If you think the Lavender Town music sounds creepy now, just wait’ll you hear it performed by a full-piece orchestra. Similar to the Mario and Zelda-themed concerts it’s put on before, Nintendo (in conjunction with The Pokemon Company and Princeton Entertainment) is now touring an orchestral concert filled with music from Pokemon. Every game in the main series, from the original Red and Blue to the current X and Y, will have multiple entries polished up and performed smoothly by a live full-piece score of instruments.

You’ll have a chance to catch it no matter where you live, as the North American leg of the tour has thirty stops in all major cities on the continent. It’s already performed in Washington DC and Pittsburgh, and more showings are coming:
