    Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY 2009 Tour Schedule

    Dear FINAL FANTASY Fans,
    Happy Holidays! I cannot believe a whole year has passed since our premiere of Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY in Stockholm. I am excited to announce on our one-year anniversary that we will be visiting even more cities in 2009! We have confirmed concerts all around the world, including many concerts in the USA and for the first time ever in Asia!

    Our first concert of 2009 will take place at the historic Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on April 11th. And our great friend, Nobuo Uematsu will be in attendance! A special VIP meet & greet will be available to a limited number to meet Nobuo Uematsu and myself in person after the show!

    I am happy to announce that more post concert meet & greet tickets have been made available for Grand Rapids. They are only available by phone, so call today and do not miss out on a chance to hang out after the concert with Uematsu-san and me. We will be signing autographs after the concert exclusively for fans with meet and greet tickets.

    A lot of fans have asked us when we will be visiting the east and west coasts of the U.S. and I want to thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. Your requests have been helpful in planning concerts in these regions in 2009. Today, you can buy tickets to see Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY in Seattle with the Seattle Symphony for two shows only on July 10th and 11th at 8:00pm. The Emmy award winning Seattle Symphony orchestra will be performing in Benaroya Hall - S. Mark Taper Auditorium, noted for its architectural and acoustical splendor.

    Tickets will also be on sale soon for two more USA cities: May 16th with the Baltimore Symphony in Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, a gorgeous venue known for its pristine acoustics and versatility and July 17th and 18th with the Grammy award winning San Francisco Symphony! I know everyone has been waiting for these, so keep checking ffdistantworlds.com for info about these exciting events.

    Asia tour!

    We are excited to perform Nobuo Uematsu's music of Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY on tour in Asia in 2009! In May, we will travel to Taipei and Singapore for two concerts in each city. Distant Worlds will make its Asian premiere in Taiwan at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, and in Singapore we are proud to be part of the Singapore Arts festival for two concerts on the 22nd and 23rd at 7:30pm in the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay. Tickets will be on sale in March 2009.

    Sincerely,
    Maestro Arnie Roth
    Music Director of Distant Worlds

    Was hoping to put together a trip to these guys this summer, but I don't think it's going to happen.
