That’s right – all of those monsters you’ve tried to catch through various video and card games are now technically old enough to rent a car (the ones with opposable thumbs and feet, anyway).
To celebrate this important anniversary (and possibly also to ease the pain of the fast passing time), the folks at “Pokémon” are throwing an entire year of music celebrations for fans, along with some exciting and brand new announcements. shenanigans. And to start things is none other than Post Malone.
On Saturday, February 27, Post Malone will perform in a virtual concert for “Pokémon” fans around the world starting at 7:00 p.m. EST. The Texan-bred star has already given audiences a taste of what’s to come for this performance by releasing a cover of “Only Wanna Be with You” by Hootie & the Blowfish ahead of the event.
“We’re kicking off our one-year ‘P25 Music’ program with a virtual concert that only ‘Pokémon’ and Post Malone could bring you,” says the official website of the event. “This big online party is an exciting opportunity to bring together Pokémon and music fans from around the world. It will be a wild celebration of 25 years of “Pokémon”, with a lot of unexpected surprises in store. “
