Of course, music is at the core of The Rock Orchestra experience and the musical directors, Laura Stanford and Jess Cox, have delivered stunning arrangements of the biggest rock and metal tracks from the last 40 years, from bands including Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Rage Against the Machine, Pink Floyd, Linkin Park, System of a Down, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden, Evanescence, Black Sabbath, Foo Fighters, AC/DC, Muse, Queens of the Stone Age and more.Nathan Reed founded The Rock Orchestra By Candlelight as an offshoot of the renowned touring Halloween spectacular, ‘Festival Of The Dead’. After a debut tour with rave customer reviews, he said,“There is nothing as exciting as showing people how powerful an Orchestra can be playing a genre you would never normally hear them play. Our orchestra pays homage to the golden eras of rock and metal but also appeals to a completely new generation. We’ve found something really special.”Now this collection of incredible performers come to London as they continue on their mission to take classical music on a ride to the dark side. Guests should prepare to hear some of the greatest ever rock and metal tracks like they’ve never heard them before.
