FRENCH electronic music pioneers Air will pay tribute to their iconic debut album when they head to West Yorkshire this summer.

Twenty-five years after its release, Air will play Moon Safari live in its entirety during a headline gig at Live at The Piece Hall 2024 in Halifax on June 26. 

Organisers described Moon Safari as a "cult classic" and a "perfect record from the golden era of French electronic music - a masterful fusion of downtempo with the rich heritage of chanson française".

Its release catapulted Air - consisting of Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel - to fame, millions of sales and sell-out world tours, with tracks like Sexy Boy, All I Need and La Femme d’Argent lodging themselves in the public subconscious during the late-1990s.

Air will join a number of acts - including Tom Jones, Grace Jones, Sheryl Crow and Jess Glynne - at this year's Live at The Piece Hall.

Nicky Chance-Thompson, chief executive of The Piece Hall Trust, said: "Moon Safari is such an iconic album and I know so many people have very special memories of listening to it on repeat in the final years of the last millennium."

Tickets go on sale via at 9am on February 16.
