Echo & The Bunnymen Orchestra

The following story was part of the Day in Rock Report for 5/11/08 - (PR) In the year of the band's 30th anniversary, Echo & The Bunnymen comes to New York City on Wednesday, October 1st for a very special concert at Radio City Music Hall performing their beloved album Ocean Rain in its entirety backed by a 10-piece orchestra. Acclaimed musical director Rupert Christie, who recently helmed the live performances of Lou Reed's Berlin will conduct the orchestra. Tickets go on sale to the public on Saturday, May 10 and are priced at $59.50, $49.50 and $39.50.

Released in 1984, Ocean Rain was Echo & The Bunnymen's fourth album and is widely considered their masterpiece. It mesmerized Echo's fans and broke them to a much wider audience on the strength of such towering songs as "Silver," "Seven Seas" and the unforgettable "The Killing Moon." Upon the album's reissue in 2004 it was again praised in the media, with Blender Magazine acknowledging that Ian McCulloch "wasn't that far off" when he had declared it the greatest album ever made, and admired it as "a portrait of splendid derangement with spectacular orchestrations."

Echo & The Bunnymen are currently in the studio with producer John McLaughlin working on their tenth studio album entitled The Fountain which is set for release later this year. The first single from the album, "I Think I Need It Too" will be released in August in the UK. - website
