Sonic the Hedgehog Concert Experience Coming to Los Angeles Next Week

John Nguyen

Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the most popular video game characters of all time. The character had many video game iterations and two successful live-action films, with the first one grossing over $319 million at the global box office and the second one over $405 million. A third film is in the works with an expected release in 2024. Sonic fans have it good right now.

Next week, fans of the music of Sonic the Hedgehog are in for a treat if they’re in the Los Angeles area. The World Tour of Sonic Symphony, an immersive, in-person concert experience, will have two shows at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, CA, on Saturday, September 30 (a matinee at 3:30 p.m. and an 8 p.m. show).

The concert experience will feature music from the Sonic franchise spanning over three decades, with genres ranging from 8-bit and 16-but tunes to rock and EDM. The live performance includes a symphony orchestra and rock band, and it will be enhanced with Sonic moments shown on the big screen. Brand new musical arrangements include an arrangement made by Tee Lopes, the composer of Sonic Mania.

For tickets, you can visit the official Sonic Symphony website.

The World Tour of Sonic Symphony debuted at the Barbican Hall in London on September 16, 2023. The tour followed the standalone Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary Symphony and Brazil Game Show 2022 performances.
