Procol Harum to perform with BBC Orchestra

Procol Harum will play a one-off show with the BBC Orchestra & Choir at London’s Dominion Theatre on November 24.

Gary Brooker and co will perform for Radio 2 as part of the corporation’s Friday Night Is Music Night series.

The band have a long history of symphonic performances, although it’s the first time in several years they’ve delivered one in the UK. Their show with the London Symphony Orchestra resulted in the longest ovation in the history of the Barbican Theatre, and has become the most-requested item in the venue’s archive.

The concert will be broadcast on Radio 2 on November 24. Tickets are on sale now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
