NieR live orchestra shows coming west

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to

Last year, the music of NieR was performed by a live orchestra to four sold-out crowds in Tokyo. The melancholic score from the series performed by a 100-piece orchestra while scenes from the games played out must have been a sight to see. Thankfully, western audiences will soon get to experience the unique and moving music for themselves with two concerts in 2020.

Coming to Chicago's Rosemont Theatre on January 24 and London's Royal Festival Hall on February 2, NieR: Orchestra Concert re: 12018 will aim to make you cry your eyes out in public. Along with the music, the event will have special guests such as Mr. Depression himself Yoko Taro, original composer Keiichi Okabe, and Emi Evans, the lyricist for the series.

Tickets for the general public will go on sale on October 10, and based on the British pricing (£37 - £67), the concert doesn't look to be overly expensive. The biggest problem for Americans is getting to Chicago in the middle of winter. As a lover of classical music and orchestral performances, I adore this trend of video game concerts bringing more people to the beauty that is live orchestra music.
