Coverage: Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - in Los Angeles, California


Aquaberry

A big day awaits today as the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - kicks off in North America! It will be premiering at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, at 8pm PDT today, followed by four more shows across the country.

 

Welcome to KH13.com's live coverage of the LA concerts!

 

After our successful presence at the KHO concert in London, UK, we have decided to host another #KH13MeetUp! Staff member Raxaimus will be in attendance and hosting today's meet-up as well as tomorrow's, both of which will be taking place in the two hours before each concert. We'll be collecting fan messages in a special "Thank You" booklet for series composer Yoko Shimomura, as well as distributing exclusive KH13 stickers! The meet-up will take place near the main entrance and in the foyer of the Dolby Theatre, so that even fans without concert tickets will be able to attend!

 

You can RSVP to the event and get updates on our #KH13MeetUp on our Facebook event page.

 

There were quite a few reveals for the previous concerts, such as Union χ[Cross]'s reveal and the exclusive canon backstory from Kingdom Hearts III with Kairi and Xion's Japanese voice actress, Risa Uchida, and Aqua's Japanese voice actress, Megumi Toyoguchi. Series director Tetsuya Nomura also stated that there is a possibility for new information regarding Kingdom Hearts III to be displayed at one of the concerts taking place this year.

 

Stay tuned to KH13.com for full live coverage of the event and don't forget to also stay tuned to our social media accounts for instant live updates!

Thanks for keeping us up to date on this, Aquaberry, it means a lot for those of us who aren't able to make it to the concerts! Here's hoping that all the people that do get to go enjoy themselves as much as possible, and give Ms. Yoko all the positive vibes and love from all of us! :D

 

Also, here's fingers crossed that there'll be Kingdom Hearts III info at one of these upcoming concerts, cuz I'm dying of anticipation here! xD

I wonder if Tetsuya Nomura is going to be there because he did say that he's going to be in the United States so isn't it possible for him to make a surprise appearance there?

Thank you, but I'm doing the least of the work! Leamax, Jake, and Dengojin have been doing the heavy lifting so far! x
