Following a string of dates across the UK, Haçienda Classical will make its debut performance in Ireland later this year. Taking place in Dublin’s 3Arena the week before Christmas on Saturday, 17 December.
Full of dance music classics from Manchester’s legendary Haçienda nightclub, the hit tracks have been reinterpreted by the club’s original DJs and will be performed alongside the Dublin’s own RTE Concert Orchestra, the AMC Gospel Choir and guests including New Order’s Peter Hook and Happy Mondays’ Rowetta with Graeme Park DJ’ing live during the concert.
Founded in the early ’80s by Factory Records, Tony Wilson, Rob Gretton and New Order, FAC 51Tthe Haçienda was the birthplace of the acid-house music in Manchester.
It will also see the release of collaboration between FAC 51 The Haçienda and Sony Classical on a full Haçienda Classiçal album on 21 October.
