The Chemical Brothers electronic music band will perform at the Tel Aviv Convention Center on November 12. Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, two British childhood friends from London, began playing together at parties in Manchester in the 1980s. They founded the Chemical Brothers in 1989 and had their first number one hit in 1996 with the single "Setting Sun," which featured vocals by Noel Gallagher then with Oasis.
Among their best-known songs are "Block Rockin' Beats," "Galvanize" and "Hey Boy, Hey Girls."
Their most productive and successful cooperation was with Michel Gondry, who directed many of their hit music videos such as "Let Forever Be," "Go," and Star Guitar." Among their other collaborators over the years were the Flaming Lips, Beck, Richard Ashcroft of the Verve, St. Vincent, rapper Q-Tip and Beth Orton.
The pair moved into other genres such as rave and psychedelic music, and has recorded eight studio albums, the latest of which "Born in the Echoes" was released last year. Their Tel Aviv stop is part of a tour promoting the album. They won four Grammys over their career.
They last visited Israel in 1998, when they performed in Latrun. Tickets will cost between 240 shekels ($62.40) and 600 shekels. The show is being produced by Shuki Weiss.
