Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions logo
At the end of June, The Pokémon Company International announced Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions, a special live orchestral concert tour showcasing memorable music from throughout the history of the Pokémon franchise, and featuring all-new musical orchestral arrangements. With only a month to go until the first Symphonic Evolutions concert in Washington, DC on August 15th, exclusive concert preview tracks have been posted to YouTube, with more previews set to be revealed over the coming days. These preview tracks are of early demo versions of the final songs, so you can expect them to sound even better live in concert.
Tickets for the Washington, DC concert on August 15th can be purchased from Livenation, starting from $50. Tickets for the concert in Philadelphia on September 19th are also available from Ticketmaster. Additional touring locations and dates are yet to be announced, and we'll keep you posted here on Bulbanews once those become available. The concert organizers have encouraged fans to come along in cosplay, and to bring along their 3DS consoles and Trading Card Game decks for battles both before and after the events.
The 2014 Pokémon World Championships opens in Washington, DC the day after the first Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions performance, and tickets for this concert are likely to sell out fast. Be sure to get in early to guarantee your seats.
