Up for Grabs

Relive one of the beautiful game’s greatest final day dramas. Projected highlights of Anfield 89 get the symphonic treatment as Lee Dixon reunites members of Arsenal’s title-winning team to reminisce.

‘Thomas, charging through the midfield! Thomas! …It’s up for grabs now!’ Leading composer and life-long Arsenal fan Mark-Anthony Turnage supplies the musical alternative to Brian Moore’s iconic commentary, capturing the intense rollercoaster of highs, lows, desperation, and elation every sports fan lives and breathes.

John ParricelliPeter Erskine and Laurence Cottle form the star-studded jazz trio joining the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Turnage’s composition, which combines his personal experiences and memories as an ardent supporter with musical nods to the likes of goalscoring hero Michael Thomas and Gooner icon David ‘Rocky’ Rocastle (to whom the piece is dedicated). Plus there'll be a panel discussion with some of the original team: George Graham, Lee Dixon, Alan Smith and Nigel Winterburn, presented by Amy Lawrence.

This livestream will be available to watch back until Sun 7 Nov at 7.30pm. You can buy a ticket up until this point. The live stream is available globally.
