Bastille announce ‘Reorchestrated’ tour for next spring

They’ll play dates in Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Sheffield and London.

Bastille have announced details of a new tour.

Titled ’Reorchestrated’, the dates across concert halls across the UK and European mainland will see the band perform alongside both string and brass sections and a choir.

“Earlier this year, we did a special one-off show to raise money for Streets of London,” explains frontman Dan Smith. “In it we deconstructed and totally rearranged 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.”

“We are incredibly excited to take that setup on the road for this Reorchestrated 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.”

The tour includes a date at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

10 Manchester O2 Apollo
11 Edinburgh Usher Hall
13 Bristol Colston Hall
14 Sheffield City Hall
16 London Royal Albert Hall
18 Utrecht Tivoli
19 Berlin Tempodrom
20 Lucerne Kultur und Kongresszentrum

Tickets are on sale from Friday 15th December.

Bastille released one-off track ‘World Gone Mad’ for the Will Smith film ‘Bright’ back in November, and recently guested on new Craig David single ‘I Know You’.
