A message from Tetsuya Nomura, the series’ director:

Until now for Japan and overseas, a concert will be held for KINGDOM HEARTS music. This time we will be able to hold the world’s first official KINGDOM HEARTS concert.

The first year will be made of a symphonic band called “First Breath”. Please come see this first memorable commemoration for the world. I think you’ll enjoy the first breath when the concert plays for KINGDOM HEARTS 2.8 and KINGDOM HEARTS III.

Also, on the go and while you’re waiting, I’m very happy KINGDOM HEARTS Unchained χ has been popularly received.

A message from Yoko Shimomura, the series’ music composer:

Finally an official concert for KINGDOM HEARTS will be held by a symphonic band!

Personally for myself in high school, I played the flute and was conducting for a symphonic band. I thought the concert band there was extraordinary. (laughs) For how I started the concert band, in a junior high school festival, I heard a symphonic band playing African Symphony. (It is a classic!) Because of this one song, it had a significant effect in continuing the symphonic band over five years.

I thought about being the person to start a symphonic band just so you could listen to a symphonic arrangement for KINGDOM HEARTS, and being the person that loves symphonic music more and more, I’m very happy.

Thinking about the days we practiced everyday, I would like you to be immersed in a new world music in KINGDOM HEARTS. By all means, everyone please come listen. See you at the venue!

A message from Tetsuya Nomura, the series’ director:

The idea of a KINGDOM HEARTS concert has been in the works for several years, but even so, I was astonished to learn that our music would be performed by a full orchestra, in other countries no less.

I’ve been given the opportunity to oversee the creation of the title, logo, and many other aspects of this amazing production, and as the director of the series, I am confident that what we’ve created will touch the hearts of our beloved fans everywhere.

The World Tour is slated for 2017, the same year as the KINGDOM HEARTS 15th anniversary. In the meantime, fans will get a chance to explore the world of KINGDOM HEARTS II.8, which is coming out later this year. I hope the excitement and joy they get from the experience will only increase their anticipation for the release of KINGDOM HEARTS III.”

A message from Yoko Shimomura, the series’ music composer:

‘Please have a KINGDOM HEARTS orchestral concert.’

I heard this quite often, and it echoed my own feelings. I’ve wanted to have a concert for some time, and I’m happy to announce that it’s finally become a reality. When I began composing for the KINGDOM HEARTS series, I couldn’t even dream this day would come. But it has, thanks to our beloved fans.

This concert and the music of KINGDOM HEARTS could not have existed without their undying support. I can’t thank them enough. The concert will encompass my feelings toward the series and those dear to me around the world. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
