James Bond composer David Arnold has been confirmed for this year’s BBC Electric Proms event.
Arnold will be teaming up with Kaiser Chiefs on 26 October for a new approach to the arrangement and performance of some of their best-known tracks. In an article posted at NME.com, Arnold said: ‘Hopefully under the umbrella of the Electric Proms we can throw away the rule book of what you can or can’t do with a rock band and a bunch of musicians that you may not expect to seem on stage with them.’
Other notable performers at the event will include Candie Payne, Terry Hall, Jamie Cullum and Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess. Producer Mark Ronson will also be performing alongside Lily Allen and the BBC Concert Orchestra.
The 2007 BBC Electric Proms will run from 24 to 28 October at venues around Camden.
Festival director Lorna Clarke said: ‘I am delighted that the first artists on this year’s line up have embraced the central challenge of the Electric Proms–to create new moments in music.’
‘I know that they will give our broadcast audiences across the country something truly special.’
Tickets for the event go on sale at noon on 12 September. For ticket availability and further details, visit the official website.
