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 ground-breaking 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.
Saint Etienne as you’ve never heard them before - not to be missed.
