A live concert tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Symphonic Suites has been announced for 2021 and 2022.
Andrew Lloyd Webber: Symphonic Suites features music from three of the composer’s biggest musicals, Evita, Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard.
The newly-orchestrated suites will be performed live in concert in September 2021 at London’s Royal Festival Hall.
The live show will be followed by an album, Andrew Lloyd Webber – Symphonic Suites, released by Decca Records on 3 September and on Vinyl on 29 October.
The concert will then tour in 2022 with performances scheduled for Manchester (17 September – Bridgewater Hall), Glasgow (18 September – Royal Concert Hall), Cardiff (24 September – St Davids Hall), Nottingham (30 September – Royal Concert Hall) and Liverpool (1 October – Philharmonic Hall).
Tickets go on general sale at 10AM on June 25.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “For over a year now, we have lived without the joy of live music.
“As we fight to bring performers back to work and theatres back to life, I hope that this album might now take on a new meaning: the music which represents the triumphant and hopeful return of live music, theatre and entertainment across the world.
“It is wonderful and very moving for me to see brilliant musicians back where they belong.”
