Ministry of Sound recently announced the return of their orchestral tour The Annual Classical to London’s Royal Festival Hall on 4 October. The announcement comes on the back of a UK tour, which finished last week and apparently sold out shows across the country following the world premiere at the Royal Festival Hall in January. The show will also make its open-air debut at Chelmsford City Racecourse on 31 August.
The Annual Classical finds the dance brand celebrating and reimagining their dance music compilation ‘The Annual’ as an expansive orchestral reworking with a 50-piece orchestra, taking on classic tracks from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, Dario G, and more.
In addition, those in attendance can expect to see special guest vocalists, who first featured on the original dance tracks, performing as part of their new orchestral form. A special documentary celebrating The Annual has also been made, which is screened exclusively at The Annual Classical shows.
