Let’s go back to where it all began with this concert event! 

Featuring a soundtrack that blends symphonic orchestral music with hip-hop, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Live in Concert pairs a screening of the Academy Award®-winning animated film with live musicians and turntables featuring a DJ scratcher live on stage. Emmy®-winner Daniel Pemberton composed a sprawling score of boundary-pushing original music that is complimented with song contributions by Post Malone, Lil Wayne, Jaden Smith, and Nicki Minaj. 

The hip-hop based score results in a sonic universe that is woven throughout the fabric of the film, supporting its themes of resilience and universal heroism. Joining the tour is The Broadway Sinfonietta, an all-women and majority women-of-color orchestra led by conductor Emily Marshall.


Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask. A superhero classic for a new generation, Miles is an Afro-Latinx teen who is bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway and gains mysterious powers. Joined by spider-heroes from parallel universes, Miles must master his new powers to save his city from a villain who could destroy it all.


DANIEL PEMBERTON is an Ivor Novello winning and multi-BAFTA nominated composer well known for embracing a wide range of musical mediums—from electronic to orchestral—throughout his work. After more than a decade establishing himself as one of the most inventive and experimental voices in British television—scoring countless Emmy® and BAFTA award-winning dramas and documentaries such as Complicit (2013), Peep Show (2003–2015), Upstairs Downstairs (2010), Desperate Romantics (2009), Space Dive (2012), Occupation (2009), and Hiroshima (2005)—Pemberton moved into the world of film with the period supernatural thriller The Awakening (2011). His hybrid choral, orchestral, and electronic score caught the ear of Ridley Scott who, heavily impressed with the standout work and what he called the composer’s “10,000 hours in the garage” hired the composer to score his feature The Counselor (2013). He collaborated again with Scott on the director’s first foray into television—The Vatican (2014). This work, alongside scores to other features such as Blood (2012), In Fear (2013), and Cuban Fury (2014), led him to be named “Discovery Of The Year” at the prestigious World Soundtrack Awards 2014. Other credits include the acclaimed soundtrack to Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015). Featuring a kaleidoscope of unusual instruments—including cimbaloms, harpsichords, bass flutes, and exotic percussion—the bold 1960’s influenced music caught the attention of cinema goers and critics alike and has established him as one of the most versatile and exciting voices working in film today. Now collaborating with yet another legendary director—Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyl— Pemberton continues to approach the world of scoring from a new angle, creating another unique and unexpectedly inventive soundtrack with his latest works—Steve Jobs (2015), Gold (2016), and King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017). Well known for his creative and incredibly versatile approach to writing no two scores ever sound the same.
