Two years after its premiere and after winning the 2018 Academy Award for best animated feature film, Coco is getting its first-ever live concert treatment.
The heartwarming Disney and Pixar movie will be brought to life on stage in a two-day event taking place from Friday, Nov. 8 to Saturday, Nov. 9 at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Hosted by Eva Longoria and Benjamin Bratt (who portrays Ernesto de la Cruz), special guests include Carlos Rivera, Natalia Jimenez, Miguel, Lele Pons, Rudy Mancuso, Mariachi Divas, and a live orchestra led by Conductor Sarah Hicks, to name a few. The Coco cast is also confirmed to make appearances, such as Alanna Ubach (Mama Imelda), Jaime Camil (Papa), and Alex Gonzalez, who portrays the lead role of Miguel.
“Coco is my heart, it means everything to me. It’s ancestors, family, music, love, culture, traditions, dreams, and passion. Coco is everything that inspires, connects, and makes the world a better place. It’s a unique film,” Gonzalez said in a press statement. “The Hollywood Bowl is a very special place where we can celebrate and share our love and appreciation for music and Coco! It’s a huge honor and privilege to be a part of this beautiful performance at the Hollywood Bowl. I am so excited, can’t wait!”
Produced by Disney Concerts and Live Nation/Andrew Hewitt & Bill Silva Presents, Coco Live in Concert will transform the venue into the Land of the Dead with special pre-show activities. Day of the Dead costumes are encouraged.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning noon PT on Friday, Sept. 13 via Ticketmaster.com.
