After months without live music, a non-existent festival season and more cancelled gigs than you can shake one of Bez’s maracas at, it’s pretty great to have a live show to get excited for again.

What better than an orchestral rendition of The Beatles, then, courtesy of Manchester’s own Untold Orchestra? Having had to cancel the majority of their 2020 shows, we expect they’re just as excited as us.

Performing renditions of Beatles’ classics like Can’t Buy Me Love, Here Comes the Sun and Got To Get You Into My Life, the collection of classical, pop and jazz musicians will be joined on stage by singers Jenna G, Will Jaquet, Phoebe Taylor and Dominic Lawson.

A live orchestral rendition of The Beatles' greatest hits is coming to Manchester I Love Manchester

Held at Freight Island, Manchester’s new purpose-built socially distanced venue, it’ll be a safe and seated affair with tables available to book from 6pm on Tuesday 8th September.

The Untold Orchestra has worked on various joint projects: recording with Grammy Award-winning Bill Laurance (Snarky Puppy) and staging a one-off MIF performance with Manchester rapper Skittles and his 8 Gold Rings band.

Previous shows Nina: An Orchestral Rendition and 50 Years of Abbey Road: An Orchestral Rendition have been sell-outs, and we don’t expect this one to be any different.

Tickets are available online from £15 and are already going fast, so we hear.
