People love their “Lord of the Rings” — and not just in book or movie form but in another incarnation: in concert.
Ticket giveaways for the “The Lord of the Rings In Concert: The Fellowship of the Ring” have lit up the social media world in the past week, as fans of the epic fantasy saga clamor to see the movie — the first in a trilogy based on the J.R.R. Tolkien novel — set to music.
“The Fellowship of the Ring” will play tonight on a 60-foot screen as more than 250 musicians and singers — including the Munich Symphony Orchestra and Phoenix Boys Choir — perform Howard Shore’s Academy Award-winning score live.
The concert is part of a three-year tour during which each of the Academy Award-winning films will be performed in concert during the 10th anniversary year of their release. “The Two Towers” plays in 2012 and “The Return of the King” in 2013.
The Valley show is one of only nine on the “The Fellowship of the Ring” concert tour.
