For the first time ever, the Academy Award® winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is set to tour the UK Live in Concert this Autumn, with tickets on-sale on National Superhero Day, Friday 28th April.
This masterpiece of film animation will be shown on a huge HD screen and will be accompanied by a unique fusion of live orchestra, turntables and percussion playing the music from the score and soundtrack.
After an eagerly anticipated and glowing sold-out world premiere at the historic Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York in March, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Live in Concert will head to venues across UK cities, calling at Edinburgh, York, Manchester, Glasgow, London’s Eventim Apollo, Sheffield, Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham Cardiff and Bath.
Reaction to the world premiere was overwhelming, with audience members saying ‘I loved it even more watching it with an incredible live orchestra.’ and ‘One of the most incredible experiences I’ve had in a while.’
The one-of-a-kind show is ground-breaking in replication of the film’s score and soundtrack, fusing elements of orchestral with turntables and live DJ, and electronics for a rare and bold live experience.
A Sony Pictures Animation film, directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman and written by Phil Lord and Rothman, the movie introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
The music score for the box office hit was composed by Academy Award® nominee, multiple Golden Globe®-nominee and Emmy-winning composer Daniel Pemberton, known for his work on movies such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Ocean’s 8, Steve Jobs and Molly’s Game.
The hip-hop based film score contains original music, showcasing elements of heroism and resilience, all complemented by song contributions from industry greats Post Malone, Lil Wayne, Jaden Smith and Nicki Minaj.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of my favourite scores I’ve ever written. Utilizing a full orchestra, crazy electronics and unbelievable turntable scratching techniques amongst a million other things, it is so technically complex I never thought we’d ever be able to actually reproduce it live, but somehow, we have”,said Pemberton on the project.
