Brown To Give Hits A Classical Twist

STONE ROSES legend IAN BROWN will give his music a classical make-over by employing an orchestra to re-work his hits. The singer released his fifth solo album The World Is Yours in September (2007) and wants to play a set of classical concerts that will give some of his most famous songs a new twist. He says, "I'm planning some classical dates where I can do things like F.E.A.R. It already has some strings on it, but I'll get some other things re-scored as well." The 44-year-old also has some novel ideas about costumes for the tour. He adds, "I'll get all the orchestra in Adidas tracksuits and I'll wear a dickie bow and the suit."
