  1. I'll be there tomorrow. Super excited, front row! 9th time seeing him live.
  2. I'll be at the same ANH and ROTJ shows as you! All third tier for me as well in the center, except for ANH where the only cheapest options were box seats on the side second tier, so will just be at an angle, no big deal. Third tier center will give a great wide view of everything though, can't wait!
  3. I got tickets all four movies as well. My wallet is crying a bit, but worth it. These, plus Williams in Boston later this month... it's definitely an awesome year for Star Wars concerts. Also, Lincoln Center and the Philharmonic really knocked it out of the park with the event this morning. The whole staff was so friendly, everything was organized super well, and I met some great new friends in line! The brass section of the Philharmonic also performed the Main Title, Imperial March, and Throne Room (all a bit abbreviated), some in costume, and the 501st costume group was there as well. Quite a sight to see Kylo Ren, R2, Palpatine, and Stormtroopers strolling around a place as usually formal as David Geffen Hall. Got some free swag, too - a Force Awakens full size poster, and two vinyls (Force Awakens faces picture vinyl, and Jabba Flow remix picture vinyl). Great time!
  4. Thanks! Will add to the main post. Here it is from the audience's perspective. Their reaction to Williams is chillingly epic. He literally needs no introduction!
  5. John Williams and the Orlando Philharmonic gave a surprise performance at the Star Wars Celebrarion opening panel celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars! They started with "Princess Leia's Theme" as a beautiful tribute to Carrie Fisher, then the "Main Title" (and the concert suite that usually follows it), and ended with "The Imperial March", concluding the panel at the same time. Lucas called Williams the "secret sauce of Star Wars", haha. Performance starts at 9:30: Here it is from the audience's perspective. The crowd's reaction to Williams is chillingly epic. He literally needs no introduction! Wonderful surprise!
  6. The cover is fan art made by a guy called Simon Z, I recognized it instantly: http://simonz.co.hu/wallp3_eng6.html That says enough about this thing's legitimacy, I think...
  7. Surprised at the silence in this thread! Tickets went on sale this morning. Who's going? I got tickets for Wednesday.
  8. It sounds like an early, subtle statement of the Throne Room theme, specifically 1:01 of said theme. Maybe some musical foreshadowing?
  9. Strange there'd only be two dates, and on weekdays no less. Isn't there always at least a Saturday performance?
  10. Some more good/neat ones that have been posted over the past day: Electric guitar with cool intro and elements of other themes: Violin and piano: Arranged for 34 (electric) guitars: Mariachi version (yes, really): Alto Sax: Singin' in the Rain Mashup:
  11. These are more tributes to Carrie Fisher than Williams, but still, there have been some wonderful/cool interpretations of Leia's Theme in the past day or two: A bell tower: Classical guitar (really peaceful, and nice cameo of another theme at the end): Cello (especially sad sounding): Acapella: I'm sure there'll be more in the coming days.
  12. Nice gesture! And always nice to see new footage of Williams in action, especially relatively recently.
  13. Not sure if this has been posted, but it's pretty interesting. http://www.rebelforceradio.com/shows/2016/12/21/star-wars-oxygen-vol-38-rogue-one-part-1
