LADYTRON LIVE IN MANCHESTER – WHAT HAPPENED?

Nostalgia awaited all who made the effort to hit Manchester’s New Century Hall last night. Ladytron were back in action with their collection of electronica fused synth. The band are back with a new album released last year ‘Times Arrow’ which is their 7th studio album since forming back in Liverpool in the late 90’s.

Support came from the fantastic Manchester outfit LIINES, with a slightly altered LIINEUP (see what I did there…) in the form of Mr Simon Ding Archer on bass. There has been a real buzz about this support act as the band have built up a loyal fan base, many of whom were in the audience tonight judging from the sizeable crowd who had gathered early doors.

LIINES deliver post-punk noise with style and grace and have gone from strength to strength since winning the MEN’s breakthrough artist award back in 2020. Singer Zoe and Drummer Leila, teamed with Ding on bass prove that they are certainly ready to headline venues such as this and in all honesty were by far the best part of yesterday evening. I urge you to check out their latest adventures, including a set at Bearded Theory festival which I am certainly going to make time for that weekend! Head here for more LIINES news.

Ladytron hit the stage in style with lead singer Helen Marnie making a cool entrance alongside keyboardist Mira Aroyo. The crowd were well and truly warmed up and raring to go after an 808 state DJ set in the interlude.

One of the best features of this venue is the lighting system which stretches across the entire ceiling of the hall. For electronica acts such as Ladytron, it adds an exciting element and really adds another dimension to the performance.

The band, accompanied by a dummer and guitarist delivered a futuristic set with a trippy backdrop with Marine often disappearing into the psychedelic light show, only highlighted by the swirling orange beams which was pretty impressive to watch. The duo are undoubtably cool and have a strong stage presence, with Aroyo remaining calm and collected in contrast to Marnie’s eloquent dance moves across centre stage.

The band treated Manchester to one off gig but to keep up to date with all of Ladytron’s adventures check the link below.
