MORRICONE’S FINAL DUBLIN BOW
He appeared to have said his ‘goodbyes’ last year, but we’re delighted that Ennio Morricone is returning to Dublin’s 3Arena for one final show on February 15 with Portuguese fado legend Dulce Pontes among the guest vocalists. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Saturday November 10.
The Italian’s career started in the 1940s, but comes right up to date with his breathtaking score for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, which takes him back to those Spaghetti Western glory days of yore.
“On this tour I perform a whole new programme with new highlights,” the 90-year-old maestro reveals. “Of course there will always be the classic pieces from the great Sergio Leone westerns and The Mission, but overall the experience will be different this time. I plan to include music from my collaboration with Quentin Tarantino as well as a few works from the Leone Westerns that I have not included on previous tours. I will also have Dulce Pontes joining me on stage with her passionate vocals.”
