The Academy Award winning actor, Anthony Hopkins is planning to have his own piano world tour in which he will perform his own composition and narrate stories over the music.
Winning an Oscar probably wasn't enough for as he revealed his plan on being a concert pianist. Times reported that the 'The Silence of the Lamb' actor will performed the music he has composed over the years. In his world tour concert, he will be accompanied by an ensemble of orchestra and will narrated stories over the music.

The tour is expected to start in Melbourne, Australia. Malcolm Luker, an Australian musician and film-score mixer who plan the tour said, "I think people will be surprised by Tony's talents. He's a great pianist and an incredibly pleasant and softly spoken man. It's going to happen either next year or early 2009 but at the moment we're doing the preliminaries of checking timing, availability and venues. [It] will feature Sir Anthony playing music, narrating stories over a live orchestra and telling anecdotes about his movie career, such as his famed role in The Silence of The Lambs."

Though the 69-year-old reached stardom through his exceptional work as actor, his real passion is music stating, "Playing the piano is my one abiding passion." In his younger year, Hopkins received scholarship to the Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff because of his piano's talent.

His coming world tour will not be Hopkins' first experience in music business. In 1986, he released a single, 'Distant Star' which peaked at number 75 in the British Top 100 chart. The piano tour will not be Hopkins' first professional music venture. In 1986 a single was released of him singing Distant Star. It crept into the British Top 100 chart, peaking for one week at number 75. He also wrote down the score for his new movie '', premiered at Sundance Festival in February 2007.
