On Thursday 22nd September we will be performing an exclusive show in the magnificent Roman theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
We will be joined by the renowned Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra, made up of highly qualified classical musicians, that was founded nearly 70 years ago. The orchestra has its roots in the hundred year old orchestral tradition in Plovdiv and over the years has launched the careers of many world-famous conductors. Together with the band they will help take Katatonia’s material to a whole new level.
The prestigious evening will be promoted by the Bulgarian independent radio station Tangra Mega Rock and orchestrated by conductor Levon Manukyan, who wrote the first metal ballet and is the founder of the Levon Manukyan Collegium Musicum orchestra. He has worked with the likes of Opeth, Asia, Paradise Lost, Fish, Tarja Turunen, Anathema and many others.
Alongside the Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra, we'll perform the 2006 classic album ‘The Great Cold Distance’ in its entirety to celebrate the 10th anniversary since it was released. There will also be a second set, without the orchestra, that will see the band playing a selection of both old and new songs.
TICKETS priced 40 BGN (regular) and 65 BGN (golden circle) are already available through: http://www.eventim.bg/en/tickets/katatonia-plovdiv-ancient-theatre-427573/event.html. They will go up to 50 and 75 BGN on the day.
I wish I was a fan, would really love to go to that festival again.
