I'll be there! It's a shame that Doyle's 'violin concerto' based on As You Like It isn't on the programme. I'd love to hear that again.

Also...

Looks interesting. Although, it will be eery being there with no Jerry up on the stage. I might start sobbing :thumbup:

And they may have to drag me out of the auditorium to my protests of - "

" :rolleyes:

I'll be there too, and so will MAG-SI (we're coming together, as well as some (girl)friends). ;) Meeting could be lots of fun! ;) I'm also very much looking forward to the pre-concert talk and perhaps even getting some of my Arnold/Doyle CDs autographed. :blink:

Anyone else going? Maybe we could organise a pre-concert-talk talk. :D

Sure. Who else is going? :P

I thought I'd resurrect this thread before the concert this weekend. If anyone is interested in meeting up beforehand let me know!

Of course I'm interested, but I'm not sure how exactly we could meet, i. e. how would you know that I'm Maglorfin and how'd I know that you're Jim Ware. :lol::P The other thing is, I'm not sure when we'd meet. I really don't know where anything is in Barbican, although I was able to find my seat on that JW concert three years ago. :D Perhaps I could give you my mobile phone number and we'd be able to find each other somehow in Barbican?

Otherwise, we (me and four other concertgoers from Slovenia) are flying to London tomorrow evening. We're all very much looking forward to the concert (and to visiting London itself, of course). ;)

Word on da street (Beech Street, that is) is that the David Arnold piece to be played will be Independence Day. ;)

So I gather. They'll also be playing The Creation from Doyle's Frankenstein, which will probably be organless again (but still LOUD I'm sure).

You watch yourself, young man! :D

The concert was great, especially with the pre-concert talk, appearance of both Arnold and Doyle and Arnold's own live performance on the stage, which surely is a rare treat. Arnold was also very kind, he spent a lot of time chatting with people and signing autographs (he signed 5 of my CD booklets and also wrote "I know your name!" on the Casino Royale, which is really cool! :D). When asked about his favourite 007 soundtrack (apart of his own work, of course :)), he said You Only Live Twice and when I asked him whether he planned to use the "007" theme again (it's last been used in Moonraker, if I remember correctly), he said thar there's a good possibility of it being used already in the upcoming Bond.

The LSO outdid themselves, as they usually do. The only drawback was the drummer, who really messed up the James Bond Theme (it was played as an encore), and the Pink Panther was also strange. Although there's a Star Wars exhibition still opened in London, Darth Vader didn't appear to conduct the Imperial March with his lightsaber, which was kind of disappointing. :D Too bad they programmed My Heart Will Go On, anything else by Horner (or somebody else) would've been better. The conductor also did a good job and made a good impression.

Overall, a great event, so I'm already looking FW to attending another film music concert in 2-3 years' time. :)
