(UPDATE 6/1/15) From the Gameboy screen to your local opera house, Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions is taking the sounds of childhood battles with Pidgey and Magikarp and refurbishing them behind a full orchestral section. The symphony will continue its current North American tour through mid-September and it’s bringing big demand for tickets on the secondary market.

‘Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions’ World Tour Announced
(3/27/15) Dust off your Gameboy, crank the volume wheel and re-familiarize yourself with “Gotta Catch ‘Em All!” – the Pokemon franchise is headed to a city near you.
Just days after announcing dates for the upcoming ‘The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses’ Tour, Nintendo has planned a road route for another smash-hit orchestral production. The ‘Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions’ Tour will be playing every song you heard while callousing your fingers on the road to becoming a Pokemon Master.
The tour kicks off on May 1 at Joseph Meyerhoff Hall in Baltimore and will wind around North America, Mexico and Australia through early 2016, ultimately wrapping at the DeVos Performance Hall in Grand Rapids, Michigan on February 5.
The 30-show tour itinerary includes stops in major cities like New York, Chicago, San Diego, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Boston and Orlando. It’s slated to hit Mexico for shows at Mexico City’s Auditorio Nacional and Monterrey Arena in October before playing two dates at the Sydney Opera House in Australia in November.
The symphony will feature songs from several recent and classic Pokemon games, including Pokemon Blue, Red and Yellow, Crystal, Diamond, Platinum and X and Y. A European tour is scheduled for the spring of next year, and additional information will be announced soon.
General tickets go on sale this Saturday, March 28. However, die-hard fans can access a presale one day prior by using the code MELOETTA via Live Nation. Secondary market tickets are already available.
