London, UK – The first leg of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Orchestra World Tour officially kicks off this September 19 in the Royal Albert Hall in London. For those who are still in a high from playing Final Fantasy VII Remake Integrade, what better way to relive all the experience than by immersing yourself in the sights and sounds of the game.
Unlike Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy, which hand-picked all the best tracks from various Final Fantasy games, this event is solely dedicated to Final Fantasy VII Remake (and possibly Intergrade as well). So you can expect iconic tracks like One-Winged Angel and Aerith’s Theme, just to scratch the surface.
Here’s what to expect, coming from their lengthy trailer:

Just like the previous events, The Final Fantasy VII Remake Orchestra World Tour will be helmed by none other Arnie Roth. I had the pleasure of attending one of his performances way back in 2016 for the Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy in Singapore (when Final Fantasy XV was still hot at that time) and I would have to say, this is one of the most ear-gasmic and tear-inducing sets I have ever experienced. Hearing about Arnie Roth conducting in a theater again made me know that the production is in good hands.

Just like in 2016, we will be covering this event and share our experiences as we go on the tour’s first stop in London. When things get better, hopefully they visit other parts in SEA as well. I’m pretty sure a lot of fans would love to attend.
So if you are looking for the perfect way to immerse yourself or just be nostalgic in everything Final Fantasy VII, this concert in a sure-fire way to get all the feels, back to a time when you first picked up the controller and marveled at this masterpiece.
I guess its time to shout “SE-PHI-ROTH!” again.
