Ichiro Otobe, president and COO of Square Enix, Inc., announced that, "The first Final Fantasy concert in the U.S. brought fans from far and wide together in Los Angeles to share in an unforgettable musical experience. We are pleased to announce that, due to the overwhelmingly positive response, a North American tour will soon bring the emotionally moving and powerful scores to fans across the country."

The concert will be produced by Uematsu and conducted by Arnie Roth, the Grammy-award winning music director of the Chicagoland Pops.

You can obtain tickets, including the VIP tickets, by visiting the box office, by credit card at (312)-559-1212, or on the internet at Ticketmaster.com. The original Dear Friends concert sold out in nearly three days, so ticket space may be limited.
