Anaheim was luckily enough to get the first stop of the American tour of Batman Live. The amazing stage show depicting Batman and Robin with a huge cast of his villains hits the Staples Center Sep 27-30. As you can tell from these hi-res photos the set design and costumes looks fantastic. Trouncing the Spider-Man musical into the dust is the all inspiring spectacle of Batman Live. The Batmobile is even going to appear on stage. With the Paley Center showing Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 Panel, a few days before the stage show the whole week is going to be bat-saturated. It wouldn't surprise me if Bruce Timm and the whole Warner Bros Animation staff didn't head out to this show.
This is probably the best show or even in September and you better not miss, because it came all the way from England who know when it will return you have 4 days.
Prices vary, but you can get some decent seats for the price of a new video game all charges added up. You can get a deal when you buy 4 tickets.
So I've gotten some Batman Live facts below for some extra info and trivia to get you salivating over the show.
