Also, with the announcement yesterday that the NZSO would be performing Howard Shore's Trilogy Symphony that same night, I think that would automatically become LOTR Fan Central - and I'm guessing that's where you'll want to be, if you're a fan.
Ticketek will reverse your credit card transactions and refund you - however they can't refund the NZ$8 service charge. We are not happy to leave you out of pocket like that, and wish to refund the service charge ourselves. Since you'll be in Wellington on the Saturday/ Sunday and we'll need to see proof that you DID buy a ticket to the Black Tie Banquet, we will organise a pick-up point where you can get that $8 refund. Probably one of the hotels where the Red Carpet tours people are staying.
Once again, many apologies to all of you who were looking forward to this event. I'll post the concert news below, in the hopes that it will offer an appealing alternative for Saturday 29th.
Trilogy Symphony for New Zealand
A once-in-a-lifetime concert event sees Oscar-winning film composer Howard Shore conduct the NZSO in a one-off performance of ‘The Lord of The Rings: A Symphony in six parts for Orchestra, Chorus and Soloists’.
New Line Cinema, in association with CAMI and J&A Productions, have announced that the concert will take place at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington on November 29, and will be part of the celebrations surrounding the world premiere of the third and final Lord of the Rings film, ‘The Return of
‘Lord of the Rings Symphony’ will feature music adapted from Mr Shore’s scores from all three of Peter Jackson’s astonishing trilogy: ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’, ‘The Two Towers’ and ‘The Return of the King’.
Tickets for the concert are strictly limited and will be available through Ticketek from October 27.
