Sun Ra Arkestra to perform rare Leeds date, August

On August 8th, there is a rare chance to see the extraordinary Sun Ra Arkestra led by original member Marshall Allen in Leeds at a special gig at Belgrave Music Hall. Tickets are already selling fast so if you haven't got yours, be quick!

From the Belgrave website...

We're very proud to announce the first ever appearence in Leeds of The Sun Ra Arkestra. Operating under the direction of saxophonist Marshall Allen - who celebrated his 90th year in 2014. With such a massive, joyous songbook and the kind of well organised chaos that sees their legendary 3 hour sets move deftly between rolling grooves, sing-along chants and atonal blasts of mischievous brass, the Arkestra remain one of the most unmissable live acts today. This is possibly and sadly the first and last opportunity you will get to see the Arkestra in Leeds, ever!

Tickets are being sold through the following outlets priced at £22 -
