Warner Brothers has announced that Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer and heralded guitarist Johnny Marr (The Smiths, Modest Mouse, The Cribs) will perform a special concert backed by a 20-piece orchestra this Tuesday, July 13th. Immediately following the film’s Los Angeles premiere, the one-time concert takes place at the official after-party on the same day as the soundtrack, Inception: Music From The Motion Picture, is released by Warner Bros. Records. Proceeds from tickets sold to the Inception film premiere and after-party event will benefit the Alliance for Climate Protection.
Zimmer will sign copies of Inception: Music From The Motion Picture at Amoeba Music, 6400 W. Sunset Blvd., in Los Angeles on Thursday, July 15th, at 8 pm. A midnight screening of Inception will follow at the nearby Arclight Hollywood Cinema, 6360 W. Sunset Blvd.
The first 200 fans to purchase the Inception Soundtrack fan pack will receive a movie poster, the CD soundtrack, a guaranteed place in line to meet Zimmer at the signing, and a ticket to the midnight screening – the first official showing of the film – at the Arclight Hollywood. Packages go on sale at Amoeba for $35 beginning on July 13th at 10:30 am.
Inception, directed by Christopher Nolan (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) and starring an international cast led by Leonardo DiCaprio, opens nationwide in theatres and IMAX on July 16th.
The performance will stream live to fans at ustream.tv/inceptionpremiere.
