Fresh from playing download last night Alter Bridge have announced two nights at London's Albert Hall this October, these will be special gigs with a 52-piece symphony orchestra. The Parallex Orchestra will be conducted by Simon Dobson.

The show will be recorded for a future DVD release.

Speaking to Planet Rock Mark Tremonti said-

“We’re a little nervous about it because it’s such a big deal for us,” Mark told us. “We’re going to tape the show, put it on DVD.

“The toughest thing about it is we can’t just do our normal setlist, we’ve got to take the songs that would work best with the orchestra. So we’re taking a lot of songs that we’ve either never played or have played once or twice in our career.”

“We want to do something different, play the more moody, epic songs that would fit that space better with that orchestra. We’re nervous and excited.”

“I don’t know how you could take it on the road because you’d have to get a different orchestra for each country, you can’t travel with 90 people. A 52-piece orchestra with all of our techs, it would be tough.”

Ticket go on sale this Friday the 16th, the dates are the 2nd and 3rd of October.
