Bridget Jones's Diary is coming back to the big screen
The concert will tour all over the UK kicking off in Glasgow on November 2 and finishing up in Manchester on November 6
Just when we thought the chick flick of the millennium couldn't get any better, Bridget Jones's Diary just announced a concert with a live orchestra alongside the film which will be streaming in HD on a massive screen.
The one-of-a-kind concert tour starts this November and will venture across the UK. Bridget Jones’s Diary will be brought to life with a 60-piece orchestra with a line-up of fabulous orchestrated music including 'Respect' by Aretha Franklin, 'It's Raining Men' by Geri Halliwell and 'Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)' by Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye.
The concert and the 2001 film is based on the novel of the same name by Helen Fielding and the film adaptation starring Renée Zellweger follows the plot-line of a neurotic 32-year-old Londoner Bridget Jones trying to find love within a year and keeping a diary of her encounters.
This leads her to a love triangle with her beguiling boss, played by Hugh Grant, and a disagreeable acquaintance played by Colin Firth.
The initial release of the film grossed over $280 million worldwide, also earning Zellweger an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. Bridget Jones’s Diary also followed up two sequels: 2004’s Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, and 2016’s Bridget Jones’s Baby.
The score for the movie was composed by Patrick Doyle, who has also composed music for blockbusters including Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Thor.
The concert film with live orchestra begins in Glasgow on November 2 and will commence to other cities including Edinburgh, London and Birmingham before finishing up in Manchester on November 6.
Here is the list:
2nd November - Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
3rd November - Edinburgh Usher Hall
4th November - London Apollo Victoria Theatre
5th November - Birmingham Symphony Hall
6th November - Manchester Bridgewater Hall
Tickets for the London gig will cost between £29.50 - £70, while other venues will go up to £65.
