The Symphonic Sounds of Back to Basics


The Symphonic Sounds of Back to Basics returns to Millennium Square on 27 July 2018.

The Orchestra of Opera North in collaboration with Dave Beer brings dance music legends and headliners Robin S, Utah Saints and Alison Limerick to the Square this summer.

Robin will perform Show Me Love with a full symphonic makeover as part of this modern club/classical crossover event.

Leeds’ own Utah Saints are excited about having the opportunity to perform their hits in a new way with Opera North’s 50-piece orchestra.

Back to Basics Founder, Dave Beer, is looking forward to performing the track he wrote for Roberts Owens, who joins the list which includes Shades of Rhythm, Saffron, Rachel McFarlane, Sara Garvey, Adetoun Rattenbury, Sabrina Ramikie and Jaz Ellington.

DJs will kick off the evening from 6.30, with live performances from 8.00 p.m.

Note that under-16s must be accompanied by an adult, and the evening is not accessible to under-14s.

Tel:  0844 848 2720 to book.
