    Apologies if this has been mentioned already but someone has put together a “full concert” edit using footage from Amazon Prime and filled in the gaps. For those of you interested, find it here:
    I really do hope Amazon come to their senses and upload a full uncut version or even better release an extended documentary/ concert Blu Ray!

    Super annoyed that someone beat me to it as I’ve been working on my own version since going to the concert. Had a massively busy month. So didn’t think anyone else would think to do it. Finished my cut last week but I was hesitant to upload it to YouTube.

    Anyways this version posted has rough hard edits. I have gone for a more professional edit, I have layered audio from both sources to blend transitions and added some audience applause to bridge the gaps and change in audio.

    I’ve also included the encore performance of the James Bond theme and added title cards for the missing tracks.

    I’ve also put it on blu ray for myself and my friend who didn’t go.

    Happy to share my work. PM Me for details.

    Photos below of the cover art I made!

    Brilliant work

    I watched the first hour yesterday. It is definitely a better experience with all the parts included. The OHMSS soundtrack is brilliant as always andcI also enjoyed the bit from the LALD boat chase a lot. Why is there shown the scene but nowhere else?

    I liked all the songs so far, my highlight was Lulu. Always loved that song and she still nailed it perfectly. She also looks like she had a lot of fun on stage.
    SF was good but Adele can't really be replaced. The only small let down so far for me is the YOLT title song. It was too different for my taste and why does she wear an arrow in the middle of her face (?)
    The dress of garbage was a bit garbage, wasn't it.

    Will try and watch the full performance soon as only seen the Amazon version. Have to say? Celeste? Oh my?! Thanks for sharing the full version.

    Yes, Celeste was a bit ouch, tbh.

    I do wish somebody like Sade had covered YOLT, her voice is beautiful. I do like Celeste but that wasn't her finest hour, although to be fair, Nancy struggled to record the song initially.

    Thank you for sharing the full concert

    Very good concert overall. A bit sad that there wasn't time to play anything from the later Moore films or from TLD. I would have loved when i.e. the action cue from AVTAK (PTS or Golden Gate showdown) would have been played.

    Arnold really was a surprisingly good match for YKMN. I would love to see him back for Bond 26.

    Y'know what, mate, I can hear that totally. Good call.

    I sincerely hope Arnold will return to Bond too! You can see his love for the franchise. This concert makes that certainly clear if their was any doubt?!

    Saw the Casino Royale in Concert on Thursday night at the Royal Albert Hall. An amazing experience and the Royal Philharmonic did Arnold's score proud.

    David Arnold introduced the evening and played on guitar for the end title Bond music. Apparently Michael G Wilson was also in attendance.

    As well as hearing the score live, it was nice seeing CR on the big screen for the first time in 16 years. Not sure why subtitles were needed as the sound was clear as a bell.

    Altogether an unforgettable evening!

    No @MaxCasino no Sam Mendes as far as I'm aware. I believe he's introducing the Skyfall and Spectre concerts.

    I just wish they'd had one for QOS...!

    Did any bits stand out? I always love the Mondeo bit when Bond first arrives in the Bahamas.

    Why is QOS always left out? Because it is too short or because it is not mainstream friendly due to the fast editing?
    CR and SF were also played in concert in Switzerland and SP will be next this month. Unfortunately, no QOS. I loved CR in Concert (a few years back) but I wouldn't care that much for the music in SP. QOS, on the other hand would be something I would definitely pay for. I love this soundtrack.

    Agreed, QOS is one of Arnold's very best.

    The part of QOS that always sticks out to me is the lone guitar line at the end of the chaotic boat chase/fight in the beginning, as Bond is driving away with Camille unconscious in the boat. I'll see if I can find a link.

    @mtm yes, the backing for YKMN was outstanding and the Miami airport sequence was a full on orchestral assault! The orchestra really worked hard for that one! And obviously the end title Bond theme was just wonderful. First time i've ever heard it live.

    Yes, that's a great bit. My favourite part is the beautiful tune when Bond and Camille walk through the desert after the plane action and the action bits like in the PTS also stand out more than in other movies after Barry.

    Yeah, I'm glad I went, as I was gutted I missed the one before in 2017.

    Would love to see some of the other Bond's get the live orchestra treatment!

    Yes please! Glad you got to go, sounds terrific. I think that would have been my pick of the three too- the music has a few moments where it's the hero of the film, especially the ending as you say. It must've been quite exciting knowing that big ending was coming up!

    You could certainly feel the anticipation in the audience 😁
