Have “La La Land” fatigue? Well, they’re just getting started.
The masterminds behind the Oscar-nominated movie musical are set to bring the music of Mia and Sebastian to a city near you with “La La Land in Concert: A Live-To-Film Celebration.”
As live singing isn’t necessarily their forte, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling will not be touring with the production. Instead, a 100-piece symphony orchestra, choir and jazz ensemble, featuring the film’s original vocal recordings, will have to suffice. Composer Justin Hurwitz, however, will be on hand to lead the orchestra in a performance of the film’s Oscar-winning song, “City of Stars.”
Fittingly, the tour’s first stop will be at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles over Memorial Day weekend. From there, the show will tour the country, as well as the U.K., Canada, Mexico, Italy, Turkey and Switzerland.
“For me, one of the most thrilling and fulfilling parts of making ‘La La Land’ was scoring the film to a live orchestra: a hundred phenomenal local musicians playing in real time to the Technicolor images, bringing Justin’s compositions to vivid life,” director Damien Chazelle said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited to share that experience with audiences this summer, let alone in a setting as epic and as quintessentially ‘L.A.’ as the Hollywood Bowl.”
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 10, at 12:00 p.m. PST, so set your alarm now if you’re into this kind of thing.
