    I have been a Morricone fan for over 40 years, since being introduced to his music when I was 11 by a school friend. It led to a realisation that there was more music out there than just the charts. This passion, has led to a life time of exploration and pleasure, and to revisit his music via a live performance in such a prestigious venue, would be a dream come true. He is indeed “The Maestro”.

  • Richard Everett says:

    listening to such familiar music conducted by the composer himself with a large orchestra and chorus in such a stunning location would be an amazing experience

  • Ashley Elsdon says:

    I’d love to be there because his music has been an inspiration to me since I was a teenager

  • Tim says:

    This mans music framed much of my early life.
    My father and brother loved westerns so I often listened to it at the cinema and at home on record.
    It kindles strong memories and I like it for that reason alone.
    To see and hear him live would be wonderful.

    Wah wah wah wah. Wah wah wah. Wah wah wah. Wah wah wah. (theme from the good, the bad and the ugly) Nuff said!

  • Izabela says:

    I’d love to be and listen that music live because every little sound in his music touches my body like gracious lover…because every neuron in my body play the music with him…and I’d by a magical experience…

  • Scott Gillies says:

    Ennio Morricone is the Grand Master of film music. It is my sons 17th birthday this month and he just love’s music from all genre. I would love to surprise him with tickets to this extrordinary composers concert.

  • Idafe Perez says:

    Why? Why?? Watching, hearing, listening to one of the greatest masters of film music of all times performing live in a place like the Albert Hall? Why you ask? That is a self-answering question, I’m afraid…

  • Robert Johnson says:

    The man is just awesome!! I can remember singing the theme tune to ” the good the bad & the ugly” with all my mates just after we had watched the film.
    The music from those spaghetti westerns sticks in my mind more than the storyline!!

  • Simon says:

    16 bit. . . . 24 bit. . . . all the bits in the world will never better the greatest live performances. A life-long Morricone fan, I would love to surprise my wife with this once-in-a-lifetime concert – I will keep my fingers crossed.

  • Bruce says:

    I’ve recently from a capital city with a strong arts life to the midlands. This has hurt, hurt bad. Any excuse to run away to a night of civility – and if that’s to Morricone, then uber-result.
    It should also help suppress the polydactyly too…

  • Heather says:

    Because I think Ennio Morricone is the most amazing and influential composer there is and I have been waiting two years for him to tour again.
    To hear Ecstasy of Gold live and to see Ennio Morricone would be one of the most amazing moments in my life and a dream I can say I accomplished.

  • geoff says:

    Whilst there has never been anything to compete with listening to music on my B&W speakers for the past 30 years if I win the tickets then this is likely to prove me wrong!

  • Ian Williams says:

    Close your eyes – imagine De Niro’s cheshire-cat grin in Once Upon A Time In America – Ennio Morricone’s sweet orchestra swelling in the background. Cut to the finale of The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly – an operatic Mexican stand-off with the picture cut to the music. Then Days Of Heaven, with the music mirroring the evening summer glow of the image… And as for Secret Of The Sahara – he even gave this kitsch mini-series one of his best themes! That’s why I want to be there when the Maestro steps onto the stage.

  • dave says:

    Morricone is the BEST! If you’re into Morricone, you should check out my Spaghetti Western Concept Rap album, called “Showdown at the BK Corral.” It’s basically a Spaghetti Western over 9 tracks – very influenced by Morricone. I’d love to hear what you think of it! You can download it for free at sunsetparkriders.com
