A Day on the Green: The Chemical Brothers
Hey boy, hey girl: the iconic electronic greats are bringing their block rockin' beats back Down Under.
December 20, 2023
Don't hold back: one of the biggest acts in electronic music for the past three decades is returning to Victoria. Superstar DJs The Chemical Brothers dropped their tenth studio album For That Beautiful Feeling in September 2023, and will hit Mt Duneed Estate in March 2024 to unleash their latest round of block rockin' beats live.
Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons will play A Day on the Green in Geelong on Saturday, March 2, with The Presets (doing a DJ set), Anna Lunoe and James Holroyd in support.
It isn't just their astonishing 2023 Coachella set that proves The Chemical Brothers are a must-see live act. Every tour — including their last stint Down Under back in 2019 — always matches a spectacle of mindbending visuals to the duo's iconic tunes.
Accordingly, expect recent singles 'No Reason', 'Live Again' (featuring Halo Maud) and 'Skipping Like a Stone' (reteaming The Chemical Brothers with Beck after 2016's 'Wide Open') — and also a wealth of songs from a back catalogue that spans back to 1989. No, it wouldn't be a Chemical Brothers gig without 'Hey Boy, Hey Girl', 'Block Rockin' Beats' and 'Galvanise' getting a whirl.
The pair's current setlist also includes everything from 'Go', 'Swoon' and 'Star Guitar' to 'Setting Sun', 'Chemical Beats' and 'Escape Velocity'.
Holroyd joining Rowlands and Simons on the tour is always a given, as The Chemical Brothers' long-standing opening DJ.
