Pre-sale now open for Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions’ return to London.
Live performances of video game music are big business, with everything from Tommy Tallarico’s all-encompassing Video Games Live to franchise-specific symphonies featuring the likes of Final Fantasy and The Legend of Zelda, pulling in punters around the world.
After sold out performances all over the globe – including a riotous performance in LA during E3 week – the Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions tour is returning to London for its second year. The games’ famous soundtracks will be brought to life by none other than the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and accompanied by videos and visuals representing the entire franchise.
The symphony will play two dates at London’s Eventim Apollo – or Hammersmith Apollo, if you are a long-time muso – on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th December, 2016.
Music will come from every generation of the mainline Pokémon games and will hopefully include our favourite, the Dialga/Palkia battle theme from Pokémon Diamond & Pearl.
As well as some cracking music expect to see lots of trading and battling during the build up, and plenty of overpriced merch on sale too.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
