While the real Fatboy Slim—aka Norman Cook—was performing inside the iconic venue (colloquially known as Ally Pally), the massive hologram above rose to a height of over 160 feet, suspended from two cranes.
The cutting-edge performance was sponsored by UK cellular network EE, who also live-streamed the performance on their Instagram page. It was Fatboy Slim’s first at Alexandra Palace since a sold-out show in June.
Prior to the show, Fatboy Slim invited fans to submit their own homemade dance routines for his hit 1998 track “Praise You.” A lucky few fans were then featured in the sky as virtual backup dancers, when the platinum-selling selector played the tune in his set, which also included favorites like “Right Here, Right Now” and “The Rockafeller Skank.”
“Last night was a wild ride! We took over London’s skyline and made history,” Fatboy Slim said in a statement upon the show’s conclusion. “A massive shout out to all those fans who joined me on the world’s biggest holographic stage to kickstart a brand-new era for EE.”
The landmark accomplishment comes in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his former UK number-one album You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby. Fatboy Slim released a special anniversary edition of the album earlier this month.
