“ Really looking forward to playing some of our hit songs with an orchestra at some of the country’s most beautiful venue’s and meeting up with faces from the past that we had great fun with”.
Mark Morriss of The Bluetones said:
“To have the opportunity to perform the Bluetones songs in this style, in these venues, is not something I ever dreamt would be possible. I absolutely cannot wait for these shows.”
