25th anniversary concert
Saint Etienne Tiger Bay
8 piece live band with 5 piece string section
Saint Etienne’s Tiger Bay is regarded by many as their finest album. Released in 1994, it was a groundbreaking blend of electronica with traditional folk melodies, which included the singles Pale Movie, Like A Motorway and Hug My Soul. It was arranged and conducted by the late David Whitaker, who had worked with Serge Gainsbourg, Marianne Faithfull and Lee Hazlewood. This show follows the bands sold out performance at the Barbican Centre with the London Contemporary Orchestra in May and features a smaller, shipped back string section.
The Tiger Bay album will be followed by a set of hits and fan favourites also featuring orchestration.
