#FIRSTLOOK: PRIME VIDEO CANADA TO STREAM CHARITY CONCERT “THE SOUND OF 007”
Do you believe it’s already the 60th Anniversary of James Bond? Following the live October 4, 2022 EON Productions and David Arnold-created charity concert THE SOUND OF 007 at the Royal Albert Hall, Prime Video Canada will globally stream an exclusive recording of the show—The Sound of 007: LIVE from the Royal Albert Hall. At the event, guest vocalists and a host of stars will perform iconic Bond themes.
- The Sound of 007 was directed by BIFA- and BAFTA-nominee Mat Whitecross (The Kings, Oasis: Supersonic, The Road to Guantánamo) for Prime Video and MGM. The feature documentary pulls back the curtain on the remarkable history of six decades of James Bond music, taking viewers on a journey from Sean Connery’s Dr. No through to Daniel Craig’s final outing in No Time To Die. Produced by John Battsek at Ventureland, MGM, and EON Productions, the film charts the incredible history of the music, enthralling true tales behind the tunes and famous faces who have recorded some of the most beloved soundtracks in cinema.
- The Sound of 007: LIVE from the Royal Albert Hall is an exclusive recording of the official charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall on October 4. Guest vocalists will join a line up curated by five-time Bond composer David Arnold. The concert marks 60 years since the world premiere of Dr. No, the first 007 film, on October 5, 1962. Honoring the franchise’s long tradition of supporting charitable causes, the proceeds of The Sound of 007: LIVE from the Royal Albert Hall will benefit two music charities: Nordoff Robbins and The BRIT Trust. Following the concert, a custom Duesenberg guitar signed by Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli, David Arnold, and the artists will be auctioned online at Christie’s to raise additional funds for the music charities.
Additional Amazon activations in celebration of the franchise’s 60th include a [RE]DISCOVER: James Bond playlist. Amazon Music customers will be able to listen to the playlist, which will spotlight the iconic songs that have defined the Bond franchise. Amazon Music’s [RE]DISCOVER series showcases carefully curated playlists across various genres and takes listeners on a career-spanning journey of discovery, or re-discovery, through an entire body of musical work.
