Morricone will conduct his iconic film scores live at the O2 in London on November 26, all with the backing of the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and the Crouch End Festival Chorus. Tickets for the show go on general sale on March 23. "I have very fond memories of my tours to the UK," Morricone said about his final London show. "From my very first concert at the Barbican Centre to my shows at the beautiful Royal Albert Hall and recently the spectacular nights at the O2 Arena and the Blenheim Palace grounds."

As well as planning the upcoming live show, Morricone has written the score for soon to be released Italian film A Rose In Winter. His most recent work for film was the soundtrack to 2016 movie Correspondence, starring Jeremy Irons and Olga Kurylenko.
