Surprised to hear that tickets are still available for the Morricone concert 1st and 2nd December, they were advertised on Classic FM here in the UK. Any of you guys going? It was a pity to see empty seats at the Royal Albert Hall but this says it all about the tastes of the UK public, ie. no taste and would rather watch shit like Big Brother..... Lets get as many of this sites visitors to the gig, come who`s going then????????????????? I am. This is possibly a final chance to see the man himself on UK soil, to be in the same room as the man who contributed so much to Leone`s vision of the west.

Hi Redrum. If you are referring to the Nov. 2003 Morricone Birthday Concert at the RAH it was packed, literally, to the rafters.
If you mean the recent John Barry at the RAH, yes, I agree the attendance was disappointing.

Morricone did two concerts at the London Barbican in, I think it was 2001 and both were packed out.



I don't know how many the Hammersmith Apollo seats and whether two concerts is a gamble but I suspect that many who felt let down and had arranged special trips to London for the very-late-postponed July Concerts will not be coming this time.

As for me, well, I'm a sucker  ;D so I'll be there and in NYC as well in Feb 2007 :)

I was referring to the Nov 2003 concert and believe me it was not packed, there were loads of seats empty around me, but then i was in the posh seats... It was however an unbeleivable evening, not to be missed for true Leone fans, Frayling will no doubt be there again he was at the birthday concert...... Not really a classic FM listener especaially as they recently had a Morricone themed programm narrated by Richard E Grant. It is difficult to say anything positive about this as all the pieces of music were cover versions, ie not Morricone`s original and Grant got a couple of facts wrong as he read from some teenage researchers notes! They should have got one of us to do it instead.  Still theres always december 1st!

Thanx in advance. I'm probably doing a round trip from Montréal just for the concert.
BTW, did you know some scenes from OUATIA were shot right here in Montréal, in the old district.

I think I read in Fraylings` book that the Montreal scenes were those shot in the feather mill, (have I got that right?) where Noodles chases some hood before shooting him......... I hope E of G is played too as it brings the house down and the hairs on the neck up! An unbeleivable piece of music to quite astonishing music, especially at that time too. Can you even imagine a conventional Hollywood western with a scene like that? One of the finest moments in cinema.

ICE, GBU is on the list - that means E of G as well as the main theme  - it's been done on the concerts I've been at and the others I've seen the video of too and is part of the Leone Western segment along with DYS and OUATIW.
The schedule is on the Don't Look Back website.

Note that the orchestra has been CHANGED to the Rome Sinfonietta.

alrite gents, been a while, got a job, that pretty much explains my absence, i feel culturally undernourished.

Anyway, im going to the rescheduled Morricone concert on Friday 1st December at Hammersmith, looking forward to it, just hope the great man doesnt cancel this time.!!!

Just to clarify, who from this board is going to the Friday show at the Apollo???

Dave Jenkins, Calder Benson, Jim Cooper, Chuck Youngblood. They were all alive until they met you, Frank.
