Back in 2009 and 2010, Lucasfilm put together a Concert tour featuring the legendary music of John Williams performed live by an orchestra with clips from the films playing on a massive screen behind them in arenas around the world. The concert was hosted by C3PO actor Anthony Daniels who would also tell the story of Star Wars between music pieces.
The concert looks poised to make a comeback in 2016, with the official website being updated to say that concert will be making a return in 2016, though no venues or dates have been announced. There is an official description of the concert, which reads,
Take part in an unforgettable concert experience with cutting-edge visual technology and sound design. The iconic music of John Williams will guide you through the legendary battle of light and dark and immerse you into the worlds, characters and story of Star Wars.

I'm very excited by this announcement. I saw Star Wars: In Concert back in 2009 and it helped reinvigorate my fandom. I was also lucky enough to go to the Comic Con concert that JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy put together at San Diego Comic Con which was very similar to Star Wars: In Concert in many regards. Having been to both I can tell you that this will be a can't miss experience and I highly recommend checking it out. I know I'll be buying my tickets as soon as they go on sale!
