Gold Coast, this is huge.
Today saw the announcement that Ministry of Sound’s Orchestrated will return this December with ‘The Strings Of Life Tour’, and it will be kicked off at our very own HOTA, Home of the Arts.
Joining some of Australia’s finest orchestras for this concert series will be guest vocalists Sam Sparro, Crystal Waters and Alison Limerick performing Orchestrated’s biggest shows to date.
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.
So who are the vocalists?
Grammy and ARIA Award nominated singer, songwriter and producer, Sam Sparro – the unique voice behind the multi-platinum single ‘Black and Gold‘, will be joining the tour as a guest vocalist. Alison Limerick returns to Orchestrated this December 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 ‘Where Love Lives‘ which went on to become a 90s phenomenon and global anthem. 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.
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.
