In a time when it seems like all is dark and falling apart, there is usually that one thing that you can turn to that makes everything better. For many of us, that one thing is music. Since 2017, the Dragon Quest Wind Orchestra Concert has been an annual event for the last 4 years where fans of the series can convene and enjoy a night of orchestrated music from one of their favorite series. Up until now, the outlook for the 2020 edition of the concert was looking fairly bleak and uncertain due to the situations surrounding COVID-19. But we’re happy to report that the show will be going on as planned at the end of the year in Tokyo.
The concert will be split across two days and three performances. Each performance will focus on different titles in the Dragon Quest franchise. The breakdown of shows is as follows:
6 PM Start／「Dragon Quest Ⅶ,Ⅷ,Ⅸ」
2 PM Start／「Dragon Quest Ⅳ,Ⅴ,Ⅵ」
6 PM Start／「Dragon Quest Ⅰ,Ⅱ,Ⅲ」
With the titles being split up, there are multiple ticket packages that one can purchase if they’re looking to attend the event. You can purchase a single ticket, a ticket which covers Dragon Quest I through VI, as well as a ticket which covers both days, all performances. The single show ticket will set you back ¥6,000, where the two show ticket is ¥11,500 and the three show ticket is ¥16,500. Keep in mind that these are all “S Rank” seats, so they’re going to have the best view. Not a bad price if you ask me.
Tickets for the Dragon Quest Wind Orchestra Concert are available now at the Kyodo Tokyo website. With the whole Coronavirus situation, I’m honestly not too sure how quickly these will sell. There is a possibility they will sell out fairly fast, but part of me feels that this isn’t going to be the case with the way things are now. I guess can only wait and see.
