Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure Event Announced for London Performance in August 2022

Overlook Events have announced that the Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure, a once in a life-time-concert experience that brings the soundtrack of the Dragon Ball franchise to live music event, will be taking place at the SSE Arena, Wembley, in London on Sunday 7th August 2022.

This one-night-only event will see the music of legendary Japanese composer Shunsuke Kikuchi performed by the world-renowned Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and joined by Dragon Ball’s original singer Hiroki Takahashi. The event will see music from the franchise being performed live in time with iconic scenes to deliver a unique narrative musical experience. Previously the Dragon Ball Symphonic adventure has been played in Paris, Brussels, Lausanne, Barcelona and, for the first time ever, will be making its way to the UK.

Created by Overlook Events, the concert is built on the Narrative Symphonic Experience concept, which mixes a symphony orchestra with rock instruments, live vocals, sound effects and light synchronized to a compilation of anime excerpts projected on giant screens, following a strict narrative. As a result, ‘Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure’ is a concert experience that achieves a musical and technical mastery still very rare in an industry dominated by cinema-concerts.

Overlook describes their creative process: “As great enthusiasts of Akira Toriyama’s saga, we spent long months carefully selecting and analysing 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. 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 Goku, ready to unleash his uncontrollable fury against the mighty Frieza.”

Tickets for the Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure will go on sale at 10am on Friday 10th December 2021 from www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk with the event itself taking place on Sunday 7th August 2022. Naturally fans of Dragon Ball music are urged to pre-book tickets as soon as available to avoid missing out. Further details relating to the event will be shared on the Dragon Ball Symphonic Adventure Twitter, Instagram and Facebook channels.

In the meantime Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super are available on DVD and Blu-Ray (where available) in the UK via FUNimation UK.
