    If I was in the midwest still I would be there.





    Are you also going to release a CD of the live tracks?

    I've been to almost every FF concert they've had here in Chicago, only missed out one one of them... or technically two since they had them back to back once with different line ups XD.


    Anyway, really excited to see Chicago getting a cool exclusive cocnert like this (we get spoiled a lot. I blame Arnie). Not sure if i'll go VIP since I managed to go to the special event in Chicago a few months back and got a lot of stuff signed then... but i'll definitely be buying my tickets as soon as they go on sale. Sounds like a lot of fun!

    How much have the VIP packages cost in the past? I've been listening to the music since I was a kid, so I think it'd be really great to get my FFVI Piano Collections hardcover book signed and meet them.

    I just checked with ticketmaster.com and the VIP ticket is roughly 180 after processing and fees. I can't wait. It's gonna be one of the best concerts ever, and all the more since it's a one time only set.

    Woke up bright and early and got my tickets. Almost front row and VIP. I'm really excited and hoping we get some killer performances.

    I also got my VIP ticket as well. This will be my first Distant World concert. I missed the one that was in Atlanta.

    If anyone has already attended one of the distant world concerts in the past and remembers what some of the merchandise prices were that would be really good to know... I personally hope they have the Square-Enix Polos like they are wearing now at all the cons. I could probably get away with wearing them at work.

    I've never been to a final fantasy concert. There been a few times when they were in houston but either i had no way of getting there or i was broke


    this really sucks.

    i'm coming all the way from Western Canada for this one, it'll be my first Distant Worlds Concert. Very much looking forward to it.

    I'm not going to this performance, but can we just talk about how incredible it is that they're going to be performing "Dark World" from FFVI? Of all the songs, that's a huge surprise. Crossing my fingers it goes over well and they perform it for the 25th Anniversary show in Chicago.

    Nope I am an introvert/ semi-misanthrop. Bottom line I don't like to go out anywhere with peoples. XD Especially if it involves verbal communication. * Shudders*. Still, that concert sounded interesting and I'm almost partially sad that I didn't go...partially. Did you like it?

    Where do we download our pre-show pictures from? The handout said to go to Facebook.com/FINALFANTASY, but it only directs me to my news feed/homepage when I attempt to access it.

    We've put them up on facebook.com/squareenix
