Why See Dark Star Orchestra?
20 years of the Dark Star Orchestra
The Grateful Dead have been resurrected in the form of Dark Star Orchestra. Formed in 1997, this tribute band came up with the novel idea of recreating complete sets from The Grateful Dead's gigantic list of concerts. They adapt their playing and sound depending on what era of Dead they're tackling on the night, and while they slavishly recreate the sound of the band down to the minutest detail, they also embark on epic improvisations that would make their heroes proud.
Dark Star Orchestra are now well on their way to equalling the number of shows that The Grateful Dead themselves played during their 30 year history, and are now celebrating their 20 year anniversary!
Performance date: 20 November 2018

This is two hours of unapologetic, stupid fun, buoyed along by a cast of ultra-committed performers

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, 'Hamilton' is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
