Hacienda Classical has announced a run of shows taking place later this year.
The live event, a concert which sees orchestral renditions of much loved classic club records from The Hacienda’s heritage performed on stage, will make four additional stops in the UK this summer and beyond - with the sold-out, rescheduled Manchester performance featuring as part of the mini tour.
The first event, which will take place in Blackpool on the 29th August, before the Castlefield Bowl Manchester event takes place in September, with two additional dates on the 15th and 16th October taking place at London's Printworks and Glasgow's SSE Hydro Arena. A final stop in Manchester — the home of the original Hacienda — will take place on Friday the 12th November at the city's epic Mayfield Depot venue.
Speaking about the tour, DJ Graeme Park, who performs alongside Manchester's Camerata orchestra as Hacienda Classical, said: “After a year of frustration, I'm excited that Haçienda Classical is back to thrill the nation with positivity and love. I've never been more ready to return to the stage with the whole crew to share the joy with some big new songs as well as some massive favourites too. I'm pretty sure the country is ready to share the love too.”
Tickets for all dates apart from Castlefield Bowl will go on general sale Thursday 8th April at 10AM. Register now for the pre-sale, which takes palce on Wednesday 7th April at 10AM, via www.fac51-thehacienda.com
Last year, The Hacienda was voted one of the UK's top historic sites, despite the fact the warehouse that once housed the Manchester club no longer exists. You can head back to the club’s heydey with these amazing photos from The Haçienda.
