There is also an Orchestra World Tour, due to start in June, which will be performing some of the music from Final Fantasy VII Remake via a full choir and orchestra. The Tour kicks off in L.A. and moves onto London, Paris and Barcelona with more European dates being announced.
All music will also be conducted by Grammy Award winner Arnie Roth, known for his work on the Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy tours. More info on the Orchestra World Tour can be found on their website.
