“I don’t have the strength to stay away from you any more,” says Edward Cullen to Bella Swan in the first Twilight movie. “You’re like my own personal brand of heroin.”

It was after this first movie that this unexpected addiction of millions of teenagers to the five-film vampire saga happened, which made $3.3bn worldwide, became a cultural phenomenon, and altered the future of female-led cinema for ever. All thanks to Lionsgate properties, this Phenomenon is all set to make a come back with a film-concert tour.

The hit movie franchise, based on Stephenie Meyer's book series, is getting a film-concert tour just like Lionsgate properties "The Hunger Games" and "La La Land", reports variety.com.Lionsgate is launching the "Twilight in Concert" world tour in August in Brazil, followed by stops in Australia and the UK.

The event will feature a full orchestra performing Carter Burwell's original film score timed to a screening of "Twilight".

Lionsgate's Jennifer Brown said "We are thrilled to launch another live-to-film tour in the footsteps of our ‘Hunger Games' and ‘La La Land' international concert events,"

The original "Twilight", starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, was directed by Catherine Hardwicke with screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg. It will be interesting to see if the film - concert will add on to the fanbase twilight already has or not.
