Sonic Boom 2013 took place in St Louis, Missouri on August 10th and saw Sonic fans gather at The Pageant for a day of Sonic-themed fun which included appearances by Crush 40, Takashi Iizuka and Kazuyuki Hoshino. You can see a short recap video of the day’s events below:
So another Summer of Sonic comes to a close. The annual Sonic convention created by fans and run by fans was hit with a major stroke of bad luck when the original venue suffered from a power-cut which led to an electrical fire. Luckily, an alternative venue was acquired just in the nick of time and the convention was moved from the Hove Centre to the Brighton Centre in just 3 hours.
Despite the set-back, this year’s Summer of Sonic turned into one of the best and everyone who staffed it did an amazing job. Hopefully, all our attendees had a fantastic time!
Here’s some footage we managed to shoot while we weren’t busy elsewhere; enjoy!
Everyone’s favourite rock duo Crush 40 is returning to the Summer of Sonic convention on the 7th of July at the Hove Centre in Brighton. This will be Jun Senoue and Johnny Gioeli’s second appearance at the convention and their first together since 2010.
Crush 40 have been working on a new EP featuring all original material which should hopefully be showcased at this year’s Summer of Sonic.
Crush 40 recently performed 2 nights of live Sonic music with a full band (instead of the usual Jun and Johnny) in Tokyo. The shows looked utterly spectacular and Jun has gone out of his way to upload some footage from both nights.
Below is Live and Learn from the first night:
And here is What I’m Made Of from the second night:
