Final Fantasy tribute concert returns to London this September

New, 6 comments

The critically acclaimed Final Symphony Tour, a concert which celebrates the music of Final Fantasy, is returning to London, U.K. on Sept. 12, composer Nobuo Uematsu confirmed in a video released by Merregnon Studios today.

"Final Symphony 2" will include a new program of music featuring arrangements from Final Fantasy 5, Final Fantasy 8 and Final Fantasy 9 as performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. A new suite of music from Final Fantasy 13 will be arranged by its original composer Masashi Hamauzu.

Uematsu will also be at the show for a pre-concert talk where he'll discuss and career and answer questions.

"It's wonderful that we're able to return to the Barbican with such an exciting new programme of music," said tour producer, Thomas Böcker. "Performing the original Final Symphony with the LSO back in 2013 was a musical dream come true, and recording the album at Abbey Road Studios was the icing on the cake. The arrangers, Roger Wanamo and Jonne Valtonen - plus Masashi Hamauzu - have been working very hard on something extremely special and we think it's exactly what fans of Final Fantasy have been waiting for!"

Tickets go on sale starting March 20, priced between £30 and £65.
