Underworld to broadcast Roundhouse gigs from website

Underworld

Story by Jack Foley

DANCE giants Underworld have teamed up with Apple/QuickTime to broadcast (free-to-air) all three of their forthcoming Roundhouse shows live from their website

Rick Smith and Karl Hyde will play three sold-out shows at the legendary London venue, the Roundhouse, from October 17 to 19.

Following on from their groundbreaking Web-TV broadcast from Cocoon Club (Frankfurt, 2006), Underworld have decided to mark the release of their latest studio album Oblivion With Bells by offering dans the live treat.

Long-time Underworld collaborator Simon Taylor (tomato) will be directing the broadcasts from the venue with the help of members of the Roundhouse Studios.

While the Roundhouse is perhaps best known as a music and performing arts venue, at its heart is the Roundhouse Studios, located beneath the Main Space, a creative space for young people with high quality equipment and facilities for young people to engage with artists, professionals and their peers in order to develop and realise their creative aspirations.

The broadcast will be live and available to all, for free at www.underworldlive.com from 8pm (UK time) on October 17, 18 and 19, 2007.
