To commemorate the 30th anniversary of ET, John was once again discussing with Steven which clips he could use during the concert. Steven offered to give him the last 2 reels of the film, updated into HD with the voice overs and sound effects so that the orchestra could play the music along with the film. Which was awesome! We watched the last part of the movie, which started when they steal the van with ET in it, the police chase on the bikes, flying to the forest, then saying goodbye to ET as his spaceship flies off. Briggs was a little tired that night, but when I pointed out to him how cool it was that the music we were hearing in the movie was actually coming from the stage and the orchestra, he smiled real big at that! At the beginning of the concert Ty asked, "Mom, are they playing real music, then those guys on the stage are just playing some of it?" He had never really thought about where real music comes from. It was a neat experience to show them how "real" music is made.
This is a video of music from Superman. The fans were very respectful and only waved the lightsabers during Star Wars music, but Superman got them a little excited and they couldn't help waving them around a bit.
