In the early 2010s, you couldn’t go on a night out, head to a festival, or kick back at a beach club (chance would be a fine thing right about now, eh) without hearing the unfailingly catchy tunes from Swedish DJ, Avicii. The Wake Me Up hitmaker took both the mainstream and electronic scene by storm, churning out banger after banger until his untimely death in 2018. Well, this summer, Avicii will be getting the Candlelight concert treatment right here in Liverpool – and you can get your tickets now.
Lighting up St George’s Hall on August 18, Candlelight: A Tribute to Avicii will reimagine his tracks such as I Could Be The One, Hey Brother and Lonely Together, filling the gorgeously grand space with the sounds of a string quartet. The show – of which there are two; one at 6pm and another at 8.30pm – will be 65-minutes long and performed by String Infusion.
Since its doors opened in 1854, St George’s Hall has played host to an array of events. From Charles Dickens’ readings in the small concert room back in the 1800s, to The Beatles’ Ringo Starr performing on the roof in 2008, the entertainment schedule here has spanned genres, crafts and centuries. This Candlelight concert will give the magnificent space a more intimate feel as candles surround the guests and performers. You’ll be able to benefit from a full service bar at the Avicii Candlelight concert, so grab a drink and kick back for a little over an hour… tickets are available now.
