'Pokemon Symphonic Evolutions' Live Concert Series Adds 30 New Locations And Dates [VIDEO]
People apparently are big into this whole Pokemon thing. Or they must be, because the Pokemon Company has announced 30 new dates and cities for their live concert series Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions.
The concert started last summer with sold out shows in Pittsburgh and DC, and an upcoming performance in Philly selling 5,000 tickets and the powers that be looked at that and thought, 'Huh, live music isn't dead after all.' And voila, all new dates for fans across the world.
The concert will feature music from 10 of the most recent Pokemon games, from X and Y, Ruby and Sapphire, Gold, Platinum and more. Not only will it be good for listening to some wonderful music, but also great for trading as I'm sure everyone will come packing their 3DS.
"The upcoming North America tour includes a first set of dates presented by Live Nation Entertainment in conjunction with Princeton Entertainment. Performances will take place in some of the most prestigious venues in the country, including Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts (July 18), the Theater at Madison Square Garden (June 6), The Chicago Theatre (June 20) and The Greek Theatre in LA (July 11), among others."
