Westlife & More Added To Hampton Court Palace Festival 2011 Line-Up & Tickets

Westlife (Friday 10th June), Kerry Ellis & legendary rock icon Brian May (Saturday 11th June), and The Australian Pink Floyd (Monday 13th June) have been added to 2011's Hampton Court Palace Festival line up. Tickets for all shows go on sale on Thursday 7th April.

Westlife will be bringing their Gravity tour to Hampton Court Palace. Fans will be treated to songs from their early days, as well as their hit singles and songs from the latest album.

Kerry Ellis, billed as one of the most thrilling vocal talents on today's West End stage joined forces with founding member of Queen, Brian May, for the album 'Anthems', for which May produced and wrote new material. The album charted Top 20 in its first week of release. Now they will bring their highly successful collaboration to the Festival for a special one off - Anthems at Hampton Court.

The Australian Pink Floyd show has been heralded by The Times as “perfect in just about every way” and the Sunday Times as “the best tribute band in the world”. With quadraphonic sound, 3d visuals and brand new laser and light show, the band imitates the magic of Pink Floyd. With over 3 million tickets sold world-wide, this global spectacular is sure to sell out quickly.
 
They join, international rock icon Bryan Adams who will perform songs from his critically acclaimed acoustic CD 'Bare Bones', Beatle Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band and James Blunt, who will make his debut appearance at the Festival. Simple Minds, America’s legendary singer-songwriter, Don McLean forever associated with 'American Pie' and 'Vincent' ('Starry, Starry Night') and Festival favourite Jools Holland, will return with His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra featuring Gilson Lavis with special guest star Sandie Shaw and guest vocalists Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall.

Alfie Boe will headline the Festival Finale & Fireworks and will be joined by soprano Natasha Marsh and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra all under the watchful eye of Conductor Richard Balcombe. In a mixed programme from his repertoire, Alfie will delight the audience with both Classical pieces and show stoppers such as 'Bring Him Home' from Les Miserables, 'Some Enchanted Evening' from South Pacific and 'On the Street Where You Live' from My Fair Lady. Bringing the 2011 Festival to a rousing finish, guests will also be treated to a stunning display of spectacular fireworks over the River Thames.   
 
As well as the fantastic music line up, the Hampton Court Palace Festival is renowned for creating a truly unforgettable experience. Artists perform in the main courtyard of the magnificent Tudor Palace providing an intimate atmosphere for an audience of 3,000. Corporate hospitality is available in the State Apartments and Festival-goers can also arrive early (doors open at 1830) and enjoy a delicious picnic in the stunning palace gardens, courtesy of Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts.

Robyn - Honey (Album Review)
Mon 29 Oct 2018
There is a method of mastering in dance music production - pioneered by Daft Punk - that involves increasing sidebar compression on the kick drum. The result is that the whole track throbs around the kick, and seems more aggressive, powerful and tight. It’s particularly effective for radio play, where things are engineered into a state of razor-like sharpness to be heard over rush hour traffic.
