Bastille announce Re-orchestrated Tour

By | Published on Thursday 14 December 2017


Bastille have announced that they will head out on tour in April next year. But it’s not a tour like you’re thinking, with the band playing their songs like you’ve heard them on their albums. No, what fun would that be? Instead, the ‘Re-orchestrated Tour’ will see them performing with string and brass sections in tow.

“Earlier this year, we did a special one-off show to raise money for [homelessness charity] Streets Of London”, says the band’s Dan Smith. “In it we deconstructed and totally re-arranged a bunch of our songs using strings, brass, and a gospel choir. “It was one of my favourite things we’ve ever been able to do”.

He continues: “We are incredibly excited to take that set-up on the road for this Re-orchestrated tour, which will see us playing some amazing venues and concert halls around the UK and Europe. It makes for a very different kind of Bastille show where we totally reframe and reimagine our songs with the help of some incredible musicians, in a special and intimate setting”.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale on Friday. But when and where will they take place? Then and there:

10 Apr: Manchester, Apollo
11 Apr: Edinburgh, Usher Hall
13 Apr: Bristol, Colston Hall
14 Apr: Sheffield, City Hall
