Annual Monster Hunter concert to stream online later this month

The show will incorporate tracks from Monster Hunter Rise for the first time since its release.

Details about the annual Monster Hunter orchestral concert were recently released, an annual event that serves as a showcase for the music of publisher Capcom’s popular action series. Fans can watch the concert online on September 28.

Started in 2009 to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the series, the show has been yearly since 2014 as the composers of the games join with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra to play some of the most memorable music in the series. In 2019, the show took to the road, playing five cities in Japan to celebrate the 15th anniversary. When the pandemic hit in 2020, though, the show was conducted online for the first time, allowing fans worldwide to enjoy the music.

Hirofumi Kurita will be handling conducting duties as he has since 2014, and series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto will give a behind-the-scenes speech. A host of other musicians will join them to play the music from the hit series.

Though initially a sensation only in its home territory of Japan, Monster Hunter continues to make inroads worldwide since the release of the massively popular Monster Hunter: World. This year’s Monster Hunter Rise continues the trend and has gotten fantastic reviews since its release, an impressive feat for a series that’s difficult to get into. A Switch exclusive for now, it will be released for PC next year.

This year’s Monster Hunter concert will be streamed as well, with tickets selling for $28. Video on demand will be available right after the concert until October 11.
