Orbital played first U.S. show in six years at Brooklyn Steel (pics)

UK dance greats Orbital hit Brooklyn Steel on Tuesday, one of just a few U.S. shows that are their first here in six years. Though they released new album Monsters Exist, Phil and Paul Hartnoll stuck mainly to tracks from Orbital’s first two classic LPs, with an emphasis on their second LP that made up half their set. They worked in Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth” and disco anthem “I Will Survive” as well. As you’d expect from Orbital, there was a killer light show too.

Pictures from the Brooklyn Steel show are in the gallery above and you can watch video below.

Orbital play San Francisco tonight (12/6) and Los Angeles on Saturday (12/8). You can also read about what Paul and Phil are listening to these days.
