Ministry of Sound have announced The Annual Classical, an orchestral tour re-imagining their legendary dance compilation The Annual, taking in Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall.

23 years on from the debut compilation release, Ministry of Sound will take a 50 piece classical orchestra across the UK performing The Annual Classical. There will be a world premier at London’s Royal Festival Hall on January 26th, with a full six-date UK tour starting in May 2019.  The tour will call in at major cities across the country.

The tour will include some of the biggest dance tracks from the 90s, which have featured on early chart topping The Annual compilations. It will see the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim and Dario G all re-imagined with an orchestral makeover.

To celebrate Ministry of Sound’s The Annual, a documentary has been made celebrating the compilation series. It features interviews with the DJs who launched their careers at the club and became Ministry of Sound legends, including the likes of Judge Jules, Paul Oakenfold and Brandon Block, alongside the key Ministry of Sound players including co-founder Justin Berkmann and chairman Lohan Presencer.
