Legendary DJ Pete Tong will be taking The Heritage Orchestra back out on the road to perform a brand new outdoor Ibiza Classics show this summer and will head to Durham in July.
Taking place at Durham Emirates Riverside on Friday 26th July, this major North East date follows a huge sold out UK tour, including two dates at London’s vast O2.
Tong, famed as the voice of Radio 1’s dance programming, will once again team up with conductor Jules Buckley and a 65 piece Heritage Orchestra for the brand new production.
“Ibiza Classics has got bigger and better each year,” says Tong.
“2019 is no exception. Expect a bigger production, more special guests and some of the best tracks to come out of Ibiza in the past 20 years.”
The show takes some of the biggest dance floor fillers and classics from the Balearic island, and reinvents them with an orchestral sound, conducted by Jules Buckley.
SSD Concerts’, Steve Davis continues: “This is a massive coup for the region and for Durham. Pete Tong has been a legend of the electronic scene for decades now and this is going to be an outdoor show like no other.
“Tickets are going to go fast for this one so we recommend getting in there early.”
There are few individuals in the world of dance music who can claim the kind of influence Pete Tong has had over the last twenty years.
As the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming, Pete has held a commanding presence over the industry for more than two decades. His unique position has earned him a reputation as the global ambassador of dance music.
With an unparalleled ear for new talent, Tong has become the leading tastemaker of the electronic generation. While he’s known publicly as Pete Tong the DJ, behind the scenes, he’s an industry icon.
Over the years, he’s played a crucial role in breaking new artists and changing the way people think about electronic music.
With his new found home in Los Angeles, the British icon is looking to revolutionise the perception of dance music in America but first, he will head to Durham and the home of Durham County Cricket Club for a live outdoor music spectacular.
