This union of classical music and iconic dance tracks is another bold, brilliant move from one of the most influential figures in dance music. As the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming, Pete Tong has held a commanding presence over the industry for more than two decades. His unique position has earned him a reputation as the global ambassador of dance music.
The concept of Ibiza Classics and the album companion ‘Classic House’ released via Universal Music came into fruition in 2015 with BBC Radio 1’s Ibiza Prom at the Royal Albert Hall. With its infectious, energetic brand of club music reworked by artistic director Chris Wheeler, the 65-piece Heritage Orchestra and the acclaimed conductor Jules Buckley has captured the hearts of millions and created an unforgettable dance-party.
Since the proms went viral on BBC iPlayer, the demand for them to bring it to arenas saw over 30,000 tickets being sold and a recent live stream of The O2, London show racked up 11 million views in a matter of days, watch it here: http://be-at.tv/4iAIAA
Due to demand Pete Tong, Jules Buckley, the Heritage Orchestra along with an array of guest singers and an unparalleled production will be back in December 2017 with a brand new show.
