Tomb Raider Live in Concert Will Have London Premiere in December

As of this writing, tickets are still available for the world premiere of Nathan McCree's Tomb Raider Suite, Sunday, December 18, at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo in London.

To celebrate Tomb Raider's 20th anniversary McCree, composer for the first three Tomb Raider games, has created a 70-minute concert suite for full orchestra and chorus based on his original music. McCree’s Tomb Raider Theme 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 is in the movie world. McCree calls the event "a wonderful opportunity for the fans, as well as me, to hear the music as I had always intended it."

The Tomb Raider Suite will be performed live by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and chorus, conducted by Robert Ziegler. On a giant screen above the orchestra, the story of 20 years of Tomb Raider will be told through images and game footage. McCree will also host a pre-concert event in which he'll discuss creating the music for the original Tomb Raider games. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any Tomb Raider fan!

Tickets can be purchased through eventimapollo.com. A VIP Package—including preferred seating, a Tomb Raider lanyard, as well as a limited-edition print and concert program signed by Nathan—is available for hardcore fans.

  1. Too bad I don't live remotely close, otherwise I would've already bought my tickets! xD. Hopefully it comes to the States...

    I might go to this actually! I have never been to London, but, I think that this might just spark some good feelings within me! The soundtracks have always been a great part of the franchise! :)

      I sure hope I am! Are you going at all?
      Just imagine, listening to all that music on a large stage. Do you know if they allow food and drink to be consumed on the stage, because if they do, that would enhance the experience ;)

    3. Unfortunately no. I just can't afford the time off or the tickets (for the show and for the airplane ride from New York) right now. I have no idea about the venue's policies, but they probably have info on their website. Have fun! :D

      Oh, I see. Right, right, right. I don't live too far from London actually (Donegal in Ireland), which means I should be able to get up no bother.
      That's alright. I thought you would have known because of the event being advertised on the site.
