Final Fantasy 30 Year Anniversary Live Symphonic Event Announced!

The Australian premiere of Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY is finally returning Down Under!

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY, SQUARE ENIX, AWR Music and MJR Presents have launched this concert event featuring Japanese video game composer Nobuo Uematsu in attendance and a full symphony orchestra conducted by Grammy award-winner Arnie Roth.

This multimedia experience combines stirring screen images to match the soaring emotions of SQUARE ENIX’s world-renowned FINAL FANTASY video game series.

With the first FINAL FANTASY concert premiering in 2002 in Japan, the concept has toured the world, with this new 30th anniversary production including music from throughout the 30 years of FINAL FANTASY games as well as new scores and arrangements created specifically for these concerts.

Video game music has grown increasingly popular in the last few years, playing an integral role in the immersive experience of today’s games. The FINAL FANTASY soundtracks, which are original compositions, have grown so popular that TIME magazine named series composer Nobuo Uematsu a notable “Innovator” in its recent “Time 100: the Next Wave Music” feature. SQUARE ENIX hopes to pioneer awareness and appreciation of not only its own musical creations, but also video game music throughout the industry.
