Coverage: Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - in New York City


Leamax

The Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - has one more stop before heading back to Japan for the final concert, and it's on the other side of the United States in the Big Apple.

 

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

 

After our successful presence at the KHO concerts in London, UK and Los Angeles, California, we are going to have one last #KH13MeetUp! Staff members Toominator and Ariel Phillips will be hosting tomorrow's meet-up. We'll be collecting fan messages in another special "Thank You" booklet for series composer Yoko Shimomura, as well as distributing exclusive KH13 stickers!

 

The meet-up will take place on Saturday, June 24th near the main entrance of the United Palace Theater at 4pm EDT, so that even fans without concert tickets will be able to attend!

 

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

 

Previously, the Los Angeles concerts saw a new Kingdom Hearts III trailer delivered by series director Tetsuya Nomura himself on stage and confirming a new world and new trailer upcoming for D23 Expo 2017 in Anaheim, California on July 15th. There has been some other reveals from previous concerts including 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.

 

Stay tuned to KH13.com for full live coverage of the event and the #KH13MeetUp and don't forget to also stay tuned to our social media accounts for instant live updates!

This is awesome Leamax, thanks for sharing this with us!

 

It's awesome to know that the concert world tour has found such success! It's well earned success, after all, and I hope that this leads to more concert world tours in the future! I hope that everyone who attends this concert enjoy every bit of it! May your hearts be your guiding key!

 

I wonder if Nomura will show up at the end to say something more before July? :O

Apparently, the New York event was so chaotic, that people couldn't hear the music because people were screaming and shouting during the compositions.

I'm glad I wasn't there to witness that. That would mess me up big time.

 

They weren't distracted when playing their pieces weren't they?

I was there on the Saturday show. It was CHAOTIC. Many of the audience were disrespectful. I was sitting in the orchestra section, and the guy beside me was screaming whenever his favorite character shows up, whistling, and tapping his foot. Had to shut him off.

 

I don't think they were distracted, but I remembered one of the flute played his/her part too fast during Vector to Heavens (long day, hot day, mistake happens, I admire that he/she could move along with the song seamlessly after the mistake).

 

I went to the Harry Potter Orchestra the other day, but this time the conductor ENCOURAGED the audience to cheer whenever they see their favorite character on screen. I was confused at first, but these audience are FAR more respectful and bearable than the KH orchestra audience.

 

All in all, Kingdom Hearts Orchestra in NY was amazing, the fandom ruined it.

Well. There are a lot of people that knows when to remain silent during musical pieces, despite there's clips showing as the orchestra was playing. And there are others that probably don't know such etiquette to follow when being in an orchestra concert. I'm glad my piano teacher taught me, my brother, and the other students proper etiquette. 

 

If they weren't distracted, that's good. I'm relieved to read that.  I know the feeling of making mistakes. You're right. Mistakes happen.

 

I'm sorry you guys didn't hear the music when they were cheering loud. And that's good you still enjoyed yourself. Glad I wasn't there to witness all of it. I had my share of problems regarding me playing in a high school's talent show, people were cheering loud, and it made things worse with me. I totally messed up with my piano piece and their cheering made me nervous.
