LOTR's influence on live to projection concerts

LOTR's influence on live to projection concerts Can't Post

I've always been wondering if live to projection concerts (where the film's entire musical score is performed alongside a screening of the film) has been around even before LOTR. Did LOTR just popularized it? Or is LOTR, one of the first films to do so?

I've been to FOTR and TTT live to projection concerts in Singapore a few year back (I'm waiting to have them do ROTK though) and it's the only concerts I have ever been to (as a film music enthusiast, concerts like these are my thing)

Funny you mention this [In reply to] Can't Post

Variety magazine just did a feature on live performances of film/TV scores. It highlighted Hans Zimmer's recent work on tour, as well as the Game of Thrones concerts and performances of John Williams' works. But in the back of my brain, a little voice was saying "wait, but where's Howard Shore's name in this article?!'

I can't speak to pre-LOTR, but I do think Howard's work has had a notable impact on the popularity of these kinds of performances in the last 15 years.
