FINAL FANTASY XIV Music Comes to Life in New Concert Tour

Final Fantasy fans dismayed about not being able to attend the Eorzean Symphony’s Final Fantasy XIV concert because it was only taking place in Japan can rejoice: the event is coming to the United States for the first time in June. The Eorzean Symphony concert will premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on June 15-16, 2018. These beautiful performances are in store for attendees:

The two-night event will feature a 100 piece orchestra and a full choir; they’ll perform with full HD video excerpts of the game playing on screens around them. If this wasn’t enough, Naoki Yoshida (Final Fantasy XIV producer and director) and Masayoshi Soken (sound director and composer) will also be on hand. This has been a long time coming for U.S. based fans of the game who have yearned to have this concert experience.

Watch the official announcement from the producers:

So, there’s the full orchestra. There’s the choir. There are the director and composer of the game. Could there possibly be more? We are glad we hypothetically asked to set up the obvious answer of yes. Original vocal artist Susan Calloway will be singing renditions of the songs “Answers” and “Dragonsong.”

While the Eorzean Symphony will start the summer here in the U.S., the tour will end across the pond, as the symphony will be doing another two-night concert event in Dortmund, Germany on August 24-25. Playing Final Fantasy is a worldwide phenomenon; enjoying its beautiful music in a live setting should be one too.

If you are planning on attending this first-time-ever event, you can purchase tickets from Ticketmaster.

Will you be making a pilgrimage to Los Angeles for what should be an amazing performance? What is your all-time favorite video game theme? Let me know on Twitter @donnielederer or sound off in the comments below.
