Crunchyroll to Bring Two Big Concerts to SDCC 2024

Today Crunchyroll announced their plans for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con, which will be held later this month from July 24-28. Included in their plans are two once-in-a-lifetime musical events featuring J-pop idol LiSA and the globally popular anime One Piece.

On Friday, July 26th, LiSA – the voice behind Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba’s Opening Theme “Gurenge” – will perform in the United States for the first time in nearly ten years. This is ahead of the North American premiere of her concert film LiVE is SMiLE ALWAYS -LANDER-, which opens August 17th.

Experimental musician and performance artist Alice Longyu Gao will open the evening with a set inspired by her deep connection to NANA, a classic anime about romance and music.

On Saturday, July 27th, the One Piece 25th Anniversary: Symphonic Voyage will set sail. The 40+-piece San Diego Symphony Orchestra, aided by aerial pyrotechnics, will take concertgoers on a 90-minute journey based on some of the most memorable moments from Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece, which is now the longest-running anime.

From 5pm until the venue closes (approximately 9:30pm), attendees are invited to enjoy an assortment of activations that will deepen their love for One Piece! Take on the Gum-Gum Punch Challenge with Luffy, snap a photo with Nami, and tickle the ivories with Brook and his piano.

Fans of One Piece should also make it a point to stop by the Toei Animation (#3635) and Crunchyroll (#4135) booths on the show floor for exclusive programming and merchandise. It also sounds like they’ll have a mock pirate ship set up!

This year’s Crunchyroll Concert Series is free for all SDCC badge holders, with limited, first-come first-served seating. Both events will be held in the Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, behind the convention center. Both concerts start at 7pm, with doors opening at 5pm. The official line forms at 4pm.
