So they’ve hired Anthony Daniels to host the show, but shouldn’t this gig really have gone to Bill Murray?

Star Wars: In Concert is a unique event that combines John Williams’ unforgettable music, performed by a live symphony orchestra and chorus, with specially edited footage from all six Star Wars films. Through each musical piece, audiences will experience the key themes, characters and story elements of the epic Star Wars saga from a new perspective. Taking a remarkable excursion into the heart of a galaxy far, far away.

A true multi-media experience, Star Wars: In Concert features a giant, specially constructed LED screen – one of the largest screens ever taken on tour – onto which the newly edited film sequences will be projected and synchrnoized to a live performance from John Williams’ thrilling scores. Anthony Daniels, the actor who portrays C-3PO in all six films, will introduce each segment of the two hour show, guiding audiences through the Star Wars story in a fresh and exciting way.

Tickets for Star Wars: In Concert at Nassau Coliseum (11/21/09 – 2 shows) and the Izod Center (11/20/09) go on Amex presale starting Monday, October 5 (today) at 10AM. On a side note, the absence of an MSG date is a little surprising… are we too good for Star Wars in this town?

Some classic SNL video featuring “Nick The Lounge Singer” after the jump.
