Star Trek live concerts planned

The music from JJ Abrams' Star Trek movies will feature in special concert performances

JJ Abrams' Star Trek movies will be celebrated with live concert performances in London.

Star Trek - Live in Concert celebrates the collaboration between film and music, so as Michael Giacchino's score is brought to life by the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the Oscar-winning film movie will be shown simultaneously on the big screen.

JJ, who rebooted the franchise in 2009 and followed it up with this year's Star Trek Into Darkness, promised the event at the Royal Albert Hall would be "a thrill".

He said: "To hear Michael Giacchino's music, the secret weapon of the Star Trek series, performed live in the Royal Albert Hall, will be, I promise, a thrill.

"The full orchestra scoring sessions for the films have been among my favourite life experiences. To give the public a chance to hear this incredible music performed live is a wonderful thing. I cannot wait to go and celebrate Michael's truly remarkable achievements!"

The event will take place in 2014.

The films star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana.
