Sat 3 Dec date for Hawtin's live techno show
One of the true innovators of techno, Richie Hawtin, will be bringing his live Plastikman 1.5 show to the Barrowland in Glasgow on Saturday 3 December 2011. One of only three UK dates, this hugely ambitious live electronica show was last seen in Scotland at T in the Park 12010, where every aspect of the performance (music, lighting, audio, visuals and real-time audience interaction via the SYNK App) are all controlled by Hawtin on stage.
'I'm incredibly excited to finally take Plastikman on its first standalone tour,' explains Hawtin. 'These dates will represent the last opportunities for fans to catch Plastikman Live in its current form: the 1.5 version of the show we've spent nearly a year of fine-tuning. After that, Plastikman will be returning to the shadows to begin work on a brand new 2.0 concept. The fall tour will be full of surprises, and the performance will continue to be spontaneous and unique for every show – the way I believe live music should be performed.'
Tickets go on sale 9am Fri Jul 22.
