Win Tickets to Blow the Bloody Doors Off!

Blow the Bloody Doors off!
Thu 6 Feb, 7.30pm Barbican

Hosted by Phill Jupitus (Never Mind the Buzzcocks), this is a celebration of the music featured in the films which cemented Michael Caine’s reputation as iconic movie star.

The four films singled out for concert performances here are classics with music composed by an exceptional quartet of musicians – Alfie (Sonny Rollins), The Ipcress File (John Barry), The Italian Job (Quincy Jones) and Get Carter (Roy Budd).

These composers represent the best of British and American music of the time. Musical director Terry Edwards (whose recent Barbican performances include Beck: Song Reader Live and Big Star’s Third) has assembled a crack team of versatile musicians from places as far-flung as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Polar Bear and Madness.

The evening places the music centre stage, intercut with excerpts from the films.
