Javits Convention Center in celebration of My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission releasing in theaters October 29th.

ABOUT THE CONCERT

Get ready to experience My Hero Academia like never before in an electrifying live concert featuring music from the first five seasons of the series to relive all of its most iconic moments.

The My Hero Academia Official Live Concert will be a high-energy event featuring a rock band with epic orchestral elements, performing all-new arrangements of the My Hero Academia soundtracks written by Yuki Hayashi himself, while above the band a giant screen plays synchronized HD video from the anime.

The setlist will feature My Hero Academia classic themes including “You Say Run,” “Watashi ga kita!!” (ALL MIGHT’s theme), “Trinity,” “Hero A,” and many more!

From the origins of Deku to the adventures of the U.A. students, from their dramatic battles against the League of Villains to the U.A. High School Festival, this concert will give the My Hero Academia community their ultimate fan experience.

The concert is produced by soundtrec and represented by SOHO Live, who have collaborated previously on Capcom Live: The Capcom Official Concert Tour, The Devil Awakens: The Official Devil May Cry Concert, The Rising of the Shield Hero Official Live Concert, and the Video Game Orchestra.

ABOUT THE COMPOSER

YUKI HAYASHI WILL INTRODUCE THE CONCERT LIVE AND IN-PERSON!

Yuki Hayashi has composed the music to My Hero Academia and as additional popular anime including Haikyu!!, Gundam Build Fighters, Death Parade, Kiznaiver, Welcome to the Ballroom, and more. He was born in Kyoto in 1980. Being an active member in a men’s rhythmic gymnastics team in his early years spawned his interest in BGM while selecting songs to complement performances. This led him to begin teaching himself music composition while at university, despite not having a background in music itself. After graduating, Yuki acquired the basics of track making under house techno DJ and sound-maker Hideo Kobayashi and started producing his first range of music accompaniments for dance sports. His experience as a rhythmic gymnast has enabled Yuki to intuitively incorporate an eclectic range of music and produce a unique sound, empowering scenes from TV drama, animation, and film.
