Open air concert series set within the historic home of the Chelsea Pensioners
Belle & Sebastian Thursday 15th June
Belle & Sebastian, the legendary indie-pop band, have announced a huge show in the most uniquely charming of settings, London’s Royal Hospital Chelsea, kicking off the summer of 2017 as part of the Live At Chelsea Concert Series.
The Glasgow band, who found fame in the late 90s with their debut album Tigermilk, caused a shock at the BRIT Awards in 1999 by winning Best Newcomers whilst being on an independent label.
Nine albums later, the group regularly tour worldwide, and have performed at illustrious venues such as the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, as well as festivals such as Glastonbury and Latitude.
Ludovico Einaudi Saturday 17th June & Sunday 18th June
Due to phenomenal demand, a second Ludovico Einaudi date has been added to the Live at Chelsea concert series. The boundary breaking composer and pianist, Ludovico Einaudi, will bring his unique musicianship to the most cinematic of settings, the grounds of London’s Royal Hospital Chelsea, as part of the Live At Chelsea Concert Series, on Saturday 17th June and Sunday 18th June, 2017.
The Italian composer is one of the foremost classical musicians in the world, and has soundtracked everything from feature length films such as ‘This Is England’, to some of the most iconic TV adverts of the moment. His most recent album, ‘Elements’, reached No.12 in the UK Classic Album Charts – a feat no other composer has managed in two decades.
