Decades before baby Yoda dominated our social feeds and memes, sci-fi nerd god George Lucas introduced the world to the orphan Luke Skywalker, a dashing Han Solo, a cinnamon bun-rocking Princess Leia and an evil man who was really into the all-black and helmet look. While you may have seen the 1977 classic that inspired memorable franchises and spinoffs (as well as a trilogy we all wish we could forget), you won’t have experienced the thrill of a live orchestra performing the full score during Luke’s nail-biting dogfight through the narrow trenches of the Death Star.

Yes, you may think you know all the lyrics to the CrazySexyCool album but this is the ultimate moment to make your teenage-self proud when you scream the late, great Left Eye’s “Waterfalls” rap back at Chilli and T-Boz. [Editor’s note: TLC has postponed their Saturday concert due to a family emergency.]
