Ennio Morricone Cancels (or Postpones?) Hollywood Bowl Appearance
We've received word that legendary film composer Ennio Morricone, creator of some of the most recognizable scores in the history of the medium, has canceled/postponed* his first-ever appearance in LA. No reason has been given as of yet, but we'll let you know when we find out.
Truth be told, we've been working on a Morricone feature for the print version of LA Weekly for the past few weeks -- you can read the two segments here and here -- and learned of the cancellation/postponement just as we were going to press. The editorial staff, with the help of Weekly intern John Wheeler, interviewed a whole host of film composers regarding the Italian composer Morricone, who is best known for his scores to Sergio Leone's three so-called "spaghetti" westerns: A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.
*No word yet on whether this is a postponement or cancellation, nor do we know about refunds yet. We'll let you know when we know.
