-LUSH! Classics performed by the Ulster Orchestra –
It has become one of the biggest and best nights in the Northern Ireland dance music calendar.
A 65-piece classical orchestra with world-renowned DJs, live vocalists, produced by Kylie Minogue’s musical director, Steve Anderson, and over 10,000 revelers age 18-60 dancing to the sound track of their lives…. for LUSH! Classics performed by the Ulster Orchestra.
Now in its 3rd year – Lush Classical, the biggest ever classical music event held in Northern Ireland – is being held on Saturday 13th October in the SSE Arena, Belfast and it’s a sell-out.
Col Hamilton, co-founder of Lush! explains: “We are just one week away from what promises to be our biggest and best event ever held in Northern Ireland. The demand for tickets has been out of this world.
“We started the event three years ago with what was supposed to be a one-off show to celebrate our 20th anniversary of Lush! nightclub.
“But it was so incredibly successful in every sense of the word that we couldn’t fail to do it again and again.
“We took the show on the road in July to Ebrington Square in Derry/Londonderry and the response was just as fantastic.
“We have grown our numbers from 3,000 to a sell-out 10,000 sell-out of the entire SSE Arena.
“We have added new and exciting elements to the show which sets us apart from other years and the enthusiasm we have had from all the artists involved has been phenomenal – they can’t wait to get back to the SSE to do it all over again.”
Lush! Classical is once again being produced by Kylie Minogue’s musical director, Steve Anderson, with the pop super-star’s full sound team in attendance. World renowned DJs Danny Rampling, Seb Fontaine and Dave Seaman will play music sets and afterparty. The musical scores will again be written by Cliff Masterson, composer, orchestrator and string arranger who works with artists including Kylie Minogue, Little Mix, Emeli Sandé, Westlife and Lionel Richie. The event is being produced and co-organised by LSFX Productions.
Steve Anderson, Kylie Minogue’s musical director commented “The count-down is well and truly on for the best event of the year!
“The Lush events to-date have been simply surreal, brilliant, emotional, uplifting and perfectly executed by the most incredible team. To witness over thousands of people of all ages screaming, singing and dancing to the soundtrack of their lives was something very special.”
Peter Wilson, owner of Lush! And Kellys Complex in Portrush said: “I am excited that we are doing this event again for the third year running – each year it just gets bigger and better. I look forward to seeing the response from our loyal fans as we have some brilliant surprises lined up for the show.”
