Orbital @ Albert Hall

Following a short lived retirement Orbital are back on the road with a great live show and new album, Wonky.
The Albert Hall in London is usually known for hosting Classical events such as the Proms. It's also home to the Cirque de Soleil shows that take place every January.

I've seen Orbital here before back in '96 and remember it being quite hard to dance without fear of falling over the side of the atrium, and the same was true here. The music hasn't aged at all, but the audience clearly has and it was strange being in an older but still up-for-it crowd.

I didn't film anything or take photos, leaving it instead to others who were happy to keep their smartphones held up all night.
