Exclusive: Fifty pairs of Moby tickets to give away

He shuns us for ten years, then plays two evenings. On Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 July, DJ-producer Moby embarks on a mini-tour of Manchester, stopping off at venues such as The Ruby Lounge, Cup, Cloud 23 and Sankeys to play his first gigs in the city in a decade.

The venue-hopping schedule has been designed to reflect the theme of his new concept album, Last Night, which he says is all about long, messy nights on the town with his NYC friends.

Says Moby: “It represents going out in New York City, which, for better or worse, I spend a lot of time doing. I wanted it to somehow capture the feeling of having, you know, a long night out, because going out is so complicated. In the UK or in New York it starts at 8 o'clock at night and it finishes at 8 o'clock in the morning and a lot happens in between and by the end of the night, things are kind of blurry.”

We know the feeling.

The event we're interested in though is the one down at Ruby Lounge. This is a fine and dandy venue which won a poll on Moby's website for the perfect location for a stripped down 45 minute set. Doors open at 8pm.

If you don't know The Ruby Lounge, it's a doll: a bespoke 375 capacity live music venue bang in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter. It describes itself as:'Flash without being showy. Lived in without being beat up. Rock'n'Roll without being clichéd. Timeless but not tired. The Ruby Lounge nods from the 21st century to all those perfect 1950s Lounges and to a time where live venues gave a damn about the people enjoying them.'

Crikey. But it's perfect for the Moby shows.

As the man himself says '“I just like going to small clubs and playing or DJing,” he says. “Every night is different and you also get to have contact with people who are coming to see you."

By the way The Ruby Lounge is at 28-34 High Street, Northern Quarter, City. M4 1QB.
