Final Symphony 2 will see the London Symphony Orchestra perform themes from Final Fantasy 5, 8 and 9 on 12th September at the Barbican. The concert will also feature new music from Final Fantasy 13, arranged by original composer Masashi Hamauzu.

Legendary Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu will attend, and will take part in a ticketed, pre-concert talk to discuss his career and answer questions from the audience. There's a new interview with Uematsu in the video, below.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, 20th March, from 10am UK time, and range in price from £30 to £65. Tickets for Uematsu's pre-concert talk go on sale at the same time and cost £10 each. You can book tickets at the official concert site.

Back in February a Final Symphony album was released. The compilation includes tunes from Final Fantasy 6, 7 and 10, recorded with Uematsu at London's famous Abbey Road Studios.

The 11-track album includes an 18-minute musical tour of FF6, along with a three-movement rendition of Final Fantasy 7's themes, lasting almost 45 minutes.

Final Symphony's arrangements were composed as part of a worldwide concert tour held over the past two years.
