Radio City Music Hall
With 238 musicians performing and singing along to the remarkable Academy Award-winning score by Howard Shore. Peter Jackson's The Two Towers is making a triumphant return to the big screen. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers scored by Howard Shore will be performed live at a concert marking the film's 21st anniversary. The epic film and its iconic score will be performed by a symphony orchestra, chorus, and soloists at the historic Radio City Music Hall under a 60-foot screen on February 14, 15, 16, and 17, 2024.
Howard Shore's music for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring brought J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth and its inhabitants to life for moviegoers. The world has grown dim in the second chapter of the story, The Two Towers, as a deepening shadow marches out of Mordor. Now that their fellowship has fallen apart, Frodo and Sam are getting dangerously close to Mordor, aided by the cunning Gollum. As the horde of Uruk-Hai emerges from Isengard, Aragorn, the elf archer Legolas, and the dwarf Gimli are all set to confront them at Helms Deep.
For the first time since its sold-out 2015 performance, The Two Towers, In Concert, will be performing in New York City again in 2024. Returning once more to Radio City Music Hall after a sold-out four nights in 2023, The Lord of the Rings: In Concert will bring back the Fellowship for the second installment, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Chosen No. 1 by the Classic FM Movie Music Hall of Fame 2023, Howard Shore's live performances of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, In Concert, are unlike any other movie-going experience you’ve ever had! Conducting The Two Towers, In Concert this year, is Ludwig Wicki, who has a background in bringing film compositions to life and was the show's first conductor.
"A splendid evening out for any Lord of the Ring lover, treated to a fantastic rendition of the film’s scores and an opportunity to jump back into one of the most famous fantasy series of all time."
Filmmaker Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings' trilogy—2001's The Fellowship of the Ring, 2002's The Two Towers, and 2003's The Return of the King—became an international sensation thanks to its adaptation of the acclaimed novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. The New Line Cinema-released trilogy has 17 Oscars between them and is one of the highest-grossing films of all time. Oscars were bestowed upon Howard Shore for his Original Score in The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and The Return of the King (2003), as well as for his Original Song, Into the West, which was featured in The Return of the King.
"Lord of the Rings is loved by many, and this series is an opportunity to enjoy this famous fantasy series in a new way once again. Not one to miss, and definitely one to book in for next year when they return with The Return of the King."
