Square Enix will hold a Final Fantasy VII symphony concert in Tokyo this Summer, reports 4Gamer (via: RocketNews). The performance will take place on June 21st and will be the first of the Game Symphony Japan concert series.

 

Nobuo Uematsu, who serves as a executive music advisor for the concert tour will be at the performance, which will be conducted by Kenichi Shimura. It will take place at the Suntory Hall in Tokyo’s Akasaka district.

 

The intent of the Final Fantasy VII performance is to recreate the game’s narrative through the music that will be performed at the concert. Ticket prices will range from 6,500 yen to 10,000 yen (around $64 – $98), depending on seat location.

    Wow those tickets are expensive, but I’d probably buy one of the $64 since it’s music

      I was actually thinking that was pretty cheap. But then again, pretty much everything like this is expensive in AU. :(

    At Squeenix HQ:

    “We REALLY need to make this FF VII talking stop…”
    “Yeah… Otherwise we will actually remake the damn thing and pop the bubble for those with unrealistic expectations…”

    “I KNOW! A CONCERT!”
    “OOOOH! That’ll quiet them down!”

    You guys are way late on reporting this. By the time RocketNews reported it, they were already sold out. Trust me, I know. I live in Japan. I checked the ticket web sites and even called the box office. Nothing. Seeing this mentioned again makes me sad. :(
