Presented in stunning HD via a giant screen, the tour will bring to life The Hunger Games' infamous soundtrack as never before with a full symphony orchestra. Sounds pretty epic already.

The star-studded cast also features Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones, and Donald Sutherland.

The Orchestra is composed by James Newton Howard, who has scored over 100 films. A film score is where the music in the film is written specifically for that film. That includes the soundtrack, sound effects and background music etc.

James has scored some pretty amazing films including: King Kong, Batman Begins and Pretty Woman and has been awarded a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award and eight Academy Award Nominations for his work.

Canadian Indie Rock behemoths Arcade Fire also contributed to the movie's original score, contributing the ominous Panem National Anthem 'Horn of Plenty.'
