After the success of the 2002 Final Fantasy live concert held in Japan, Final Fantasy series publisher and rights holder Square Enix announced a six-city tour of Japan in 2004 called “Tour de Japon: music from Final Fantasy”.

Under Music Director Arnie Roth, the 2005 U.S. concert tour “Dear Friends: Music From Final Fantasy” was the first concert production that featured the music of Final Fantasy outside Japan. This award-winning music was then featured in the “More Friends: Music From Final Fantasy” performance in Los Angeles, also in 2005 (again under Roth’s baton). In 2006, the “Voices: Music from Final Fantasy” concert took place in Yokohama, Japan. This performance featured premieres, guest soloists and Uematsu’s rock/metal band, the Black Mages, along with the Prima Vista orchestra and choir under the direction of Arnie Roth.

In 2007, “Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy” had its first performance in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then, Distant Worlds has performed regularly in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia, with more and more new repertoire and video added as the shows grow. In addition to the worldwide concert tour, there have been two acclaimed CD releases and a live concert DVD from Japan 2010 from the “Distant Worlds: Final Fantasy” concert series.
