A man in his 80's doing what he is doing, give him a break if he can't make all the concerts. I have been and so many others to performances cancelled by much younger performers. It is amazing at his age he is still able to do all he can do.
I just nabbed two tickets with my AMEX. So excited! This will my be my first film composer concert in Los Angeles...its not that big of a trip from Phoenix, AZ, but every time there has been a concert I wanted to go to, there has been a schedule conflict. I've only seen Carl Davis in person and an LOTR concert (not Shore conducting), so this is a big deal for me. I just hope Maestro Morricone makes it to LA this time.
Well, it seems that all the Amex-card holders and ticket agencies have bought up all the really good seats. I'm not paying over a thousand dollars for three obstructed view seats in the pit, or over six hundred dollars for three crappy all the way back orchestra tickets. I bought prime seats at the Hollywood Bowl last time, only to have Morricone prove to be a no-show over (reportedly) not selling enough tickets in the first place. When a Morricone ticket goes for more than a Thom Yorke ticket, there's something wrong with the pricing. Guess I'll just stay home and enjoy my several hundred Morricone CDs.
