Bastille have announced a ‘Reorchestrated tour’ for April 2018

Bastille have announced a tour for next spring, which will see them playing intimate venues and concert halls with a string and brass section, and a choir.

They’ll be performing reworkings of tracks from albums ‘Wild World’ and ‘Bad Blood’, kicking off at the O2 Apollo in Manchester.

Frontman Dan Smith explains: “Earlier this year, we did a special one-off show to raise money for Streets of London, in it we deconstructed and totally rearranged a bunch of our songs using strings, brass, and a gospel choir. It was one of my favourite things we’ve ever been able to do.

“We are incredibly excited to take that setup on the road for this Reorchestrated tour, which will see us playing some amazing venues and concert halls around the UK and Europe. It makes for a very different kind of Bastille show where we totally reframe and reimagine our songs with the help of some incredible musicians, in a special and intimate setting.”

The dates are:


10 Manchester, O2 Apollo, UK

11 Edinburgh, Usher Hall, UK

13 Bristol, Colston Hall, UK

14 Sheffield, City Hall, UK

16 London, Royal Albert Hall, UK

18 Utrecht, Tivoli, Netherlands

19 Berlin, Tempodrom, Germany

20 Lucerne, Kultur und Kongresszentrum Luzern, Switzerland
