Ennio Morricone Postpones U.S. Shows
Ennio Morricone has postponed his upcoming concerts in Los Angeles and Brooklyn. The legendary composer—best known for scoring classic films like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Once Upon A Time In The West and The Mission, among others—was scheduled to make two very rare appearances in America at the Nokia Theatre on May 20 and Barclays Center on May 23.
The Brooklyn show has now been moved to June 13, while the L.A. concert will now take place on June 15. Additional tickets for the shows are currently on sale (though they will cost you a pretty penny). Morricone will be conducting a an ensemble over over 200 musicians and signers for the concerts.
In related news, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) will still be hosting its “the Music of Morricone” film series March 20-23 at the BAMcinematek.
