After Final Fantasy VII Remake finally hits on April 10, Square Enix will take its music across the globe.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake Orchestra World Tour was announced Monday, giving fans the chance to experience a live performance of the game’s new and redone music.

Presented by AWR Music Productions, the tour will bring together an orchestra and chorus of more than 100 musicians to perform all new symphonic arrangements, including the game’s theme song “Hollow,” which was composed by Nobuo Uematsu and was revealed in the latest trailer.

The performance will also be accompanied by game footage and new scenes created just for the concert by Square Enix.

The orchestra will be led by Grammy Award-winning conductor Arnie Roth, with the tour kicking off at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on June 14 (tickets go on sale Feb. 21). It will then travel across the world, making U.S. stops in Fort Worth, Texas (Aug. 22), Phoenix, Ariz. (Sept. 25), New York City (Oct. 3), Chicago, Ill. (Oct. 24), and Denver, Col. (Jan. 8 and 9).

This isn’t the first time Square Enix has organized live performances of Remake’s music. The publisher held a concert the night before their E3 press conference back in June — dubbed “A Symphonic Reunion” — and used the event to announce the highly-anticipated game’s original release date of March 3, 2020.

This isn’t AWR’s first time partnering with Square either. Its worked with the publisher on a Final Fantasy production in the past, and more recently, the NieR: Orchestra Concert. AWR has also done orchestrated performances of the music from Dragon Ball and Undertale.

There isn’t much longer to the wait for Final Fantasy VII Remake, and with a demo still out there, there’s probably more to be announced before the game releases on April 10.
