Chemicals in the Sahara would be better.
They know how to utilize the surround sound and have such epic moments like that bass drop transition at the beginning of escape velocity, or during under the influence. Even outdoors, it sounded like an airplane was landing on the crowd, the bass would build from the back then sweep up to the front, I can only imagine how incredible this would be in a tent with surround sound. Also the screen is not insanely over the top huge. With the amount of people that will most likely be at KoL, the Sahara would be the pristine perfect spot for a chemical indulgence. Almost makes me want to go 3000 miles for this performance alone.
They will definitely close with TPPR, which so so fucking cool.
Another one from the Fox show.
I want my planet BAAAAAAACK *WHRRRRIIIIII WHURRRRRRRR*
I woke up with Galvanize stuck in my head. This really isn't a bad thing.
Regardless, I HIGHLY doubt that the Chemical Brothers will play before 10 pm.

Basically, what this would do would close options for Paul T really early on in the process. Paul T has also said in interviews how long and where they play rarely, if ever, enter the negotiations. Madonna was a notable exception.
this is a really good point. they put tons of work into the physical/visual sensation of their live show. giving them the sahara would allow for all sorts of crazy, indescribable rotating/swooping sound effects. mainstage would be more of a spectacle, but you know their visuals are gonna be off the hook anyway. i think letting them take full advantage of the Sahara's surround sound & lighting systems is the right move.Originally Posted by grannock

Pretty Safe to say that Kele will join them on Believe...
that new show they have is neat! they have a cylindrical arrangement of lights right above their decks
1) Grab your headphones
2) Increase volume as loud as you can
2) Go to 8:20
I was surprised when they played this because it was an unnamed track before these 2011 dates. Got played at a DJ set in Milan last year. It was one of the last unnamed tracks after those other unnamed played tracks got legit names( Escape Velocity, Pourquoi)
Gives me chills! It's almost like Coachella 2005 over again!
Snow --> STA --> Hoops/EBW6 --> TPPR
Snow meshes so well with STA, it gives new life to the track, but more importantly, the Bros bring back Hoops/EBW 6 AND TPPR for the most insane encore ever IMO! Add to this the new visuals and a new setlist makes this the most anticipated Chem show for me ever!
Old story but still good.
Chemical Brothers stop clowning around
The Chemical Brothers have been forced to tone down the disturbing clown images used during their live shows after complaints from fans.
The creepy clowns with bad teeth and smeared make-up - displayed extensively on giant screens during The Chems' sold out 2008 Auckland show - will only be used sparingly when the British dance duo begin their new world tour in New Zealand in March.
Ed Simons said he and Tom Rowlands had decided to "tone down" the clowns after hearing from fans who didn't like the characters, who sing along to songs like Get Yourself High and Do It Again throughout their live performances.
"The clowns have been toned down a bit," Simons told Stuff.co.nz.
"There's a lot of coulrophobia (fear of clowns) about. People were running (away), especially at the more druggy festivals. They (were) like, 'Oh, that was too much.'
"There are still clowns. They're more friendly this time."
Simons said he and Rowlands - known for creating psychelic-tinged electronica since 1995's debut Exit Planet Dust - were looking forward to returning to New Zealand as it was the perfect place to kick off their world tour.
"New Zealand's been great to us, right back when we played the Big Day Out in 2000. We hadn't been that far from home to play before and it's always good to go back," he said.
"Our tour last time was fantastic ... it's a fantastic place."
The Chems' 2008 tour was a head-spinning mix of the band's thumping electronica and a trippy audio-visual show that included strobes, lasers and giant video backdrops.
Simons said their new tour would have a more "integrated" feel to it.
"The new album was made alongside the visuals (and) it's nice how this works with the older stuff," he said.
"We still rely on volume and bright lights and the crowd. The memorable thing is to experience our music at really high volume and with people losing it, that sense of transcendence, being taken to another place, and the hedonism of it."
Further, their seventh album, has marked a change for the duo, who opted not to include guest vocalists - who infused previous hits like rapper Fatlip on The Salmon Dance and Noel Gallagher on Let Forever Be - in favour of crafting a full length album experience.
Simons said Further had been a freeing album to make.
"Some of our bigger hits haven't had guest vocalists, like Hey Boy, Hey Girl and Star Guitar. I think people who've been with us for a long time have enjoyed an album that's looser.
"I'm really glad you can hear a lot of the synth work in our new music."
Simons said current dance music trends - like the blossoming dubstep scene - had influenced the album, but the duo were always trying to create unique music.
"We're not slaves to any trends but we're pretty up on who's producing what. We want to make music that's authentic to us. If we made music that was copying the sounds of 22-year-old kids we'd sound inauthentic."
The pair still DJ'd gigs separately, but Simons said they were looking forward to touring their new album together.
"That bass drum is still thudding away, and it doesn't show any sign of stopping."

Booo. I like the scary clowns.
And that's a terrible video clip. As always refer to Glastonbury + the BBC footage.
Get Yourself High + Do It Again = I don't give a shit what's on the screen as long as those songs are played
yeah, get yourself high/superflash/TPPR are great adds to the set list. i can't wait to see this live show again and see how different it is from what i saw at the hollywood bowl!
