Never miss another 'Bastille' show
Bastille Reorchestrated: Bastille, To Kill A King, Charlie Barnes
Bastille have announced what promises to be an stunning Reorchestrated Wild World tour in April 2018. The tour will see the band performing with an orchestra and choir showcasing reworkings of the highly acclaimed No. 1 albums Wild World and Bad Blood.
The tour was inspired by the Union Chapel show in May of this year for the Streets of London Charity where Bastille’s performance featured a choir and strings, a powerful departure from their Wild World arena shows.
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.'
This event takes place at Royal Albert Hall, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Since their inception in 2010, Bastille have steadily built up an ever-growing audience, resulting in their debut album 'Bad Blood' reaching the no.1 position in the UK album charts. The following years have certainly been a whrlwind for the band who comprise of frontman and lyricist, Dan Smith, keyboardist Kyle Simmons, bassist and guitarist Will Farquarson, and drummer Chris Wood.
The band have played hundreds of shows across six continents, including the critically acclaimed ReOrchestrated tour, and as of 2018 have amassed 15 million single sales and 6 million album sales globally. Both Bad Blood and its follow-up, ‘Wild World’, reached No.1 in the UK and the top 10 in the US, and their music has been streamed a staggering 3.5 billion times. They’ve not gone without awards recognition either: after winning British Breakthrough Act at the BRITs, the band have earned Grammy, AMA and MTV Europe Awards nominations.

A folk-inspired five piece with comparisons being made from Keane to Arcade Fire. To Kill A King’s songs begin with lead singer Ralph Pelleymounter’s acoustic compositions, around which the band work in drums, bass, electric guitar, synth and other instruments. They focus on Pelleymounter’s lyrical narrative, with accompaniments ranging from tender instrumentals to climactic orchestral passages including strings, brass and five-part harmonies.
