Groove Armada 25 - Live in Bristol

When: Friday 29th July 2022

Where: Amphitheatre And Waterfront Square in Bristol

The influential, chart-topping, Grammy nominated dance duo have announced their last-ever tour in 2022, after twenty five years in the business, with dates confirmed to happen in venues and at festivals across the UK and beyond throughout the year.

Spawned from a London-based club night of the same name in the 90s, Groove Armada, AKA Andy Cato and Tom Findlay, have since become one of most successful dance acts in British music history. With massive anthems such as 'At The River', their first-ever single, and 'Superstylin'' in their repertoire, it's easy to see why the pair have always been a welcomed addition to any lineup.

Bid these two icons of dance music a fond farewell at Bristol's Amphitheatre And Waterfront Square this July.
