Spiritualized Return To Albert Hall

Given that Royal Albert Hall October 10 1997 is one of our favourite live albums of all time, we're pleased that Spiritualized are returning to the hallowed venue.

Here's what the good folk at ATP had to say:

"With the demise of his first band, the hugely influential Spaceman 3, singer guitarist J Spaceman A/K/A Jason Pierce opted to go it alone under the moniker of Spiritualized, producing space age music for far out people best exemplified on their classic 1997 album 'Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space'. The albums that have followed; 'Amazing Grace', 'Live at the Royal Albert Hall', 'Let it Come Down' and the new one 'Songs in A&E', have continued the ever present themes of alienation and loss supported by a psychedelic soundscape imitated by many but mastered by only one.

ATP Concerts are very pleased to present Spiritualized at the world renowned Royal Albert Hall, London on 11th October 2011. Tickets for this show go on sale this Friday 11th March at 9am.

ARTIST: Spiritualized SUPPORT: tbc VENUE: Royal Albert Hall DATE: Tuesday 11th October 2011 ADVANCED TICKET PRICE : £22.50-£32.50 + bf"
