Kingdom Hearts Orchestra Performance Comes To Australia For The First Time

Aussie Kingdom Hearts fans are in for a treat, provided they live in or can commute to Sydney this month. On October 19, the KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World of Tres- program will be performed at Sydney Town Hall, the first performance of its kind in Australia.

Produced by series creator Tetsuya Nomura and featuring music composed by Yoko ShimomuraTakeharu Ishimoto and Tsuyoshi Sekito, the concert promises to take Kingdom Hearts fans on a journey spanning the entire franchise, with the second half dedicated solely to this year’s Kingdom Hearts III.

Most excitingly, World of Tres will feature orchestral versions of the new singles “Face My Fears” and “Don’t Think Twice”, and renewed arrangements of “Dearly Beloved” and “Simple and Clean”. You can check out an orchestral version of Simple and Clean right here, which I’ve been told (and can confirm) absolutely slaps.

The show is expected to be so big they’ve got two sessions going on the day, and you can grab tickets to either of this on MoshTix.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
