Final Fantasy 25th anniversary concert in London includes private concert beforehand

Prior to the Distant Worlds concert in London for Final Fantasy's 25th anniversary, Square Enix will be holding a special members-only event — a private show so exclusive that you can only get in through a drawing on the publisher's website.

On the morning of the London concert, Square Enix will hold a limited gathering in the Elgar Room of the Royal Albert Hall. Those in attendance will be treated to an "intimate chamber performance" of Final Fantasy 6: Dark World by the composers themselves as soloists — including Nobuo Uematsu on keyboards and Arnie Roth on violin — along with members of the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. The sold-out Distant Worlds concert itself will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on the evening of Nov. 2.

Afterward, fans will be able to meet with Uematsu, Roth, and Final Fantasy 13 composer Masashi Hamauzu, as well as peruse an art gallery full of pieces commemorating the franchise's rich history.

Only 75 pairs of tickets are available, and Square Enix is conducting a drawing on its website through Oct. 22 for Square Enix members. Go put your name in the hat!
