Glastonbury Festival's Pyramid Stage will be opened by Haçienda Classical.

Mike Pickering and Graeme Park will perform alongside the Manchester Camerata Orchestra to reimagine classic tunes from the Haçienda years.

On the Glastonbury appearance, Haçienda Classical's executive producer Peter Hook said: "After forty years in the music business I still count my three appearances at Glastonbury as the peaks of my career.

"To be back with Haçienda Classical in 2017 is another landmark moment and is dedicated to Tony Wilson and Rob Gretton to celebrate their contribution to British music and culture."

Other shows throughout spring and summer include London's Royal Albert Hall and Manchester's Castlefield Bowl. Get tickets for the shows here and see the dates below.
