final_symphony_ii-artwork-pressThe Final Fantasy concert from Merregnon Studios will return to London on September 12 with an all-new programme of music.

Titled Final Symphony II and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, the concert’s musical programme takes in some of series composer Nobuo Uematsu’s most iconic themes from Final Fantasy V, VIII and IX.

In addition, the London Barbican concert will also feature a new suite of music from Final Fantasy XIII – arranged by original composer Masashi Hamauzu.

“It’s wonderful that we’re able to return to the Barbican with such an exciting new programme of music,” said Final Symphony II producer Thomas Böcker.

“Performing the original Final Symphony with the LSO back in 2013 was a musical dream come true, and recording the album at Abbey Road Studios was the icing on the cake.”

He added: “The arrangers, Roger Wanamo and Jonne Valtonen – plus Masashi Hamauzu – have been working very hard on something extremely special and we think it’s exactly what fans of Final Fantasy have been waiting for!”

Tickets for Final Symphony II go on sale tomorrow (March 20) from 10am, and range in price from £30 to £65.

Tickets for a pre-concert talk by Uematsu will also go on sale, priced at £10 each. Tickets can be booked via the official concert site.
