Hacienda Classical - Newcastle on Friday 4th August 2017
HACIENDA CLASSICAL LIVE FROM TIMES SQUARE NEWCASTLE CONCERT ANNOUNCED FOR AUGUST 2017
“A near two hour blend of house music's greatest players with an audience dancing and singing from the off. Dazzling mirror-ball speckles are flung out over a crowd whose jubilant euphoria almost blows the roof off.' - Mixmag
'Probably the best rave since 1997. A night of soaring synth riffs, euphoric drops, massive tunes.' NME
'The atmosphere was incredible.' The Times - Five Stars
Following great 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 shows
The first set of dates were announced last month with the returns to Manchester Castlefield Bowl and London's Royal Albert Hall both fully selling out. In addition to these shows, Hacienda Classical will now come to Newcastle's Times Square on Friday 4th August 2017, visiting the city for the first time.
The Newcastle event forms part of the 'Live From Times Square' series of concerts and also performing on other nights at Times Square include Jake Bugg and James with more acts to be announced.
The incredible show sees the DJ's who shaped The Haçienda's sound – Mike Pickering and Graeme Park - collaborate with the Camerata for a night of classic dance music, innovatively adapted and arranged especially for the occasion.
As The Hacienda's dance heritage collided with the world of classical music, the concerts have been widely praised with dates selling out 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 as well as new locations, recreating the seminal tracks that defined a generation at the original club, renewed afresh and rearranged for a classical orchestra.
Music Genres: Acid House, Classical, House, Old Skool, Retro House
