Feb. 27 is Pokemon Day, marking 25 years since Pokemon Red and Green came out in Japan, and rapper Post Malone is headlining a virtual concert to mark the anniversary. It kicks off at 4 p.m. PT Saturday (7 p.m. ET/12 a.m. Sunday GMT/10 a.m. Sunday AEST) and is embedded above. We got a sneak preview Thursday, with Malone’s cover of Hootie and the Blowfish’s ’90s classic Only Wanna Be With You.
If YouTube isn’t your first choice of virtual concert venue, the gig will also be livestreamed on Twitch. The official Pokemon site will show the gig as well. Katy Perry will join another “P25” musical event.
