    The band take their show on the road with an impressive 15 member live band for select dates in the U.S. and Europe this fall and will also hit the festival circuit in the spring and summer of '09

    so i guess itll be a 15 member band haha damn

    Thievery was one of the biggest surprises/delights of the lineup (for me)

    They have a great live show. I've seen them three times, with the first being the best (5 yrs ago) and each performance after that getting a little less to my liking. Over the years they've really gone in a more rasta direction when playing live. They used to utilize more female singers and played a more "worldly" mix. Still a great show, but I'm just a bit disappointed in the direction they have gone. I'm actually going to see them in Chicago later this month too.

    If you haven't seen them, check them out.

    Thievery C. grooves...very excited to see them.

    also...Perry Farrell does a song with them called Revolution Solution. I wonder if he'll jump on stage for a quick one?

    I've seen them a few times (once back in 2006 at Bang Music Fest). They were fantastic! Same sort of style as Massive Attack...but, they have a lot more instruments. They are called Thievery Corp because they steal musical influences from all over the world. They are in my top 10 live shows.

    The Outdoor Theater set I saw was excellent. I think they had just released "The Richest Man In Babylon". I would recommend seeing this, hopefully during sundown. I could almost compare their live set to Groove Armada's full band performance, but Thievery's band is bigger. Their newest album isn't their strongest in my opinion, but they have a lot of great music.

    I saw Thievery do a live show in 2006 in DC, it was terrific. The energy that them and the live band bring is terrific. Hearing "Warning Shots" performed live was absolutely insane.

    I remember they performed an acoustic version "Richest Man in Babylon", and then closed with "Marching The Hate Machines (into the sun)", which to this day is one of the best concert closers i've ever experienced.

    As of now, they're the best live act Saturday has to offer. See them at all costs!

    I had the same experience when i saw them, less songs with female vocalists and more of the reggae sound

    This was one show I had to miss in 2008 because there was too much happening the same week.

    My friends saw them in Dallas, and also at Rothbury, they were saying really good things. Great set list too. I'm very psyched to finally see them.

    Exclamation Re: Thievery Corporation

    sooooooooo much fun

    it's not like their albums at all. I love their recorded stuff, but that's more chill out music. Live is a non stop party with dancers and many singers, i think a rapper or two, reggae songs, etc. it's a huge mix and its fantastic. I thought they upstaged the Flaming Lips when I saw them open for em at the Hollywood Bowl.

    Don't miss it. Will be a highlight of Saturday for sure

    I saw them in San Francisco on New Years Eve.
    Eclectic band and singers...they were definitely groovin' with them on the turntables with a live band and different singers.
    Nothing like what I came to know them as...worldly, chill music. Chill, this was not!

    I don't see them in Sahara though...probably main stage like Kraftwerk last year.
