Hacienda Classical is to return next year for three special dates in Glasgow, London, and of course Manchester. Returning with a brand new soundtrack, the a homecoming concert sees Mike Pickering, Graeme Park and Manchester Camerata back at Castlefield Bowl on Sat 1st July 2017.
As The Hacienda’s dance heritage collided with the world of classical music, reactions to the concerts have been widely celebrated with dates selling out – eight thousand strong – in minutes and great audience responses from the gigs.
Moving into its second year, the tour returns to venues that hosted this year’s inspirational nights, recreating the seminal tracks that defined a generation at the original club, renewed afresh and rearranged with a classical orchestra.
Following the success of the live shows “Hacienda Classical” the album is to be released this Friday 21st October by Sony Music. The LP features the full live set of this year’s concerts and includes versions of “Someday”, “You Don’t Know Me”, “String Of Live”/ Good Life as well as Rowetta’s stunning encore of “You Got The Love”.
