LOS ANGELES (AP) — "La La Land" is getting its overture back.

An instrumental overture that was cut from the hit musical film starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone will be added back in for a touring concert show that begins later this month at the Hollywood Bowl.

The film's Oscar-winning composer Justin Hurwitz says the overture is one of two new pieces of music that will be played during the live shows. The other is a new piece of music that joins together several key melodies from the film, which starred Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

The "La La Land In Concert: A Live-to-Film Celebration" is scheduled for 50 performances in the U.S. and internationally.

"La La Land" was nominated for a history-tying 14 Academy Awards and won six Oscars in February.
