Followinggreat critical acclaim and phenomenal demand FAC 51 The Haçienda and Manchester Camerata, the city’s experimental orchestra are bringing back Haçienda Classical in 2017 with a brand new soundtrack for the concerts for a run of new shows
With the first run of dates announced last year seeing the returns to Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl and London’s Royal Albert Hall fully sold out, in addition to concerts in Leeds, Glasgow and Newcastle, a further four dates can now be revealed as Hacienda Classical comes to Kew Gardens, Lytham Festival, Liverpool’s Hope & Glory Festival and Brighton Racecourse across July, August and September.
First up is Hacienda Classical at Kew The Music, only its third ever London concert at Kew Gardens as part of the long running music festival on Friday 14th July whilst the show comes to Lytham Festival on Thursday 3rd August, Liverpool’s Hope & Glory Festival on Sunday 6th August and Brighton Racecourse on Saturday 9th September.
Other previously dates for the new set include Leeds First Direct Arena on Friday 14th April, the SSE Hydro Glasgow on Saturday 24th April and Live From Times Square Newcastle on Friday 4th August.
The set list will be kept under wraps until the opening night but Graeme Park who has put together the soundtrack alongside Mike Pickering reveals that the tunes for the second year will mark a move forward for the club meets classical event: “It would have been easy to keep most of last year’s set list, but as we dug deep into the rich seam of classic tunes that were big at The Haçienda it became clear that there are so many tracks that deserve the unique classical treatment. I also think that last year’s show was so successful and inspiring that we should move forward rather than resting on our laurels.”
