The concert became even more of a magical experience as world famous illusionist Rob Lake will also be performing. With light, sound, laser displays and magic, this event seems to be a feast for the senses. So, if you’re in Europe from October, why not take a look to see if the concert is heading to a venue near you?
The Magical Music of Harry Potter – Live in Concert certainly sounds like a long tour. Rankin said in his Twitter announcement that the tour will be “on sites all over Europe over the next month.“ The concert will begin touring Europe in October, with stops in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and Finland, and will arrive in the UK in December. The tour then returns to Europe and revisits the UK again from April 2022.
