FYI, this story is more than a year old

Thanks to great sales of the first show, there will be a second show for the Final Fantasy concert in Auckland later this year.  The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) announced in a press release date that a second Final Symphony concert takes place on Saturday October 22nd, 2016. This is due to high demand from the fans.  The Final Symphony concerts take place on October 21st and October 22nd at the Aotea Centre. The concert will have music featured in Final Fantasy VII, VIII and X.  Final Symphony Producer and Director Thomas Böcker said: “Final Symphony has built the reputation of being the finest example of what video game music has to offer today, thanks to its sophisticated arrangements,” Böcker says. “We are seeing more and more people outside the usual gaming circles coming to these concerts. Likewise, fans of FINAL FANTASY often express an interest in experiencing other forms of orchestral music after a Final Symphony concert,” he adds.  As an added bonus, concert attendees can play on the PlayStation VR headset. Tickets range from $35 to $75 and are available to purchase via Ticketmaster at ticketmaster.co.nz.
