Star Wars: In Concert at Orleans Arena – Two Performances, May 29
Star Wars: In Concert
, the unique multi-media event featuring music from all six of John Williams’ epic Star Wars scores, will play two performances on May 29 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.  Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 13 at noon and can be purchased by calling the Orleans Arena Box Office at 702.284.7777 or online at www.orleansarena.com.

The production features a full symphony orchestra and choir, accompanied by specially edited footage from the films displayed on a three-story-tall, HD LED super-screen – one of the largest ever put on tour. The live music and film elements are synchronized, creating a full multimedia, one-of-kind Star Wars experience.

“We’ve taken the key themes from the music and cut together all the images that fit with each theme, so you can really get a sense of how the music played into the images,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “The whole soundtrack is a testament to John Williams’ creativity and his extraordinary ability to enhance the emotional aspects of the films.”

“Creating the music for the Star Wars films has been an exciting and wonderful experience for me, and I therefore have derived particular pleasure in assembling a compendium of themes from all of the films to be presented in Star Wars in Concert,” said Williams. “The editors at Lucasfilm have created original film montages to accompany each of the musical selections, and in the process, I believe that a singular and unique Star Wars experience has been born.”

“This event has been crafted to present Star Wars from many points of view; for the first time, the full dramatic sweep of Williams’ iconic scores can be heard performed live in one evening,” said Another Planet Touring Producer Spencer Churchill. “The show is a new way of experiencing the epic scope of the saga.”

Accompanying the concert is an exclusive exhibit of Star Wars costumes, props, artifacts, production artwork and specially created behind-the-scenes videos from the Lucasfilm Archives. Many of these pieces are leaving Skywalker Ranch for the first time ever. The exhibit features many classic fan favorite artifacts, as well as several new and never-before-seen items, including:

  • Full costumes for Jedi Masters Kit Fisto and Plo Koon will be on display.
  • For the first time ever, pages from John Williams’ original hand-written sheet music for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace will be exhibited for the public.
  • Also on display will be various never-before-seen props from the films, including blasters and helmets from Coruscant, Tatooine and other iconic Star Wars locations.

The Las Vegas performances are part of the return of Star Wars: In Concert to North America, a fifty-city leg of the worldwide tour that starts May 13 in Ft. Myers, Florida, and will include dates in the United States and Canada. More than 350,000 Americans attended Star Wars: In Concert during its three-month inaugural 47-city North American tour last year, which Pollstar rated as the 9th biggest tour of 2009.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 13 at noon and are priced at $25, $35, $55, $85 and $125, inclusive of tax and fees. Tickets will be available at the Orleans Arena Box Office by calling 702.284.7777 or by visiting www.orleansarena.com.
