Mortal Kombat Live Tour logo

Mortal Kombat: Live Tour was a martial art theatrical stage show featuring Mortal Kombat characters, sound, and laser light effects on stage. The plot was based on three fighters rescuing their friends and retrieving a magic amulet from the master of Outworld, Shao Kahn in order to save the earth.

Show summary

The show debuted at Radio City Music Hall in New York on September 14, 1995, followed by a 200 city road trip into 1996. The show replicated Mortal Kombat martial arts and video game moves on stage mixed with dancing and music. Lines were pre-recorded and used to demonstrate the official MK sound effects, though there was no dismemberment, decapitation, or Fatalities visible in the show. The audience participated by yelling "Run!" or "Kick him!" as part of the live action. thumb|250px|right|Mortal Kombat: Live Tour promo

  • Hakim Alston (Jax) played an Outworld warrior who was defeated by Liu Kang (Robin Shou) in the original MK movie a year earlier.
  • Fight Coordinator Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa also appeared in the movie as Shang Tsung.
  • the lasers were produced by Laser Fantasy International of Seattle and operated by Dave Haskell and Chris Thornberry. A medium frame Spectra Physics and a 40 watt laser scope were used along with a custom fiber system for these effects.
