Farewell for now . . .

The "Dear Friends - music from FINAL FANTASY" concert was originally conceived as a one-time event in Los Angeles, CA on May 10, 2004. The concert sold-out in 3 days and had an overwhelmingly positive reception. After the show, many fans pleaded for another chance to see the concert and thus the concert series was born.

After a successful nationwide tour in 2005, the Dear Friends concert series will be coming to a close. The remaining shows will be performed July 14 in San Diego, California during the Comic-Con International show and July 23-24 in Detroit, Michigan.

Thank you to everyone for your support of not just this concert but videogame music overall. While we donít have any news about upcoming events, be the first to know about future concerts and events by visiting our music site at to see you soon!
