Pete Tong brings Ibiza Classics to Cornwall venue

Pete Tong & the Heritage Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley, will bring a brand new Ibiza Classics show to Cornwall next summer.

Following previous sell-out tours and outdoor gigs, a new show for 2021 featuring re-workings of iconic dance anthems is coming to The Wyldes.

The show is a must-see for ravers, party animals and everyone who ever saw Ibiza as their Mecca; an irresistible combination of the UK’s most influential DJ with a 65-piece orchestra, a spectacular visual show with lasers and the biggest party anthems.

The concept first came to fruition after a lot of hard work and curation at the massively successful BBC Proms show at the Royal Albert Hall three years ago.

Pete’s collaboration with the Heritage Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley, went on to play arenas around the world, including the Hollywood Bowl and two sold-out nights at the O2.

It spawned the album Classic House, which sold over 200,000 copies and reached No1 in the UK, as well as its follow-up Pete Tong Ibiza Classics, which has so far amassed over 120,000 sales.

“We’re so excited about this show,” said Matt Daniel, organiser at The Wyldes.

“We had a lot of requests for a big dance show after our incredible Fatboy Slim gig in 2019, and we can’t think of a better follow-up than Pete Tong. He’s an absolute legend, and an icon whose work goes beyond just the dance scene. His collaboration with the Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley brings a whole new dimension to some absolutely classic tunes, and this is not going to be one to miss.

“2020. Let’s face it, it’s all gone a bit, well, Pete Tong, so roll on 2021. We cannot think of a better party to bring to Cornwall to celebrate.”
