Chase and Status announce highly-anticipated UK tour with just three dates — and one of them is Manchester Danny Jones
Drum and bass icons Chase and Status have just announced a brand-new limited-run UK tour with just three dates and, lucky for us, Manchester is one of them.
Still one of the biggest electronic artists on the planet and comfortably up there with one of the best acts we’ve ever seen live, the production and DJ duo (Saul Milton and Will Kennard) are hitting the road early next year and they’ll be gracing the O2 Victoria Warehouse.
With the boys not only bringing a full live band along with them for the ride but also set to release their new mixtape, 2 Ruff. Vol 1, the crowd will be treated to both the classics and all the new tracks to boot.
To be honest, we’d pay ridiculous money just to hear that new ‘Baddadan’ track in the flesh.
With the new record dropping on Friday, 27 October, just over a year after their previous and sixth studio album, What Came Before, the 10-track mixtape is set to feature massive collaborations with Flowdan, Arrdee, Stefflondon; Becky Hill, long-time friend and collaborator Takura, as well as many others.
Everything we’ve heard so far has been an absolute banger and we can only imagine how amazing these new tracks are going to sound in a live space as good as the legendary Victoria Warehouse.
I mean, these lads spent time here at university so they know full well just how special a venue this is.
Bringing along a number of special guests for each date — sorry, they haven’t let any info slip just yet — the London-based artists will be playing the Cardiff Utilita Arena and London Drumsheds in February 2024 before rounding things off with the main event: Manchester on Friday 1st March.

This is going to be sick, we just know it.
While pre-sale sold out in a flash, general admission tickets go live today at 9:00am (Friday, 29 September), so you better be quick if you fancy getting some.

An adults-only ‘after hours’ event is happening at the Science and Industry Museum next week Emily Sergeant
If you need an excuse to leave the little Mancs at home, then one of Manchester’s most visited museums might have just what you’re looking for.
Fancy releasing your inner child?
If you’re keen to play your way through 50 years of video games, embark on an adventure through the digestive system, or relax with a drink while discovering the small matter of the infinite vastness of the universe, then you’ll probably want to make your way down to the Science and Industry Museum next week.
With the nights drawing earlier than ever now autumn is here, this is your chance to explore the museum in a whole new light after the sun’s gone down.
Back by popular demand, the beloved cultural destination – which has just recently celebrated its 40th year in the heart of Manchester city centre – is hosting another of its special ‘after hours’ for adults next week.
It’s giving grown-ups a unique opportunity to make the most of all the museum’s best-loved exhibitions without the kids running around.
Kicking off from 6pm next Thursday 5 October, tickets to the one-off Museum After Hours event are now on sale, and include evening passes to the museum’s showstopping special exhibitions ‘Power Up’ and ‘Operation Ouch! Food, Poo and You’, as well as access to the popular Revolution Manchester, Textiles Gallery, and Experiment areas.
There’ll also be the chance to see Paul Miller’s MicroCosmic installation, as well as talk to the artist himself, and get involved with lots of drop-in activities too.
Several exciting textile demonstrations will also be taking place throughout the evening.
And of course, because this is an adults-only event, the museum’s events bar will be popping up on the night, and will be serving up a wide range of wines, beers, and non-alcoholic drinks to wet your whistle while you’re looking around.
- Science and Industry Museum celebrates its 40th birthday
- Manchester has been named the ‘most inspiring’ city in the UK – and this is why
- Manchester Museum has returned 174 cultural heritage items to Australian Aboriginal communities
Museum After Hours is happening on Thursday 5 October from 6pm-9pm, with tickets setting you back £10 each or £8 for consessions.
