Legendary Nobuo Uematsu to perform live in Singapore for the first time!
If Final Fantasy is known for anything, it is its epic stories accompanied by poignant and beautiful soundtracks. The games within the Final Fantasy series were fun and exciting, but for many people, myself included, it was the music that drew players into its worlds. And the man behind some of the most popular and chilling music will be coming to perform personally.
That’s right Nobuo Uematsu, a name that should be familiar for any Final Fantasy fans worth their salt will be performing live in Singapore with the Earthbound Papas September 1st.
This concert will be the first time that Nobuo-San will be performing in-person live in Singapore. As the composer for some of the most beautiful Final Fantasy musical scores within the series, we will often hear his work but rarely do we get a chance to see Nobuo Uematsu himself perform his pieces in front of an audience.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Nobuo-San, he is an esteemed Japanese video game composer. Some of his notable works are “Eyes on me,” the theme song for Final Fantasy VIII. “One Winged Angel,” the iconic boss music with Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII as well as “Melodies of Life” from Final Fantasy IX and many many more. If you have played a Final Fantasy game, you would have heard some of Nobuo-San’s pieces.
Performing with Nobuo Uematsu will be his band, the Earthbound Papas. The Earthbound Papas comprises of many notable musicians and composers who have produced and composed for many other popular video games. Joining the Earthbound Papas as their vocalist will be Akiko Kawano to help bring to life songs like “Eyes on me” and the mobile game, Terra Battle‘s theme song “High Sky.”
Tickets for Nobuo Uematsu and the Earthbound Papas are available on Sistic.
