Tomb Raider Live in Concert Will Feature Original Lara Croft Voice Actor Shelley Blond

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.

The 70-minute concert suite for full orchestra and chorus features extended and reworked versions of McCree's original soundtracks from the first three Tomb Raider games, as well as stills and video clips from the games projected on a giant screen above the orchestra. It was recently announced that the evening will be hosted by special guest presenter Shelley Blond, voice of the original Lara Croft. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event for Tomb Raider fans!

For details and to reserve tickets, visit the Eventim Apollo site.

During the creative process, McCree has shared a few of the updated compositions—"Vertigo," "A Friend Since Gone," and "The T-Rex"—on Soundcloud and has been interviewed on the Official Tomb Raider Blog, Kate Remington's Respawn! podcast for National Public Radio, and in M Magazine. You can also follow Nathan on twitter and Facebook for up-to-the-minute Tomb Raider Suite information.
