I’m so happy to be able to announce a string of UK dates in November 2018 with The Skaparis Orchestra, including a date at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Pre-sale tickets are available via Gigs & Tours this Thursday 5th April at 10am. The full tour will go on sale this Friday 6th April. See ticket links on the Tours page.
The regular band will be joined by The Skaparis Orchestra for 6 exclusive shows taking place in Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle, Manchester, London and Glasgow. The shows will feature songs drawn not only from the highly successful ‘Savage’ album, but also key songs from my back catalogue.
I have often felt that my music has had, at times, a filmic quality but, with The Skaparis Orchestra joining us for these six shows, that mix of hard electronic and soaring cinematic atmosphere will finally come fully to life. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to this come together.
In addition I will be showcasing the biggest and most extravagant light show that I’ve taken on the road for over three decades, designed specifically for these special orchestral performances. As an example, the video wall on the recent UK/Euro tour was around 8′ high. The orchestral shows will have a video wall nearer 20′ high, we’ll also have lasers and much, much more besides. I am genuinely excited about all of this.
