Tatton Park today announced the spectacular headliners for their Picnic Concerts 2013. Synth pop international superstars The Human League, plus special guests, will be performing in the stunning grounds of the park on Saturday 20 July and Britain’s most famous mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins and the National Symphony Orchestra will be performing on Sunday 21 July. Tickets are on sale NOW and available at www.tattonparkconcerts.com.
The Human League, one of the most influential groups from the 1980s will be joined by special guests for an astounding evening of much loved electro classics. The electronic New Wave band from Sheffield shot to fame in the early 80’s with Don't You Want Me which was a No. 1 hit in the UK, US and many other countries. Over the years they have been cited as an influence by a host of superstars from Madonna to Moby and the Pet Shop Boys to Lady GaGa. Off the back of their sold out tour at the end of last year this show will feature a selection of all their well-known hits such as The Lebanon, Mirror Man, Open Your Heart and Fascination. The concert will conclude with an amazing fireworks display across the backdrop of Tatton Park.
Katherine Jenkins is one of Britain’s favourite singers and has introduced to the world a new genre of classical superstar, selling millions of albums across the globe. Katherine will be performing a selection of much-loved Last Night classics such as Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory. In addition, the concert will feature some of her favourite pieces including Les Filles de Cadiz, Someone To Watch Over Me and I Could Have Danced All Night. This fantastic finale to the weekend comes complete with the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Anthony Inglis and culminates with a stunning fireworks display.
Katherine Jenkins said, ‘I am absolutely thrilled to be performing at this year’s Tatton Park Picnic Concerts. The surroundings are truly stunning and I can’t wait to sing in the park. It will be an enchanting evening.’
