TCG Entertainment, in conjunction with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment and DC, will bring Warner Bros. Pictures’ 1989 blockbuster film, “Batman,” to symphony halls around the globe as part of its DC in Concert series. Celebrating the film’s 35th anniversary, the film will be projected onto a large screen while Danny Elfman’s musical score is performed by a live orchestra.  

Released in 1989, Warner Bros. Pictures’ DC Super Hero film, “Batman,” was the top-grossing film that year. The film was composer, Danny Elfman’s, first collaboration with director, Tim Burton, and the score was later nominated for a Grammy award.  

“Hot on the heels of our success with our first DC in Concert tour, we are excited to bring the classic 1989 ‘Batman’ and its acclaimed score to diehard fans and new generations for the film’s 35th anniversary,” says Stephen Cook, president, TCG Entertainment. “We create an unforgettable concert experience and are proud of the added creativity the DC in Concert series offers audiences to make the night an epic event.” 

Attendees will enjoy an enhanced concert experience with spectacular stage lighting, post-event autographs, merchandise sales and more. Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite DC Super Hero.

In “Batman,” The Dark Knight, defender of law and order in Gotham City, treads the shadow zone between right and wrong, fighting with only his skill in martial arts and his keenly honed mind to defend the innocent and to purge the memory of his parents’ brutal murder – always keeping his true identity as millionaire philanthropist, Bruce Wayne, a closely guarded secret. 

The “Batman” concert is presented by MGP Live in select cities and is part of “DC In Concert,” a global touring film concert series featuring a live symphony orchestra performing, to picture, every note from fan-favorite blockbuster films starring DC Super Heroes.  

The “Batman” tour kicks off January 2024 in Los Angeles at the Dolby Theater and stops in 12 U.S. cities before heading to Paris and London. Fans can visit for tour dates and ticket information.
