The Sonic Symphony debut in London was a huge success! With the orchestra playing many favorite songs from across the Sonic series, and even music veterans Tomoya Ohtani and Jun Senoue being on stage, the fandom entered and left the show full of excitement!
The only thing that didn’t seem to have gone as planned, however, was the merch distribution, which was handled by a third-party company that failed to foresee the massive demand that the show would bring, according to Shota Nakama, one of the show’s producers. Nakama issued an apology and an explanation on Twitter but reassured fans that the team has been swiftly working on an online merch store for those who were unfortunate not to be able to get something at the merch booth.
That doesn’t seem to be the end of the show’s hiccups, as some fans started receiving emails and notifications about the cancellation of the Symphony in Dusseldorf, Germany, which was scheduled for November 17th. The website only states that the show was canceled due to logistical problems, with no other replacement date planned for now. However, fans who bought tickets can get a refund at their respective ticket offices.
The Paris show was also delayed to next year, June 2nd, with no official explanation from the show producers or the venue website as to why. The show was originally scheduled for this Friday, September 22nd.
Nakama has since stated on Twitter that he will be making an official statement soon.
Hopefully, fans from Germany and France can receive an explanation of what happened and some sort of alternative. We’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds, so be sure to stay tuned to Sonic City for more Sonic Symphony News and Updates!
