Listen to the magical melodies of jazz under one of the last remaining Concordes in the world.
The velvet-dipped vocals, the dazzling glamour, the attention-stealing stage presence: all the divas of jazz possessed these sensational star qualities. From Billie Holiday and Nina Simone, to Etta James and Aretha Franklin, these legendary household names certainly knew how to put on a show to remember. This November, Fever are looking to step into their glimmering heels for the evening with a mesmerising candlelit concert set under the wings of a Concorde jet.
Candlelight Concorde: A Tribute to Billie Holiday & Divas of Jazz will be making its debut on November 6th at Manchester Airport.
Ticket-holders will be invited to sink into a plush theatre-style seat underneath a sky-pointed Concorde, its sleek, white facade serving as the perfect canvas to reflect the dancing flames of candles that are placed around the venue. Over the course of an hour and ten minutes you will be treated to a selection of songs from women who defined the genre of jazz, performed by an ensemble of talented musicians.
While music fills the air, planes from the airport can be seen in the distance; soaring into the night with a faint rumble. Choosing whether to stare up at the gleaming belly of a giant Concorde (which once carried royalty), watch the musicians do their thing or gaze off at this unique backdrop won’t be only the tough decision to make that evening. A fully-stocked bar will also be at hand, leaving you spoilt for choice with a range of tempting tipples.
To make sure you can completely let your worries melt away with each note played, the event is also safe and socially distanced. If you fancy treating your friends or family to a one of a kind experience, tickets for this soul-stirring Candlelight Concorde event are on sale now.
