After making its debut in Paris, France back in October 2018 as part of the 30th anniversary celebration of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball series in Europe, the Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure concert is officially ready to head to the United States. Creator and producer Overlook Events announced plans for the U.S. premiere to take place on May 21 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where fans can look forward to a combination of scenes and sounds from the anime with live vocals and a 60-piece orchestra performing the music of composer Shunsuke Kikuchi.
Los Angeles is the first stop for the U.S. tour, and future cities and dates will be announced later. Pre-sale for tickets kicks off on March 10 at 10:00am Pacific Time.
Here's what Overlook Events founder Cedric Littardi had to say about the announcement:
“As great enthusiasts of Akira Toriyama's saga, we spent long months carefully selecting and analyzing each scene to draw out the essence of the Dragon Ball story … Each scene was thoughtfully set to new orchestrations of the classic music to align with our ‘Narrative Symphonic Experience’ concept. We invite you to enjoy every minute of the ‘Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure’ concert experience.”
Stay tuned for more information on stops beyond LA.
A concert tour was previously planned for March 2020, starting at the Rosemont Theatre in Rosemont, Illinois, but that event ended up being canceled due to precautionary measures surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
