To celebrate the 30th anniversary of “Dragon Ball Z,’ Toei Animation Inc. and Funimation have announced that “Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure,” a unique concert experience, is coming to North America.
This concert will combine scenes and sounds of “Dragon Ball” together with live vocals, a 60-piece orchestra, and the music of Japanese composer Shunsuke Kikuchi into an immersive multimedia event for fans. The North American tour of the “Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure” will kick off on Friday, March 27, 2020 in Chicago, Ill. at the Rosemont Theatre, featuring the World Festival Symphony Orchestra conducted by Eric Roth. Additional dates and locations are to be announced.
The “Dragon Ball” anime franchise consists of four television series: “Dragon Ball, “Dragon Ball Z,” “Dragon Ball GT,” and “Dragon Ball Super: Broly.”
“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. While reconstructing each arc, each scene was thoughtfully set to new orchestrations of the classic music, to align with our Narrative Symphonic Experience concept,” said Overlook Events in a statement. “Nothing was left to chance. Now, we invite you to enjoy every minute of this concert experience, from the opening trumpet notes heralding the first transformation of Son Roku, ready to unleash his uncontrollable fury against the mighty Frieza.”
Tickets for the first performance of “Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure” will go on sale at 10 a.m. CST on Nov. 15, 2019 via Ticketmaster. To purchase yours, click here.
