Following the release of Kingdom Hearts III, the official Kingdom Hearts Orchestra is currently on tour to perform both old and new music from the franchise. During each show, “game footage on a giant screen accompanies orchestral arrangements, allowing fans to immerse themselves in the story so far.” The concert tour, titled “World of Tres”, has received positive reception and kicked off in Tokyo earlier this year.
Popular music from the Kingdom Hearts series is featured during World of Tres and re-arranged for orchestra. Some fan-favorite tracks include theme songs by Hikaru Utada and final boss music. Composers who worked on the official game soundtracks contributed directly to these arrangements for a total runtime of two hours. The first half of the show covers the Kingdom Hearts storyline leading up to Kingdom Hearts III, while the second half is entirely dedicated to the latest entry in the franchise.
Kingdom Hearts – World of Tres still has performances running through 2019, stopping in the US, Canada, France, Brazil, Australia, UK, Mexico, and Japan. Exclusive merchandise is sold at each show including a t-shirt, tote bag, key chain, poster, 48-page concert program, and set of two Orchestra Conductor Keyblades. Tickets can be purchased on a variety of vendor websites and more details can be found on the orchestra’s official Facebook page.
