morricone

While best known for his work with Sergio Leone -- specifically the iconic, whistle-heavy theme for classic spaghetti western The Good, The Bad & the Ugly -- Ennio Morricone is one of the most prolific and influential soundtrack composers of the last 50 years and remains busy today. He's done it all, too, with distinctive, innovative work in horror (Argento's The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, John Carpenter's The Thing) to big-budget Hollywood films (The Untouchables, The Mission) and everything in between. (In 1968 he composed scores for 38 films!) He's also highly influential in the "pop" world -- trip hop probably wouldn't have happened without him, and you can hear his touch in everything from Black Sabbath to The Pixies to The High Llamas to The Wu-Tang Clan.

Ennio Morricone, who made his US debut in 2007 at Radio City Music Hall, is staging two U.S. performances in 2014 -- NYC and LA -- with a 200 member orchestra and choir where they'll perform his most celebrated work, all with the maestro at the conductor's podium. The NYC show happens at Barclays Center on March 23. Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday (10/25) at 10 AM with an AmEx and internet presale beginning Wednesday (10/23) at 10 AM.

The Los Angeles show happens at the Nokia Theater on March 20 and will be his first-ever West Coast performance. Check out some of Morricone's work below...

Wow, I'm thrilled that he's touring AND it's so expensive I wouldn't even consider going.

One would guess if he's at Barclay's they think he could sell more tickets than those other places can hold.

Anyone know where to find the pre-sale code, for us non-AMEX cardholders?

Posted by rexlic | October 21, 2013 6:22 PM

How are you going to pay for the AMEX presale without an AMEX card, even with the code?

By the way, if you look at the seating chart, it looks like it's just some of the lower-level sections... does that mean they're blocking off about half of the arena for this? It would explain the exorbitant prices, I guess.

Are you people retarded?

It's an AMEX PRESALE.

YOU NEED AMEX.

The TM website says both "American Express" and "Internet Presale" for Wednesday morning, two distinct listings. A typical "Internet Presale" listing, with no card featured, can use a presale code from a site, as in the recent Van Morrison offering, when I received an e-mail from his website with the code. So there may still be a separate code out there for people without the card--hence, my inquiry.

Presale password is "the chip the platter and the hummus"

Was just at Barclays for the winters festival. Seems like you can get better seats and prices than what they offer online
