There’s been a few of these classical meets house music gigs around the country in recent years, such as Hacienda Classical and even a late night Ibiza BBC Prom, so the idea of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra meeting Cream in the city’s best popup music venue was always going to be a winner which actually turned into one the greatest spectacles I’ve ever witnessed. This was a full reworking of the some of the classic 90’s dance tunes that soundtracked so many people’s Saturday nights all brilliantly reworked by Russ and Paul from K-Klass and supported by an amazing team. Introduced by Seb Fontaine, Russ and Paul were joined by a series of great soloists, the vocal talents of K-Klass’s Bobbi Depasois, Jennifer John and the amazing Sense of Sound and of course the city’s biggest and best band led by Tim Crooks who also scored the music. Oh and about ten zillion lasers! It was a constant barrage of memories in an incredible setting and I think my personal favourites have to be Atlantic Ocean’s Waterfall, Pennies From Heaven by Inner City and Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy which closed the main before an encore of Grace’s Not Over Yet. Well done Cream, the RLPO and of course Liverpool Cathedral for playing host yet again to some of the best events the city puts on.
