    The London Symphony Orchestra, the orchestra John Williams used to play all of the Star Wars films, will be coming to Atlanta on September 7th as part of their Music of Hollywood Concert Tour. They will be playing music from Star Wars and many other films. In fact, here is the complete setlist:


    Harry Potter

    Titanic

    Lord of Rings

    Star Wars

    Star Trek

    Final Fantasy

    Schindler?s List

    ET

    Rocky

    Indiana Jones

    Nightmare before Christmas

    Jurassic Park

    Out of Africa

    Gone with the Wind

    Lawrence of Arabia

    Captain Blood

    Where Eagles Dare

    The Pink Panther

    James Bond



    The concert is at the Philips Arena and tickets run from $31.00 (deck seats) to $87.00 (floor seats) and the tickets are on sale now. At first I figured I'd go it alone, but this is going to be a great event and it's got some Star Wars goodness so I figured I'd throw it out there and see who all might want to go. Another reason is also to see if we can't meet up with the Atlanta FF chapter while we're out there for some added fun.

    I'm figuring on doing a group order for tickets if there is interest (to guarantee they are together) this week so please get back to me about it as soon as possible. I know it's really short notice but I didn't know about it until TFN put it up (which was yesterday). Just let me know, and we'll go from there.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that there are also seats available in better parts of the lower deck for $64. Those seats would also be nice because you would have a really good view of the concert. If I had my druthers it would be a toss-up between there the floor seats right now, but the price is also much higher than anywhere else too.

    Speaking of price, again I know this is short notice and that being able to come up with the money can be an issue. The concert is some time off still, so if you can't huck the expense now I'll cover it and we'll figure out some kind of arrangement for paying for it between now and then.

    So that's one aboard, any other takers?

    Well that would make three total.. Will there be any more? ?[face_plain]

    I left a message for Dave so I should know something soon there. I'm actually kind of hoping everyone from FanForce will go now and that we all do floor seats because I just want to see how much this can cost.. lol

    Seriously, counting me and Dave (if he goes) that would make six tickets and then with the service charges added that would make it 567.60. I'm not complaining or anything I'm just stating the cost, and that is some serious spread for a concert. It's gonna be great though, so it's worth it.

    What ever you decide, I can pay you for mine at the next meeting, if you get them before then that is.

    Well, that's the day after the last day of Dragoncon, so I could either get an extra day at whatever hotel I'll be at and just meet you guys when you get there, or I could be cheep and come back monday then hitch a ride there and back tuesday. I'd kinda prefer the second... :) Count me in though, it'll be the neverending weekend for me, score!

    Is everyone wanting to do floor seating? I'll need to know because I figure I'm gonna place the order this Friday or Saturday (more than likely Saturday) and ticketmaster will definitely want to know.

    I know Angi wants floor seats and I would prefer either floor seats or the ones on the lower deck I mentioned before, but it's all good to me no matter what. Just let me know between now and Saturday and that's what I'll order.

    I haven't ordered the tickets yet, but there are two good reasons. For one I'm still waiting to hear from Dave who I think may want to go but hasn't called me back yet to let me know. Secondly the floor seats aren't that good and they are slowly moving to better seats. Right now they're on section 1 row V, some 22 rows back. I'm waiting on better seats in section 2 and that should open up this week or the next I'm sure. If not I will still go ahead and get tickets, but they are in no danger of selling out at this time. I figure if that opens up and I still haven't heard from Dave, I'll just buy them anyway.

    Sorry to not respond sooner but I have been a.f.k. this weekend. I have had no time to really do much on the forums, but I was still checking ticketmaster off and on the whole time. If anything changes or I order the tickets I'll post it here asap.

    Well I talked to Dave and he's in for floor seats. It was a good thing I found that out today because things got a little better on the ticket front.

    I figured I would check on the tickets and it looks like section 2 is full. They just filled section 1 and skipped to section 3 so I got tickets there. We will be on row T, seats 3-7. I had the tickets shipped via UPS 3-day so I should have everything before the next meeting. We actually ended up a little better off so it's good news all around. So you guys know the tickets came to $97.84 each, but we'll take care of that matter at the meeting.

    If you guys have any questions, let me know.

    Yippie is right, because it looks like Atlanta FF is planning to go to the concert and may meet up with us. I have a thread over there going right now about it, so feel free to swing by and say high or chime in with any suggestions because this is all in the planning stages.

    Everything is shaping up well so far, I just kinda wish September wasn't so far off. :(

    Man that was quick!

    The tickets showed up today in the mail. I only ordered the standard 3 day, but I'm not complaining. Oh and off the subject but I forgot to let Minacia know we changed meeting date so they put us up for today on the FanForce website. It scared the dickens out of me at first because I thought I had forgotten it somehow, but I'm all better now.

    I tend to doubt it because they put up the notice the same day as the meeting. Oh well, if anyone did go hopefully they checked here and found out the date had been changed and they will make it out next week, if not, I will send them a slice of pizza from the next meeting. ;)

    Sorry about not responding sooner, but I have been sick (and busy) for a few days. I feel better and things have slowed down so here's my two cents.

    I thought about bringing up having somewhere to stay but like I said in my post on the Atlanta board I work late so being out late at night doesn't bother me much. I mean having a room would give us a place to change and clean up (if needed) and it would be kind of nice not to have to hurry back, but then again there is also the added expense and having to stay over for another day.

    Anyway, I did a search about it on hotels.com and it turned up about 10 hotels within a mile of the arena. We would need two rooms for five people because there is a limit of four per room and it looks like it would be about $30-40 a person at most of the places.

    We'll talk about it more at the meeting, but if you guys want to do this and have any preferences on where to stay or whatever please let me know.

    First off, thanks for the money on the ticket Angi! That's one down, three to go but I don't even have a bill for it yet so there is no rush.

    We discussed (somewhat) whether or not to get a room in Atlanta, and while I haven't heard from Rose yet it looks like everyone else is in favor of having somewhere to stay. That's cool with me, but I am not going to charge the rooms until I have at least most of the money for the concert tickets. If it was up to me I would just charge the rooms now but it's not my card and on top of that it has a fairly large charge on it from me already, so I can't do it yet.

    If you guys would rather book a room sooner Angi has graciously offered to charge it to her debit card so it can be done ASAP. The only questions now are if Rose also wants to stay somewhere (which would also determine whether we need one room or two) and where do we want to stay.. So what do you want to do Rose?

    I figured I wouldn't see this for another week or so, but the credit card statement has come in and the ticket charges are on it. I am going to go ahead and pay this tommorrow because the bill will come up due before the 18th, but I'm going to need at least some of the ticket money from everyone involved (except for Angi, because she's paid up) by the next meeting. I'm not going to require a certain amount or anything like that but I will need some money so I can defray the out of pocket expense.

    If you guys have any questions or there are circumstances where you cannot pay anything, just let me know. Thanks!

    Sorry for the lack-o-replies. I thought I'd have better access to a compy here in VA. I also realized after the fact that I should have worked out getting you the money for my ticket some how before I left, but I'll be back for a few days this tuesday, so I'll definatly get it to you somehow then.
    As for a room, I think by then I'll have enough to cover a share so count me in for a group room. I'll post something more when I get back into town and have more time online... or atleast see you guys.
