The waterfront lawns at Wrest Point will be a sea of picnic blankets when the beats of Ministry of Sound and the TSO waft over the Derwent this December.
Wrest Point, in conjunction with Frontier Touring & Soapbox Events, is thrilled to announce that Ministry of Sound’s Orchestrated will visit Hobart on Saturday, 8 December with ‘The Strings Of Life Tour’.
Joining the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra for this concert will be guest vocalists Sam Sparro, Crystal Waters and Alison Limerick with special guest DJ John Course.
As a celebration of the most beloved dancefloor moments of the past 25 years, Orchestrated rearranges, remixes and reimagines classic tracks with a live symphony orchestra and special guest vocalists for a night of pure celebration. Featuring classic dance hits from the likes of Fatboy Slim, Moby, Eric Prydz and Robert Miles, Orchestrated is guaranteed to provide an unforgettable evening.
The December show will be a debut for Ministry of Sound Orchestrated in Hobart with the panoramic waterfront setting allowing patrons to enjoy the experience under the stars in a picturesque location.
Grammy and ARIA Award nominated singer, songwriter and producer, Sam Sparro – the unique voice behind the multi-platinum single ‘Black and Gold’ – joins the tour as a guest vocalist. Sparro has collaborated with the likes of Mark Ronson, Kylie Minogue, Aluna George, Basement Jaxx, Nile Rodgers, Adam Lambert and Honey Dijon, amongst others and recently wrapped up a hugely successful national tour.
Alison Limerick returns to Orchestrated following a standout performance earlier this year at the Sydney Opera House. Limerick released debut album And Still I Rise in March 1992, that same year she won Best Female Artist at the international DMC Awards and has continued to release a string of hit singles including ‘Time Of Our Lives’ and ‘Where Love Lives’, the latter of which went on to become a 90s phenomenon and global anthem.
Limerick continues to record and sing live and can be found singing soul/jazz in various venues across Europe. Her latest collaboration, the track ‘Bye Bye’ with New York DJ Lenny Fontana is out now and includes the recent Phats & Small remix.
Best known for 1991’s ‘Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless)’ and 1994’s ‘100% Pure Love’, Crystal Waters makes for an exciting addition to the line-up. Her accolades include three American Music Award nominations, an MTV Video Music Award nod, four Billboard Music Awards and six ASCAP Songwriter Awards.
Joining the Hobart show will be legendary house music DJ John Course (DJ set).
In what will be a nostalgic throwback to some of the greatest party anthems of all time, Orchestrated is sure to generate some serious foot movement bringing friends together to relive the heady days of clubbing in a true celebration of dance music, truly a night to remember from start to end as it makes its way across the country.
Tickets are 18+ and go on sale to the general public on Monday 6 August (10am local time) .
