Ministry Of Sound Is Touring Australia With A Massive Orchestra This Year

A full orchestra playing hits from the likes of Basement Jaxx, Darude, Royskopp, Underworld and Moby dusted up with live vocals sounds like a damn good time. And that’s exactly what legendary music brand Ministry of Sound has planned when it rejigs its popular Ministry of Sound Classical concept for a full Australian tour.

So far, only a Sydney date has been confirmed for Ministry of Sound Classical but the tour’s official website lists TBC dates for Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Hunter Valley, Hobart and Auckland. It’s a similar run of shows to last year’s brief tour but more cities have been added this time – no doubt stretched as a response to high demand.

On March 18, Ministry of Sound Classical will take over Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter with a jam-packed, festival-worthy line up supporting the main show which will be led by conductor Vanessa Perica with a rotating list of vocalists including Sneaky Sound System’s Miss Connie, Lady Lyric, Karina Chavez, Rudy, Nat Conway and Soloman Pitt.

The whole ordeal will kick off at 2:30 PM on the Saturday and wrap up by 10 PM, squeezing a stack of bangers in between, culminating in all that EDM nostalgia recreated by dozens of classical musicians on stage.

If it sounds similar to the better-established Synthony, then that’s by design. It sounds like there are very few differences between that show, which most recently played at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena, and Ministry of Sound Classical. Although the latter is taking on more of a festival format, with a long list of acts (listed below).
