Coverage: Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - in London

Today is March 24th 2017, meaning the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - is taking place in the Central Hall Westminster in London! Welcome to KH13's coverage for the concert, which will include music from all titles throughout the series, and will serve as a 15th anniversary celebration since the first game, Kingdom Hearts, was released.

Some of the KH13 team members (including Andrew Hankinson and Fàtima Kàiyum) will be attending; they have planned a KH13 meet-up in London for you to come visit and/or attend the concert with us! We'll be collecting fan messages in a special "Thank You" booklet for Yoko Shimomura, as well as distributing exclusive KH13 stickers! 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 concerts in Japan and Paris, 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. 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!

Nice I wasn't vip but I still got a nice picture with the posters from 1.5/2.5.

Organization XIII was also played or not in London?

Thanks for keeping us up to date on things, Neil! :D

 

Wow, so a lot of you members got to meet each other before the concert, huh? That must've been a wonderful experience! I truly hope from the bottom of my heart that you all had a great and amazing and wonderful meet-up, and I hope you all enjoyed the concert together! Getting to experience Shimomura's masterful work must have been surreal! :D

Yes it was, I just forgot about it lol

Wow, I hope someone has footage of those new songs they performed up there, I'd love to hear Lazy Afternoons/At Dusk I'll Think of You. <3

Hi everyone! First time poster here. I've been a fan of Kingdom Hearts since the very beginning way back in 2002, but just wanted to say how last nights concert completely blew my expectations away.  

 

It was honestly one of the greatest experiences of my life and being able to see Hikari, Passion, Destati and Fate of the Unknown orchestrated by the London Philharmonic orchestra was something special. I loved how KH1 was given love and attention in the first half with treasured memories being orchestrated and all the video footage. It took me back to when i was 10 years old playing KH1 on the PS2 and i was grinning from ear to ear for the whole performance. They even played tracks i never expected and it was great to see Yoko Shimomura given the love and appreciation she deserves. 

 

Last night felt a culmination of the past 15 years and i'll continue to follow Kingdom Hearts well into the future!
