London's Royal Albert Hall announced this morning that Newton Howard will premiere his first 'greatest hits' world tour, featuring highlights from 30 years of his film score work - from The Dark Knight trilogy and The Sixth Sense to the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and, of course, The Hunger Games franchise - on November 3, 2017, two years following the premieres & release of Mockingjay - Part 2, at the iconic London venue.
3 Decades of Music for Hollywood will celebrate Howard’s many Tinseltown triumphs, unforgettable music from The Dark Knight, the Hunger Games series, blockbusters includingThe Sixth Sense and Peter Jackson’s King Kong, rom-coms Pretty Woman and My Best Friend’s Wedding, and the forthcoming Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
As well as conducting a symphony orchestra and choir comprising over 100 performers – matched with clips and montages from the movies – James Newton Howard will also tell stories from his incredible life working with many of the most famous names in film and music.
