This September, the Moby will launch his first European tour in ten years, celebrating the 25th anniversary of his renowned fifth studio album. The tour will feature a major performance in London at The O2.

The tour will kick off a day sooner with a performance at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on September 18, followed by a show in London the following day.

The tickets for the newly added Manchester date will be available for general purchase at 10 AM GMT this Friday (May 17). Tickets for the rest of the tour dates, if still available, can also be purchased at the same location.

Moby will be touring the UK and Europe in 2024, with dates scheduled as follows:

Released in 1999, his acclaimed fifth album features iconic songs like ‘Porcelain’, ‘Natural Blues’, and ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’.

The album has sold over 12 million copies globally, received various awards, and stands as the best-selling electronic album in history.

Moby shared his thoughts on returning to the stage after more than a decade: “It’s been over 10 years since my last tour, and with 2024 marking the 25th anniversary of ‘Play’, it seemed like a good opportunity to embark on a brief European tour to commemorate and celebrate this milestone.”

He noted that the concerts will highlight popular tracks from ‘Play’ along with other crowd favorites, including ‘Extreme Ways’, ‘We Are All Made Of Stars’, ‘When It’s Cold I’d Like to Die’, and classic rave hits like ‘Feeling So Real’ and ‘Go’.

Moby also revealed an altruistic aspect of the tour, stating, “The most thrilling part of this tour for me is that I won’t receive any payment. I will donate 100 percent of my profits to European animal rights organizations.”
