starters Kid Fiesta, Horton Jupiter and AJ Holmes.
As you will be aware, English airspace has been closed due to volcanic ash spreading across the UK from Iceland. Unfortunately this has resulted in The Herbaliser being unable to reach London and extremely regrettably their appearance has had to be cancelled. Stereo MCs, The Bays and the rest of the line up continue to perform as advertised.
