Selective Memory are delighted to bring their unique talent to Dublin for their first Irish indoor show since 2009.

Orbital, made up of Brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll recorded the seminal track ‘Chime’ on their dad’s cassette deck, they shot to rave stardom with their self-titled debut album in 1993, riding high in the UK album chart for fifteen consecutive weeks. Rated as one of the top 50 gigs of all time by Q Magazine, their 1994 Glastonbury show was televised on the BBC and is now seen as responsible for pushing dance music out from the underground and into the mainstream.
Orbital’s epic career has seen the release of nine innovative studio albums. Career highlights include their two self-titled releases, alongside 1996’s ‘In Sides’ and 1998’s ‘The Middle Of Nowhere’. Since the turn of the millennium, the band’s members have taken several breaks to pursue multiple solo projects – 2017 saw their most recent comeback, with the release of new single ‘Copenhagen’ and a return to the live circuit. Their performances at the Manchester O2 Apollo and the London Eventim Apollo sold out in record time.
