Post Malone is to headline a virtual concert to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Pokémon. The massively popular video game has been with us for a quarter of a century on the 27th of February, first appearing on the Game Boy which is where Post says he first encountered it, “Pokémon has been a constant in my life from playing the original video games on my Game Boy, to trading Pokémon TCG cards at lunch, to the adventures of catching Pokémon on the street with Pokémon GO,”

A trailer for the concert shows the star transformed in to one of the game’s characters and he is quoted as saying, “I’ve been a  fan for a long time, so the opportunity to headline the Pokémon Day concert celebrating 25 years is awesome.”

The concert is free to view from Midnight GMT (7pm ET) on the official Pokémon You Tube Channel. Post was asked by Billboard what to expect on the night, but is giving nothing away. “They’ll just have to tune in and watch! The team put in so much work – this is one of the coolest things I’ve been a part of. There may be some surprises, too. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
