    Ah excellent, my brother is going to get my a signed *something*. Trying to find out what CD's the have on offer. Be nice to have a distant worlds or an official FF OST.

    I can only assume he is in the orchestra.

    Mageme, keep an eye out for Michael Whight in the programme. He'll be there blowing on a clarinet.

    So I went to the Saturday afternoon performance, it was indeed intimate as the concert name stated. The performances felt quite informal, to the point you could hear the banter between Arnie and the musicians. Of particular comedy, was where Arnie himself felt he hadn't played the end section of FFXIII's Blinded by Light well, so he decided to replay it.

    I felt, because of the small ensemble, the music did have a certain high school band quality to it (no offence to Widge's brother!!!!) but certain pieces elevated it above that level. The opening with OWA and ending with VIII's Force Your Way were both high points. The concert was peppered with notable pieces from the series. Admittedly, I'm not a big fan of the chocobo theme but the ukulele version they played was fun. So overall, it was a nice deviation from the big performances but not a massive deal if you missed out on tickets this time.

    Anyway, will share some photos soon! There are already videos up on youtube so I won't embarrass myself by uploading the poor quality of mine.

    They implied that there would be future dates and perchance another DW concert, so will keep folks updated!

    @Steve_Perry Don't need to wait long, they've just literally announced a London concert! 1st November 2014 is the date at the Royal Albert Hall.

    And done!

    I got into the queue at 10:01 and by the time I got through, I couldn't get tickets in the Circle :o

    I'll be in the stalls this time :)

    I actually got seats in the stalls this time. In 2012 I was in the circle. Should be a good view.

    There are some cheapo restricted/no screen view tickets if anyone's desperate to get into the London concert in November. Just check out the Royal Albert Hall website.

    Don't forget there is a separate New World concert on the 31st October, the night before the main RAH concert.

    Tickets go on sale at 10 this morning but you have to be quick! It was sold out in about half an hour last time. Unfortunately I have a meeting at work so can't join in the ticket buying fracas.

    The page is down at the moment, so either they're updating it to be able to book tickets or the fans are swamping the site. (Alternatively just call the box office 020 7222 1061).

    Fucking London. Everything is in fucking London. I would love to go but it would cost me an arm and a leg.

    Just got back from my meeting and surprisingly there are still lots of tickets for the New World concert, including VIP meet and greet tickets.

    I guess this is being eclipsed by the main RAH concert the next evening and folks not wanting to fork out for two concerts in a row. Still, if you want to meet and greet...

    Yeah, I don't think I can afford it, sadly. Bad timing.

    Still, if tickets remain available for a few days, I could see me being silly...
