Violinist extraordinaire Nigel Kennedy has good news and bad news. The good news is that his new contract with Sony means he'll be going into the studio in the autumn to lay down some new recordings. The bad news is that, as a result, his September UK 'Four Elements/ Four Seasons' dates have been either rescheduled or cancelled.
All dates originally scheduled from Sunday 11th (Oxford) to Friday 23rd September (Nottingham) are affected, nine performances in total. The other shows affected are Cardiff, Bristol, Brighton, London (Barbican), Glasgow, Newcastle and Liverpool.
So far, all gigs have been rescheduled for January 2012 with the exception of the 19th September show at the SECC in Glasgow which has been cancelled. The eight rescheduled dates are listed below. All existing tickets will be honoured for the new dates and ticket holders should be contacted by the seller.
We have tickets available for seven of the eight new dates (London has sold out), available now priced from £39.50. Due to the rescheduling, tickets may also become available for the Barbican show, priced £42.50 - contact the ticket office directly for any returns. Talking of returns: ticket-holders that cannot make the new dates should contact their point of purchase for a refund.
The performances are a chance to hear the violinist perform Vivaldi concertos and Kennedy's legendary interpretation of composer's most famous work, 'The Four Seasons', as well as Kennedy's own 'Four Elements' and will feature the The Orchestra of Life and The Nigel Kennedy Band.
