SQUARE ENIX Announces Distant Worlds To Perform Official 25th Anniversary Concert in North America

Final Fantasy has been an integral part of the Nintendo catalog for many years.  As the sequels were released, we were introduced to vast worlds, heart touching story lines, believable characters, and soul tickling compositions.  If you browse a Final Fantasy Fan’s collection, you are sure to find the OST’s from the games.  Even I have a station on Pandora dedicated to Final Fantasy, and many tributes on Spotify.

As part of the 25th anniversary of the Final fantasy Series, Square Enix has released an announcement, today, that the Distant World’s Anniversary concert will be coming to North America!  It appears as though this is a one night only event, but I hope that the popularity of the concert urges them to travel.  If you would like to attend the Distant World’s concert, feel free to view the details below!

This December 7th, the Chicagoland Pops Orchestra and Chorus, conducted by GRAMMY Award-winning conductor, Arnie Roth, will perform the official 25th Anniversary Concert of FINAL FANTASY at Akoo Theatre (formerly the Rosemont Theatre).
