UGLY KID JOE Frontman WHITFIELD CRANE To Perform One-Off Show Of BLACK SABBATH, OZZY OSBOURNE Classics With 32-Piece Orchestra
July 13, 2016, 3 years ago
Orchestra Of Doom is the concert you do not expect.
On July 29th at 9:00pm, the Machiavelli Orchestra is going to be the extraordinary 32 piece orchestra that will follow Ugly Kid Joe frontman Whitfield Crane through great classics by Black Sabbath, old school Ozzy Osbourne, Ugly Kid Joe, and songs from the latest album by Richards/Crane.
Next to Whit will perform the songwriter Lee Richards (second half of duo Richards/Crane), the Australian guitar player and singer Tim McMillan, and "the heartbeat of Verona", Giuditta Cestari on drums.
Andrea Battistoni, orchestra conductor and international-known composer, will arrange the songs for the orchestra. He will recreate the uncontrollable energy of rock and roll through classical instruments for a concert that is totally acoustic. Everything will happen in the magical frame of Teatro Ristori in Verona, a prestigious theatre that combines the tradition of Italian opera with modern technology.
