Tomb Raider – Live in Concert

TR-Suite-Edit

To further celebrate 20 years of Tomb Raider, composer Nathan McCree, composer for the first three Tomb Raider games has put together a suite of music which will be performed live at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo in London, UK on Sunday 18th December 2016. You can purchase tickets to the event here

The concert will include all of the classical compositions as well as extended tracks from the original three games. If you are unable to attend this event, you will have the option to purchase the Tomb Raider suite on CD or by digital download instead – the suite was recorded by a full orchestra at Abbey Road studios in London.

There will also be a TV documentary called Tomb Raider Remastered which features the entire process – re-composing the tracks, the recording of the CD and the lead up to the final event on December 18th.

Here is some background information from the press release:

Twenty years ago, when the first Tomb Raider game was released and the world was introduced to its heroine, Lara Croft, few could have predicted its extraordinary impact and success. Tomb Raider games have now sold over 45m copies, making it one of the most successful gaming franchises in the world. Lara Croft is the most recognisable character in gaming, with Time Magazine naming her in their Top 100 Most Influential People Who Never Lived, alongside Sherlock Holmes, Hamlet and Mr Spock. The game has spawned two major motion pictures, with a third in production starring Alicia Vikander as Lara.

To celebrate 20 years of the Tomb Raider franchise and the legendary Lara Croft, composer Nathan McCree, who wrote the music for the first Tomb Raidergames, has created a 70-minute concert suite for full orchestra and chorus based on his original themes as well as extensions and variations of original tracks from the first three Tomb Raider titles. McCrees Tomb RaiderTheme has been re-used, arranged and adapted in many of the Tomb Raider incarnations, including the movies, and is as famous in the game world as the James Bond Theme in the movie world. Tomb Raider – Live In Concert gives fans the unique chance to hear McCrees famous themes played by an orchestra live for the first time – and experience the excitement and power of full orchestral music live and loud!

McCree says: This is a wonderful opportunity for the fans, as well as me, to hear the music as I had always intended it.

On a giant screen above the orchestra, the story of 20 years of Tomb Raider will be told with incredible in-game footage and images; a fantastic opportunity to revisit some of the greatest scenes and adventures of Lara Croft and see the development of the character, stories and design behind the legendary game.

Tomb Raider – Live In Concert promises to be the Game Music event of the year: a unique musical and visual experience celebrating one of the greatest and most popular games ever created. No fan will want to miss it.     

This is a truly special event to be enjoyed by all Tomb Raider fans alike, it is a one night only event, so be sure to pick up your tickets as soon as possible. On ordering you will have the option to purchase standard tickets or the VIP package, which includes:

 

  • A Top Price ticket in the front 8 rows of the central stalls
  • A Tomb Raider VIP lanyard
  • A concert programme signed by Nathan McCree
  • A limited edition print of the front page of Tomb Raider Suite, signed by Nathan McCree
