Star Wars Live In Concert (The Empire Strikes Back) … altered the deal on merch

When I went: 21 September 2019

Music Owl Hoot rating: 4/5

Location: Royal Albert Hall, London

Performers: Philharmonia Orcestra, Dirk Brossé (conductor)

Creative team: John Williams (composer)

Approximate price: £62

Special points: Live film experience

Best bit: Introduction of Imperial March and ending scene with Skywalker twins

If I could change one thing: Better merch for women and smaller people


As with Star Wars Live In Concert (A New Hope), this was a great experience and the orchestra performed the music really well. I wasn’t impressed with the lack of suitable merch for women or smaller people (surely the people in charge realise that Star Wars has had female fans for some time now, and they might want T-shirts too?!) but apart from that the Royal Albert Hall was a great setting for this concert.

The famous Imperial March is played about 1000 times throughout this film but it is still quite thrilling, and it’s fun to watch arguably the best Star Wars film with an enthusiastic audience of superfans (some of whom came wearing their own stormtrooper and Darth Vader helmets).
