Quote, ''James Bond fans are in for a treat in January next year, as renowned Band, the popular Q The Music Show, are putting on a special concert - performing all the music from Moonraker to coincide with the 40 year anniversary of it's release, on 26th January 2019 at the Wycombe Swan Concert Hall, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire in the United Kingdom.

They are drafting in professional musicians from London to create a 100-piece Orchestra and Choir to recreate all of John Barry’s iconic cues from the 1979 film. As there is only around 50 minutes of music in the film, they will perform the best of the James Bond songs in the second half in true Q The Music style, but with full orchestra.

Because of the nature of this concert, and the huge costs involved, they are crowd funding it, so tickets have to be purchased by 6th May this year for the concert to go ahead on Saturday 26th January 2019.

Q The Music Show are popular with James Bond fans all around the World thanks to their dedicated and authentic versions of the music and were chosen to perform at Sir Roger Moore’s Memorial Event at Pinewood Studios in October last year. The concert will be compered by Bond girl Madeline Smith and Caroline Munro, who have been working with Q The Music this year on their theatre tour of the UK.

The concert will not be available to buy on recording after the show, and the Moonraker score has never been performed live, so this is a unique opportunity for fans to see it. If the project is a success, Q The Music plan to go on a do a different Barry/Bond score each year,'' unquote.

Damn, I'd love to be there. A pity recordings won't be available- the complete MR score is a Holy Grail for Barry fans.

A great opportunity! The original score was added to the movie in mono, not stereo...  ajb007/rolleyes

I've already purchased my ticket! I just hope it can go ahead, as it's 'crowd funded' (A term which I'd never heard of before)

If I were in the UK I would have bought a ticket the moment they went on sale. I fear that there isn't enough of an audience for this. It's sad that because people think low of the film that they don't realise that it features one of Barry's best works.

I agree in that it's not one of the better Bond films but I'll be very disappointed if it doesn't come to fruition.  ajb007/frown

Well, at this rate, it's looking unlikely that the Moonraker Concert will go ahead  ajb007/frown  To console myself, I will now proceed to have a 'Bondathon' and watch all the Bond films from start to finish.

That's a shame. Enjoy your Bondathon, though!
