Following the recent announcement that the Royal Albert Hall will host the UK premiere of Star Trek - Live in Concert, a celebration of the extraordinary collaboration between J.J. Abrams’ 2009 hit film and Michael Giacchino's score on May 29 2014, the venue is now delighted to announce another first.

One day later, on May 30, 2014, the Royal Albert Hall will host the UK premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness - Live in Concert, giving fans old and new a unique chance to experience Abrams’ newest blockbuster film with Giacchino’s score performed live on stage.

With Star Trek fever at an all-time high, due to Abrams’ rebooted film franchise and this most recent film, these live concerts will feature Giacchino’s score brought to life on stage by the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, while the films are shown in high definition on the big screen, in the majestic surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, the concert explores the collaborative relationship between music and storytelling that is a must for movie lovers.


“To hear Michael Giacchino's music, the secret weapon of the Star Trek series, performed live in Royal Albert Hall, will be, I promise, a thrill,” says J.J. Abrams. “The full orchestra scoring sessions for the films have been among my favourite life experiences. To give the public a chance to hear this incredible music performed live is a wonderful thing. I cannot wait to go and celebrate Michael's truly remarkable achievements!”

They cancelled that Titanic tour when that movie AND album made like a bajillion dollars. This Star Trek broke even and we're getting a whole concert of it?

COMING SOON - City Slickers II: The Legend Of Curly's Gold: The Concert

I guess this inclusion of Legalese was mandated, even though it doesn't matter to anyone in the slightest?

Sounds like a great experience waiting to happen...if only I wasn't still on the other side of the world when this will be taking place. Curses!

This thread has inspired me to put on the "City Slickers II" album. I've always liked that score. So: good work all around, everyone.

Will be curious to hear how this concert will be received, and if they'll be performing the score in its original form, before parts may have been dialed out, remixed, or repositioned in the movie.

Surely, of all the Star Trek scores that would merit being performed live through being (arguably) the best score of the series and the one least having to compete with sound effects would be Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I'd have thought that of all the Trek scores, the two new ones (which are both now getting a concert) are probably the least suitable for such a treatment given the amount of editing and overall loudness of the films themselves. Of course, only about nine people would go to a concert of ST:TMP... sadly.
