Bastille have announced the Reorchestrated Wild World Tour for April 2018, opening with a Manchester gig at the O2 Apollo.
The eight date tour, which includes five UK shows, sees the band performing with an orchestra and choir showcasing reworkings of their number 1 albums Wild World and Bad Blood.
The tour was inspired by the Union Chapel show in May of this year for the Streets of London Charity where Bastille’s performance featured a choir and strings, a powerful departure from their Wild World arena shows.
Frontman Dan Smith explains “Earlier this year, we did a special one-off show to raise money for Streets of London, 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.”
