Big FOTR music event - Oct 09: Concert & Book Release Can't Post

This has just been posted at Doug Adams' blog. In case it be lost amongst the information let me tease out and bold this item first:

Tickets Go On-Sale Friday, December 19th at Noon

To read the full entry, go here: http://themusicofthelordoftheringsfilms.blogspot.com/2008/12/fotr-live-radio-city-music-hall-oct-9.html

Concert:
  • FOTR score performed live to the movie (theatrical edition)
  • Radio City Music Hall
  • Oct 9 & 10, 2009 (Columbus Day weekend)
  • Switzerland’s 21st Century Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Ludwig Wicki
  • The Collegiate Chorale, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and vocal soloist Kaitlyn Lusk
  • Shore will introduce each evening’s performances, in a pre-concert lecture with Doug Adams, author of The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films
  • Shore (and I'm guessing Adams) will be available to greet fans at additional events scheduled throughout the weekend.
Book Release:
  • Doug writes:
Although we still have some details to work out it's not yet official, the current plan is to release both The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films book and The Master Box box set--including The Rarities Archives--at this event. And yes, we intend to do so in high style... with a little long expected release party!

For more information on the book/rarities releases, see this forum post or this home page article.


I wonder if Mr. Cere is perhaps hinting at this in the Moot section of the forum.

I should have provided this in the original post. I was just a little too excited.

*splutters in anger* [In reply to] Can't Post

At myself and Radio City, not TORn or TORnsibs or anyone else . . .

I missed that part on the homepage article, about box office tickets going on sale "beginning on the second day of sale at the Garden and Music Hall Box Office" -- and I don't see anything about this on the Radio City site, which just says tickets go on sale today. Went slip-sliding over there in the icy slush (almost fell twice) through hordes of slow-moving tourists, only to be told I can't buy tickets until tomorrow. Grrr . . .

Sorry, just venting. Very annoyed. Mad Mad Mad

Which day? [In reply to] Can't Post

Which of the two days are you planning to buy for? I know TORnados can't all sit together but it would be fun to Fellowship before and/ or after.

I am definitely planning to be there BTW. 8)

Interesting. [In reply to] Can't Post

People at Doug's blog are reported having obtained their tickets.

I was out yesterday in slush and I was so tried of the slippery stuff by the end of the day I could just have screamed.

the storms of Caradhras will not stay my hand.... [In reply to] Can't Post

....from handing over my hard earned cash to my local Ticketmaster store tomorrow morning.....I had my New School graduation ceremony at Radio City, and have seen concerts there from Rush to Indigo Girls....this will be a fantastic historical multimedia event, I'm sure fans worldwide want tix....having seen the LOTR symphony, with Howard introducing it, I can only imagine how great this will be!

Can TT, ROTK....and then The Hobbit symphonies be far behind??? Seriously, Shore's music has had sellout crowds and given orchestras work, when the audience for classical has been dying out, at least in some areas of the U.S.

this will ROCK....will post when I have my tix in hand....

They must've bought online. [In reply to] Can't Post

I could do that too, but I figured the fees would be less if I went to the box office. Tomorrow I'll either try the box office again, or just be lazy and buy online. Maybe I'll see how slippery it is out.

Whichever night has better seats available at the time I buy. [In reply to] Can't Post

Though if TORnsibs are going on another night, that would be fine too. Which night are you planning to go?

Both nights?

I don't know, it would be a pitty not to party but we better just all get seats and worry about that later.

Well done sir! Very well done.

I have only seen the Rockettes there and while they have better legs, none of them were Neil Peart. See you at the show.

Drat... [In reply to] Can't Post

Why can't I live in/close to NY.... Unsure
But maybe by the time it actually comes around... but by then I'm sure the tickets will be gone.
Darn... Why can't they have cool stuff like this where I live? Crazy

Legs.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, Rush did their 30th Anniversary show at Radio City, several hours of their best, including Peart's drum solo, where you'd think he had more than four limbs.....

I remember I did see the Rockettes there at a Christmas show perhaps? Radio City is fantastic....

*mournful graon* No way to get there [In reply to] Can't Post

but omg what a fabulous event! I'm really sad about having to wait long for the release. First Harry Potter moves from November 08 to July 09; Doug's work moved an entire year away; our "announcement" for The Hobbit/Film2 at the end of the year/Christmas... all such a torment. I'm beginning to develop a lack of trust when it comes to promised production dates.

But I've already started a "Doug Adams Piggy Bank" to prepare for his expanded achievement. *twitch* This is going to be so extremely good!!! :D

Thanks Magpie!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

*Sigh* [In reply to] Can't Post

My finances are not enough to accomodate both this and U2s upcoming tour, which I've been trying to save up for, for the past year....(and they just announced their new album's name and release date)...so I will not be able to get tix to the event itself...

BUT....will there be a way to meet Mr. Shore and Doug Adams regardless of that? That's my dream, it's been for the past 7 yrs....Unsure Are all these events right after the performances.... or are they seperate events that will be open to the public free of charge, or cheaper, anyway.
I don't mind missing the performance per se (the ROTK score is my favorite and that's the Symphony I am really waiting for....well... who am I kidding...... Sly I'll die to go to any one of these....)

In any case, I would love to meet all sibs who are going....I have yet to meet anyone from TORN...it's a short and easy trip for me down there....just 3 hrs...and if I can't get in the building, could I give something to one of you for him to sign for me?!?

*heart breaking, This has been my dream but cannot go....to meet Shore anyway........I got to meet Doug Jones though, that was one of my 2 dreams, so anything is possible....

(and BTW, I have just been too tired to finish the account of that meeting I tried to put up in OT a while back...so if anyone wants an account, and pics, just PM me)

Great stuff! Smile

Oh bother [In reply to] Can't Post

Why in New York and why just in the weekend after RingCon. I can't combine the two, and I already have tickets for RingCon. Unsure I would have loved to come to New York, see the performance and meet sibs. Oh well, maybe another time. For everybody who does have tickets, have so much fun (even though it is still a long wait).
