      I just got the voices concert DVD from Japan today it is fantastic I can't wait for this Distant worlds tout to come to the UK.

      (I also was impressed with the speed of delivery to the Uk from japan (5 days and thats over christmas) how well it was packaged and got a limited edition 20th Aniversary plastic sleeve with all the music CD's they sell from FF ( I will take pics later and add to this) Yes all teh extras are in japanes but it is a fantastic double DVD.)

        Has anyone gone to one of these performances? I went down to Baltimore last night and it was incredible. I giggled like a school girl when I saw the program:

        Liberi Fatali
        (not listed: 5 second rendition of the Victory Fanfare)
        To Zanarkand
        Don't Be Afraid
        Aerith's Theme
        Medley 2002
        Dear Friends
        Vamo' alla Flamenco
        Love Grows
        Ronfaure
        Main Theme (Prologue)

        Opening - Bombing Mission
        Fisherman's Horizon
        Memoro de la Stono
        The Man with the Machine Gun
        Theme of Love
        Swing de Chocobo
        Maria and Draco
        Terra's Theme

        Encore: One Winged Angel

        I think we got extremely lucky with Catherine MiEung Choi, who provided amazing vocals on Distant Worlds and the Opera. It was easily the best rendition of the FFVI Opera I've ever heard, and warranted its standing ovation. Every piece was excellent and the whole night was perfectly arranged. I would've loved to hear Clash on the Big Bridge or Dancing Mad, but at least I got Ronfaure.

        The conductor Arnie Roth announced that he and AWR Records will be involved with FFXIV along with Uematsu, but wouldn't elaborate beyond that. Perhaps he'll be conducting the larger pieces with a bona fide orchestra, or they'll be quick to release an album/go on tour.

        If you're able to go to a future performance, definitely take advantage of it. They'll be in San Francisco and Seattle in July, and hopefully other cities in the future. The performance went overtime causing me to miss my train, so I was stuck in Baltimore until 4am, but I don't regret anything. If you've been, share how your night went!

                  It certainly is one of the few reasons (along with Riverdance shows and NYC's legendary Pizzas) I'd like to get/renew a US visa. But yeah, I'll just buy the CD/DVD instead.

                    What would you need a visa for? I'm pretty sure most countries' (at least, ones where you'd have internet access and $150~ to spend on a game every year) citizens can visit the US for 30-90 days on just a passport. Cross the border, they stamp it, you go about your business.

                      I'm pretty sure Mexico is not one of those countries, and the hoops you have to jump through to go to the US to spend money aren't worth it at all for me.
