Tickets for the US Sonic the Hedgehog convention,Sonic Boom, will go on sale next Monday, 19th of March. Unlike last year’s application process, the tickets will be be distributed through Ticketmaster, from which entry can be purchased for the cost of $15 + a $5 fee ($20 in total).
The fee has been introduced this year in order to insure that those aquiring tickets are more likely attend the event (with some last year claiming tickets they had no itention to use). Included in the ticket price are two complimentary drinks along with food at the event itself, saving you from having to bring money along for consumables.
Already confirmed for the event is a performance from Crush 40, accompanied by Alex and Jean-Paul Makhlouf of Cash Cash…that alone should make it worth it for the ticket price!
It is also confirmed that you do not need a SDCC pass to attend the event.
More details on the event, taking place on Friday the 13th of July, 2012 (5:00 PM – 10:00 PM) at the House of Blues in San Diego, are available on the SEGA Blog.
