Final Fantasy XIV Eorzean Symphony

FINAL FANTASY XIV Symphonic Concert travels to the US for its first overseas performance at The Walk of Fame’s Dolby Theatre this month. Touring worldwide is the Eorzean Symphony, which features a full orchestra, a choir and famous soloists. Backdrops will include clips from the game projected in tandem with the orchestra, producing an immersive experience.

Each performance will present an all-star guest lineup, with names such as Masayoshi Soken (Sound Director and Composer) and Naoki Yoshida (Producer and Director). They will also be joined by vocal artist Susan Calloway singing the fan favorite songs such as “Answers.”

The concert won’t be the only event for guests; cosplayers will participate in the very first FINAL FANTASY XIV Hollywood Red Carpet Cosplay Walk prior to the June 16 performance. While everyone is welcome to watch this historic event, those seeking to be a part of the Hollywood Red Carpet Cosplay Walk must possess a FINAL FANTASY XIV Orchestra Concert 2018 -Eorzean Symphony- concert ticket for either the June 15 or 16 performances.
