Spiritualized will perform their classic album Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space live in its entirety at the Royal Festival Hall, London on Monday 12th October 2009.
Tickets cost £27.50 / £32.50 + bf and go on sale this Thursday 19th March from 10am.
This very special show will feature a choir, string and horn sections and special guests. It is 12 years since the release of this album set the summer of 1997 on fire. Receiving massive critical acclaim, it was hailed as an instant classic, winning NME’s album of the year in 1997 (beating Radiohead’s OK Computer), and reaching No.4 in the UK charts.
To tie in with the live performance, Sony Music will be releasing an expanded Legacy Edition of “Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space” in October with added content and new packaging.
This show is part of the Don’t Look Back season from British festival and concert promoters All Tomorrow’s Parties.

Don't Look Back has expanded in recent years to include concerts in mainland Europe, Australia and the USA. This year’s UK season also includes shows from Devo, Young Marble Giants and Sleep.
