Listen up, Final Fantasy fans… the long wait has finally paid off. Square Enix’s musical masterpiece is coming in August of 2022 with FINAL FANTASY 35th Anniversary Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY Coral. Launched in conjunction with Final Fantasy’s 35th anniversary, this incredible concert features some of the best musical scores from various Final Fantasy games, all composed by the wonderful Nobuo Uematsu. With Grammy Award-winning conductor Arnie Roth standing at the helm of this performance, Distant Worlds will be an event you certainly will never forget.
For those who have never been to a Distant Worlds concert in previous years, here is what you can expect walking into whichever symphony hall you’ve picked out for your experience.
