  1. I missed the one and only time they were in Toronto. So sad. But I got a chance to go see Video Game Live, another video game symphony. It was the best moment of my life when I watched One Wing Angel being performed by a live orchestra.

    1. You must have been upset that you missed that the performance in Toronto ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Well, you’ll get a chance to see some other time ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ah, Nobuo Uematsu is great isn’t it? One Wing Angel must have sounded great played by a live orchestra ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I caught them in Singapore, 2007, thanks to early bookings. Fantastic concert, they actually screened game footage while the orchestra was playing, even had a harpsichord specially for the fugal part in FF6’s Dancing Mad. They had some kooky PS1 ninja game as an encore if i’m not wrong XD
