After the success of 2018’s arena tour of Star Wars: A New Hope Live with Orchestra, promoter Senbla will present the next instalment of the Star Wars: Film Concert Series.
The second film released in the franchise, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, will be performed live in UK arenas in 2019, featuring Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ musical score performed live to the film.
Since the release of Star Wars: A New Hope over 40 years ago, the Star Wars saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture, inspiring audiences around the world with its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, groundbreaking special effects and iconic musical scores composed by Williams.
Fans will be able to experience the scope and grandeur of the beloved Star Wars films in a live symphonic concert experience, as the Star Wars: Film Concert Series continues with Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, beginning at Manchester Arena on 27th September, before moving onto Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and Glasgow.
The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding saga. As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader.
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force. Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation– and a life-or-death battle with Darth Vader—awaits.
