News: 808 State announce huge hometown show at Manchester O2 Ritz

808 STATE will return for a LIVE hometown show at Manchester’s O2 Ritz this Winter, which is sure to be the best pre-Christmas party of the year.

Following their phenomenal appearance at Manchester Academy in December 2018 and a mesmeric live set at Bluedot Festival and at the Warehouse Project last year, the Acid House originals – turned pioneering electronic icons are planning another late night pre-Christmas affair to see out 2020 with a resonant bang. 

Taking place on Friday 18th December 2020, Messrs Graham Massey and Andrew Barker, accompanied by live drummer Carl Sharrocks, will play a full headline 808 State set, with support performances from Manchester-based Ghanaian/Russian/German DJ & producer maverick Afrodeutsche plus DJ sets from Jackson Massey + Porchcrawler. 

“So many plans unravelled during the past few weeks, and for good reason. But looking ahead, today we are pleased to announce this Hometown Xmas bash, which will be a family affair with our very special guest Afrodeutsche. Hoping we can gather safely in the winter and emerge with a fresh perspective into 2021” – 808 State

The show follows a surge in activity for 808 State since their last Manchester appearance; a period that most notably witnessed the release of their seventh album: ‘Transmission Suite’ in late 2019.
