It looks like Sonic the Hedgehog and friends are hitting the road with the announcement of a huge in-person orchestral world tour kicking off later in 2023, dubbed the Sonic Symphony World Tour.
Created in partnership between SEGA, soundtrec, SOHO Live and brought to life by MGP Live, the shows will encompass over three decades of timeless Sonic the Hedgehog music from the earliest 8-bit sounds to the modern and eclectic mix of EDM, pop and rock in more recent titles, toured across the globe via a full symphony orchestra (and a rock band). Fans will be able to see iconic moments from across the series’ games displayed on a big screen as the music is played along.
So far only the debut dates for London and Los Angeles, on September 16th and September 30th respectively, have been announced, but the official website has a form for keen fans to register and received updates on their local regions as news rolls out. Fingers crossed this one happens to make its way Down Under. We’re home to Knuckles’ extended echidna family, after all.
Sonic Symphony is an immersive live experience that celebrates more than three decades of music from SEGA’s iconic mascot. From the classic 8-bit and 16-bit tunes to rock and EDM songs, this concert will take you on a musical journey through the colourful world of Sonic the Hedgehog.
Relive your favourite Sonic moments, brought to life by a full symphony orchestra. Sonic Symphony will be an electrifying tribute to the music that has defined generations of gamers, old and new.
Don’t miss the chance to experience the sounds of Sonic like never before!
