Yoda and the voice of C-3PO at “Star Wars in Concert” at HP Pavilion
This past Sunday I saw “Star Wars in Concert” at the HP Pavilion. It was an incredible display of possibly the greatest movie soundtrack in history, movie clips and special effects. The Star Wars orchestra played for 2 hours and the voice of C-3PO, Anthony Daniels, narrated between scores.
The passionate swells from the violins, exuberant shouts from the trumpets and flashing green laser beam lights combined for an awesome performance. It was like re-watching all the best scenes from the movies on an enormous 3-story tall screen with a live soundtrack right in front of you.
The orchestra played songs in chronological order with the movies and My personal favorites were the Darth Maul theme song (Darth Maul, what a badass, coolest bad guy by far), the main theme song and Darth Vader’s song. Another one of my favorites is the song by the Cantina band. This is from “A New Hope” when Han Solo and Luke go into the sketchy bar. Hecka sick. I’m liking the steel drums in the background.
Just a random comment about Star Wars. How weird is it that Annakin got with Padme? If you remember in the first movie when he meets her, he is about 7 years old and she is 16. He falls in love with her right then and there. In later movies they age a lot and he is about 16. So that makes Padme in her mid 20s, hooking up with a teenager. Weird. And also, he gets pregnant. Not exactly the best role models out here.
