French group AIR will take their seminal album ‘Moon Safari’ out on tour this coming Spring.
The duo released the album in 1998, and it seemed to strike a global chord. Part of a wave of French talent reconfiguring electronic music from fresh perspectives, the record gained exultant reviews and spawned a series of hit singles.
‘Kelly Watch The Stars’, ‘All I Need’ and ‘Sexy Boy’ cracked the charts, while the album itself sold millions of copies around the globe. With its 25th birthday approaching, AIR have decided to celebrate the album with a full tour.
The dates move around the continent – including a special night in Paris, and one of Amsterdam’s famed Paradiso – with AIR visiting London’s Coliseum on March 24th to play ‘Moon Safari’ in full.
Ticket pre-sale opens at 10am on Thursday (November 16th), before general sale opens at 10am the following day (November 17th).
AIR’s Jean-Benoît Dunckel comments: “We were a duo doing some electronic thing, dreaming of selling 10,000 copies and being recognised by other musicians as cool. Then suddenly, we met the world.”
This Friday – November 17th – will also witness the Apple Exclusive release of a Dolby Atmos Mix of ‘Moon Safari’, giving you an enhanced audio experience.
