Final Fantasy VII Concert Will Tell The Game's Story Via Music
If I lived in Japan, I'd be going.
According to a Siliconera report, Square Enix will host a Final Fantasy VII concert in Tokyo this summer. The venue: Suntory Hall in the city's Akasaka district.
The exact date is June 21, and it'll be the first of the Game Symphony Japan concert series. Well, that makes sense; may as well lead with arguably the most popular Japanese video game in history, right? Nobuo Uematsu will serve as the executive music adviser for this concert tour, and the FFVII performance will be conducted by Kenichi Shimura. It should be a star-studded night for avid fans of the franchise, that's for sure!
The idea is to recreate the epic game's narrative through music, which sounds awesome. Ticket prices range from 6,500 yen to 10,000 yen ($64 - $98) and I say it'd be worth every penny. Maybe if they sell out, it'll be more evidence that a FFVII remake would work.
