"Something's in the works." Nomura, damn you and your teasing.

 

Other than that, the people going to the concerts are so freaking lucky now.

Why, oh why would the voice actors of 2 characters that have no current way of being brought back be invited to a concert? Unless this is as much of a tease as the chi art.

And just like Ven on the Chi anniversary art, those are some random-ass choices. But because of the mention that things are "in the works," can't help but feel like them being there is somehow important.

 

Also, holy hell I hope that concert gets recorded. I wanna hear the new tracks and even the old stuff soooo badly.

Participate? Are they going to sing or something.

 

Just because things are in the works doesn't mean they are done or even close to being done lol. It's just Nomura being his vague self.

Not too surprising. The Terra/Namine relationship is one of the few romantic couples that are both supported by fans and are canon among the games. Probably a duet or something. :/

​If I had the money I would buy myself a flight over there just to pay to see... or should I say listen? Never been to a concert before T__T But I'd do anything for Kingdom Heartsu!

I'm not really certain how a relationship between Terra and Namine has been given credence in-game.

Curse you Nomura and your cryptic teases!. Seriously though I wish I could be there. I wonder if Simple and Clean or Sanctuary will be there? Maybe Utada Hikaru will make a surprise appearance?

amazing :O
guys I have 2 questions:

1) where can I buy some of this stuff that was available at the concert online?

2) Since I'll be attending Paris's KH Orchestra Concert next year, with what hashtag or something should I make my posts so they can also be published here afterwards, like live updates?

I really wish I could have went. If they ever hold a concert here in the States I don't care if I cut off all connections to everyone I know-- I'M GOING!

 

Also, will there be CDs of the music played I could buy in the near future? I'd very much like that.

Wow this looks amazing. :O I can't wait for the London's KH concert which I will be attending.

 

Me too :D

While some seem to be medleys, I'm still hoping for more tracks from BBS and 3D though. There are some I really like but I also think that tracks like Traverse Town are not that epic to listen to in comparison to Vector to the Heavens, Lord of the Castle, Hikari, L'oscurita dell'Ignoto, Ventus' Theme, Dark Impetus and so on.

Sure, it's nice to have something more relaxing in between, but I'm still hoping that some of the more well known pieces are part of it too.
