A fully-orchestrated performance of Big Star’s legendary album Sister Lovers featuring Mitch Easter, Jody Stephens, Chris Stamey, Ken Stringfellow and Mike Mills (R.E.M.).
Big Star’s third album has long been revered by musicians and critics as one of the most mysterious and influential records ever made. Its fragile, achingly beautiful songs have never been properly performed – but now an all-star band has unearthed the original string and wind orchestrations for this one-off London show.
