Sega is reportedly planning to stage a Sonic the Hedgehog music concert in 2021 as part of its 30th anniversary plans for the franchise.
“Throughout 2021, Sega will be celebrating Sonic’s 30th anniversary with new game content, a music concert with special guests and a wide array of new licensing and merchandising partnerships,” according to the magazine, which focuses on brand licensing and extension opportunities.
Publisher Sega previously promised to mark Sonic’s 30th anniversary with the release of new games and some major announcements.
Over 1.14 billion Sonic game units have been sold and downloaded since the series debuted in 1991, according to the publisher.
This February, Paramount Pictures released the first teaser for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which is scheduled to hit cinemas on April 8, 2022.
Last month, Netflix announced a new Sonic the Hedgehog 3D animated series called Sonic Prime.
Premiering in 2022, the 24-episode family-friendly series is billed as “a high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse” rests in Sonic’s hands, as well as “a journey of self-discovery and redemption”.
