Pete Tong & the Heritage Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley, will bring a brand new Ibiza Classics show to the beautiful surroundings of Singleton Park on Saturday 27th July. Tickets will go on sale from 10am Friday 8th March through Ticketmaster.co.uk, 0844 844 0444 and locally through Derricks Records.
The hottest ticket of the summer returns to Wales, after last year’s sell out Cardiff Castle show, which sold out within the first 8 hours – with a brand new show for 2019 with re-workings of more iconic dance anthems.
The show is a must see for ravers, party animals and everyone who ever saw Ibiza as their Mecca, an irresistible combination of the UK’s most influential DJ with a 65 piece orchestra, a spectacular visual show with lasers and the biggest party anthems.
The concept first came to fruition after a lot of hard work and careful curation at the massively successful BBC Proms show at the Royal Albert Hall three years ago. Pete’s collaboration with the Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley went on to play arenas around the world, including the Hollywood Bowl and two sold out nights at the O2, and spawning the album Classic House, which sold over 200,000 copies and reached number one in the UK, and the follow-up, Pete Tong Ibiza Classics, which has so far amassed over 120,000 sales.
The show is once again being promoted by current Live UK regional promoter of year and three time winners Orchard Live; director Pablo Janczur said: “We absolutely loved the spectacle last year at Cardiff Castle and we can’t wait to bring the brand new show to Swansea this Summer for another unforgettable event in Wales; which will sure to evoke memories of Escape to the Park which was a massive Swansea institution.”
The event follows on from the previously announced Jess Glynne show which will take place the next night, Sunday 28th July. Pete Tong has been a massively influential figure in dance music over the past 20 years, predominantly as the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming. The Essential Mix continues to be the standard bearer of mix shows, and his Essential Selection is still the influential place to premiere new records. All Gone Pete Tong is a residency brand and cult classic film, as well, of course, as being widely used in rhyming slang.
