It’s July 1, 2023 at Anime Expo
Several weeks ago, Atlus unveiled the existence of a Shin Megami Tensei 30th anniversary concert called “Band of Shadows.” Held at Anime Expo 2023 in July in Los Angeles, this is billed as the “first ever live anniversary concert for Atlus in the west.” It’ll focus on Shin Megami Tensei works, and not the Persona series: the focus of most of the company’s concert-based events in the past.
Interestingly, the concert is also getting the backing of voice actors from the series who will host and appear at the event, including: Christian La Monte (Demi-fiend – Shin Megami Tensei III), Casey Mongillo (Nahobino – Shin Megami Tensei V), and Daman Mills (Aogami – Shin Megami Tensei V).
According to Atlus, doors will open at 6:30PM PT on July 1, and again, tickets are exclusively tied to Anime Expo attendees. Pre-sale tickets are live now, and you can get them here.
Ticket pricing tiers for the Shin Megami Tensei Anime Expo concert:
VIP Pit (Standing) = $95
VIP Balcony = $85
GA Floor (Standing) = $70
GA Balcony = $50
Similar to many Comic-Cons and the like, there’s an add-on, too:
“A pre-show reception is scheduled and will feature early access to concert merchandise, a meet-and-greet with the show hosts, a themed autograph card signed by the show hosts, light hors d’oeuvres, and more. The pre-show reception will have limited availability and is a $125 add-on to all concert ticket purchases.”
