Star Wars in Concert

I was in the audience at the Bell Center last night, and what a performance! This is a "must see" for all John Williams fans! And for Star Wars fans, of course!

Sure, every single person is already won over from the very first note. But there's no denying the quality of the gig. I could have done without the sound effects while the symphony orchestra was playing, but overall it was a memorable night.

I didn't expect the Bell Center to be this packed. I thought they were using the configuration of the venue normally reserved for smaller, more intimate shows. Imagine my surprise when I realized that they were using the same set-up reserved for bands like U2 and Bon Jovi.

And the crowd was really into it. Both Anthony Daniels and the conductor seemed taken aback by the ovations they received.

If the tour stops in your city, make sure you're there! It's worth every single penny!=)

Over the years, the Star Wars movie soundtracks have remained my favorite CDs to listen to while reading SFF:

- A New Hope (Canada, USA, Europe)
- The Empire Strikes Back (Canada, USA, Europe)
- Return of the Jedi (Canada, USA, Europe)

- The Phantom Menace (Canada, USA, Europe)
- Attack of the Clones (Canada, USA, Europe)
- Revenge of the Sith (Canada, USA, Europe)

And here's one of the best Star Wars themes ever. And you just might hear it twice if you are loud enough!

Sure, the Imperial March is cool...

But what if you add some extra drums to it? Huh? How awesome would it be then?

Luckily, Epica proves that the answer is 'exponential increase of awesome!'

I was there too, in the upper levels... hearing John Williams' music live is amazing. I'm going to be grinning stupidly for several days to come.
