The Hunger Games in Concert - film with live orchestra at London's Southbank Centre (2018)

The Hunger Games

Story by Jack Foley

THE Hunger Games is coming to London’s Southbank Centre in July as part of a four-date UK Concert tour.

The live-to-film experience will see a 60-piece orchestra accompanying the original soundtrack for the first Hunger Games tentpole as it plays on the big screen.

The original movie starred Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, a teen living in the dystopian nation of Panem and forced to compete in the Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death competition held by the government annually.

Lionsgate’s adaptation of the original book by Suzanne Collins saw Katniss and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) sent to the Capitol to fight for survival.

The Hunger Games in Concert tour — which follows the La La Land in Concert world tour with live orchestral performances of Damien Chazelle’s hit film in 25 countries — will travel to major cities worldwide after its initial four UK dates.

The London show takes place at London’s Southbank Centre on July 14, 2018, from 7.30pm.

“I am thrilled that people will have the chance to experience The Hunger Games again in this live setting,” Oscar-nominated composer James Newton Howard, who scored all four Hunger Games movie installments, said in a statement.

The film is shown in HD, with a score played live by a symphony orchestra, bringing to life the film’s renowned and imposing soundtrack as never before.
