‘Rings’ concert to tour

October production hits nine cities

A live concert performance of the score of 2001 film “The Fellowship of the Ring” will go out on a nine-stop tour in October, with the music played in tandem with an HD screening of the pic.

“The Lord of the Rings in Concert: The Fellowship of the Ring,” which had its American preem in Gotham in 2009, will play a handful of states in the western U.S. beginning in Glendale, Ariz.

Film will be projected on a 60-foot screen while the Munich Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Chorale and the Phoenix Boys Choir — all conducted by Ludwig Wicki — performs the movie’s score.

Tour kicks off a three-year program that will see a similar live-music version of the trilogy’s other two films, “The Two Towers” and “The Return of the King,” hit the road in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Tours are timed to the 10th anniversaries of the releases of the three films.

CAMI Music and Alex Rabens produce the West Coast road production. The first installment of “The Lord of the Rings in Concert” (Oct. 12-23) is also skedded to make stops in cities including San Diego, Vegas, Anaheim and Seattle.
