Downtown L.A.'s new Ace Hotel is set to open Jan. 6, and they're preparing to celebrate with a mighty, beautiful noise.

The experimental British group Spiritualized will convene a full orchestra, choir and band to re-create its landmark 1997 album "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space" on Feb. 14 at the new hotel's theater. It will be the first performance in the new space, a concert co-promoted by Goldenvoice and FYF.

Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m., and run $59-$169.

The new venue is just a block away from the Orpheum Theatre, and taken with Spaceland Productions' Mitchell Frank's long-delayed but still forthcoming Regent Theater on Main Street, it signals a revitalization of downtown L.A.'s concert scene that's set apart from the L.A. Live/Staples Center complex.

The Palm Springs Ace Hotel is a staple of Coachella regulars and after-partiers. A major new music and nightlife complex from the mini-chain, on a newly-bustling block of Broadway, will further bolster the neighborhood's entertainment cache.

It will also be the loudest Valentine's Day date you could ask for, so make sure a good pair of earplugs is included with your gift stash.
