Following a sold out show last year Distant Worlds: music from Final Fantasy have announced they are to return to London at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 2nd November. This concert will have extra meaning as it will be part of the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy celebrations. A fact that was mentioned during the concert in London this past November.
“We are excited to announce the return of Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY to London’s historic Royal Albert Hall on November 2, 2012.
This concert celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the release of Final Fantasy with a special program full of new additions to the Distant Worlds repertoire and other surprises.
The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra again performs under the direction of Maestro Arnie Roth with composer Nobuo Uematsu in attendance.”
Tickets go on sale on March 15th with prices ranging from £25 all the way up to £125. As was the case last time the top tier price bracket will be a special VIP ticket that will include lots of extras. Here’s what the £125 ticket will get you –
“Exclusive post show VIP meet/greet. There will be a limited capacity meet and greet reception held at the Royal Albert Hall after the show. Meet composer Nobuo Uematsu and conductor Arnie Roth after the FINAL FANTASY concert in an exclusive signing event! Special meet and greet tickets (£125 per person) include:

We will post the ticket link once it becomes available. We can promise you – having attended their concert last year – that if you are a Final Fantasy fan it was a wonderful experience and we are all so happy we attended. To hear the music with an orchestra in front of you while watching scenes from the games (where the music appears) at the same time on big screens, it gives new appreciation for the music that you have potentially listened to for hours on end while playing the games.
