It was just announced that KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World Tour- Encore! The official KINGDOM HEARTS video game concert series kicks off starting June of 2018. As many of you know, last year was the first time that the music from the KINGDOM HEARTS series was heard live in concert with the 15th Anniversary of KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World Tour- and now the concert series is heading back on the road for a second time. More cities are added to the tour dates this time around and the concert is being produced under the supervision of series creator Tetsuya Nomura, with the music program being supervised by the original composer for KINGDOM HEARTS Yoko Shimomura.

It looks like tickets range from $50-180 with pre-sale tickets already being sold. Tickets will become available to the general public starting on March 13, 10:00am EDT. Sadly, there are only a few cities this time around offering VIP passes to meet and greet composer Yoko Shimomura but if you happen to be in one of those cities and are a fan of KINGDOM HEARTS, I'd move quickly to reserve tickets. I remember last year the VIP tickets sold out in a day near us, so act fast. There will also be a Special-Edition CD available with twelve pieces from the concert, as well as other merchandise.
