Unfortunately, Orlando Julius & The Heliocentrics will no longer perform as part of Celtic Connections. We have received the following statement from Orlando’s management:
“We are extremely disappointed and sorry to have to announce the cancellation of Orlando Julius’ performance at Celtic Connections. The UK Visa authorities have denied his Visa and entry to the UK and we are forced to cancel all UK shows in January 2015. We are currently looking into details of this refusal.”
Your previous tickets remain valid, however if you do wish a refund then please contact our box office before Monday 19 January by calling 0141 353 8000 (or 0141 565 1000 if booked via The Arches Box Office). We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope this does not impair your enjoyment of other events at the festival.
The festival has replaced the band with Vaudou Game and the concert will go ahead. The band has an authentic Tongolese funk style based on voodoo chant scales. They are led by Peter Solo, a singer and composer born in Togo, the birthplace of the ‘Guin’ tribe and major site of the voodoo culture.
Platinum-selling New Zealand trio Trinity Roots who are flying in from New Zealand for Celtic Connections will still appear as billed. They unite blues, folk and reggae with hypnotic Afro/funk grooves, traditional Maori chants and freewheeling improvisation, in material that ranges from intensely soulful ballads to no-holds-barred rock workouts.
Tickets: £15 + £1.50 BF & £1.50 TF (Web Only)
14+ (Under 16s must be accompanied by an 18+ adult)
Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
