LADYTRON TOUR CHINA: (SEPT 20 OCT 8 2004)
Ladytron take their international-flavoured electronica to a new frontier this Autumn when they
visit China for a three week tour.
The Liverpool fourpiece will play major shows in Shenzen, Chongqing and
Shanghai (Liverpool¹s major twin city of the 21st century, probably the two
of the most exciting, fastest developing post-industrial cities in the
The tour is in association with the British Council, a partnership based on
the relevance of Ladytron¹s 21st century music, style and attitude to such a
radically evolving country and also the cultural links between Liverpool and
Shanghai. The cities twinned in 1999 but historical links go back to the
19th century when sailors established the UK¹s oldest Chinese community. Now
with both cities rapidly creating bold post-industrial futures (with
Liverpool looking ahead to 2008 as European Capital of Culture and Shanghai
to the World Expo of 2010), their links are stronger than ever.
"We've always had an international perspective, probably because of the
city, our different backgrounds and influences. Our first records were
released on a Japanese label and our first gig was in Paris, so getting to
play in China, and especially Shanghai, the Liverpool of the East, will be
great."- Danny Hunt
Ladytron will play a 5000 capacity live show in Fuxing Park and DJ set in
Shanghai, organised in partnership with Shanghai International Fashion
Centre and part of the Shanghai International Tourism Festival. In Shanghai,
they will be supported by Flower - one of China¹s most popular young bands
and Supermarket, China¹s first electronic band.
The tour starts with two nights at the True Color Club, Shenzhen (closest
city to Hong Kong), and another major outdoor event in Shapingba Park,
Chongqing (a city of over 30 million people).
Shenzen Sept 24th and 25th
Chongqing Sept 28th
Shanghai Oct 6th (DJ show Oct 7th)
The tour will be filmed for release on a DVD with the band¹s new album in
early 2005 and will be the first opportunity for the band to air their new
material, the follow-up to Rolling Stone magazine top 50 album of the year,
Light and Magic.
The visit to China will be followed next year with shows in all of
Liverpool¹s other twin cities - New York, Dublin, Cologne and Odessa.
