Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is embarking on a UK arena tour courtesy of promoter Senbla.

The film will tour with a live orchestra recreating John Williams’ iconic musical score. The new tour follows the success of 2018’s arena tour of Star Wars: A New Hope Live with Orchestra.

Fans will be able to experience the scope and grandeur of the beloved Star Wars films in a live symphonic concert experience, as the Star Wars: Film Concert Series continues with Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, beginning at Manchester Arena on 27th September, before moving onto Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham and Glasgow.

The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding saga. As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader.

Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force. Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation – and a life-or-death battle with Darth Vader – awaits.

The tour dates are:

Fri 27 Sept – Manchester Arena
Sat 28 Sept – Leeds First Direct Arena
Sun 29 Sept – Glasgow SEC Armadillo
Tue 1 Oct – Birmingham Arena
Wed 2 Oct – Liverpool Arena
