Pokémon symphony concert tour gets UK date

Something to trumpet.

Pokéflutes at the ready, Trainers: the Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions live concert tour has been given a UK date.

The event will take place at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday, 20th December following a series of dates in North America.

Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions follows in the footsteps of Nintendo's officially licensed and globally successful Legend of Zelda concerts, which have played three dates in London over the past five years.

Symphonic Evolutions will star the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and include themes from all six generations of the monster-catching franchise, from Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue on the Game Boy until X and Y on 3DS.

"Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions is a spectacular showcase of the memorable music that has been a hallmark of the video games for nearly 20 years," said Pokémon Company exec J.C. Smith, making us all feel old.

"The concert is a thank-you to fans and an invitation to share our passion for Pokémon by reliving some of our fondest memories of Pokémon. We look forward to seeing fans of all ages enjoying this very special orchestral event together."

Tickets will go on sale shortly.
