Jurassic Park 30th anniversary concert is touring the UK this October – how to get tickets now
A concert 65 million years in the making... This autumn, Jurassic Park is celebrating its 30th anniversary with screenings around the UK accompanied by a live orchestra. You’d have to be seriously cold-blooded to miss this!
God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man creates dinosaur movies and then turns them into a concert. Do we have that right?
This October, Steven Spielberg’s seminal classic Jurassic Park is coming to arenas across the UK accompanied by a live orchestra.
In a unique cinema experience, the film will be played on big screens in Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool and more, while a full orchestra performs the soundtrack live on stage.
The legendary music of Jurassic Park was of course written by John Williams, the composer also responsible for the Jaws, E.T., Harry Potter, and Star Wars scores. His work will now be taken on by one of the UK’s top symphonic ensembles, the Hallé Orchestra, for five shows this autumn.
It promises to be a roaring good time, but for those aren’t familiar with this ground-shaking movie, the plot follows the story of a group of scientists who are invited to the fictional island of Isla Nublar by businessman John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). Once the scientists, Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) arrive, they discover that Hammond has created a theme park with dozens of newly resurrected dinosaurs.
Based on the novel of the same name, Jurassic Park came out in 1993 and was an instant success, becoming the highest-grossing film ever at that time thanks to making $914 million at the box office. With stunning visual effects that still hold up today, the movie won three Academy Awards for its technical achievements and still remains one of the biggest blockbuster films of all time.
In the years since, Jurassic Park has produced five sequels including a reboot series in 2015. Whether you like the sequels or not, nothing can ever compare to the sheer majesty of that original film.
So, whether you're as old as the dinosaurs on screen or a new hatchling to the world of Jurassic Park, this live concert is for you. Here’s what you need to know about tickets.
