So We Can Finally Wear Our Slave Leia and Chewbacca Costumes to the Symphony?

In the ever expanding quest to attract new audience members to attend classical music/opera performances comes word that "Star Wars in Concert" will begin its national (and future intergalactic) tour tonight in Orange County and Los Angeles.

Comprised of a two hour symphonic concert with big screen footage from the Star Wars movies plus lasers and explosions producers hope to attract "Star Wars" enthusiasts, older rock'n' roll fans looking for a new kind of live show, and, a distant third, classical music aficionados."

Comments Lucas Liscensing president Howard Roffman, "If you look at the numbers, there are a lot more people today consuming 'Star Wars' than consuming classical music."

Ouch.

Which goes to show everything is better when you add lasers.

And oh, Han shoots first.
