Pete Tong announces Ibiza Classics North East date for summer 2021
It’s been announced that the lively show, which celebrates iconic dance music from the White Isle, will be performed at Newcastle Racecourse on Saturday, June 26, 2021.
The show is a must see for ravers, party animals and everyone who ever saw Ibiza as their Mecca, a 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 careful 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, and spawning the album Classic House, which sold over 200,000 copies and reached number one in the UK, and the follow-up, Pete Tong Ibiza Classics, which has so far amassed over 120,000 sales.
Pete Tong has been a massively influential figure in dance music over the past 20 years, predominantly as the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming.
The Essential Mix continues to be the standard bearer of mix shows, and his Essential Selection is still the influential place to premiere new records. All Gone Pete Tong is a residency brand, as well, of course, as being widely used in rhyming slang.
