JMP Productions announced today that Nintendo’s famous video game
composer Koji Kondo is going to attend the world-premiere of PLAY! A
Video Game Symphony on May 27, 2006, in Chicago at the Rosemont
Theatre. His attendance includes some exciting surprises for his fans
to be revealed at a later time. Nobuo Uematsu’s music from Blue Dragon will be performed exclusively for the
first time at PLAY!’s premiere in Chicago on Saturday, May 27, 2006. The
video game is designed by Final Fantasy series originator Hironobu Sakaguchi.
The presentation of Blue Dragon at the concert will include never seen before
visuals from the highly-anticipated Xbox 360 title. PLAY! A Video Game Symphony
is a symphony concert world-tour featuring music from a catalogue of blockbuster
video game titles.

Koji Kondo is one of the most highly-acclaimed video game music
composers in the world. His songs are certainly memorable; the SUPER
MARIO BROS. theme song is still a mainstream icon 20 years after it was
written and about as recognized as a 1980’s pop song. Kondo’s music has
been cited as being as integral to the Nintendo style as the game
design of Shigeru Miyamoto.

Blue Dragon is an RPG developed by veterans of the video game industry, bringing
together Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi with Dragon Ball creator Akira
Toriyama providing character designs, and Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu
contributing the soundtrack.

Says Jason Michael Paul: “We are pulling
out all the stops for this once in a lifetime event at the PLAY! premiere. Come
be a part of what promises to be a show of many firsts in the US and worldwide
for that matter. I am just truly grateful to have the opportunity to give a
sneak peek to one of the most anticipated video games that the world has ever
seen. The inclusion of Blue Dragon into the program only further legitimizes
this concert as being the marquee event of the year.”.

All tickets for
the world-premiere of PLAY! including the VIP meet and greet are available at
the box office, Ticketmaster locations, on the
internet at www.ticketmaster.com/artist/1009980.
Video game composers
Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Mitsuda, Koji Kondo, Jeremy Soule, Akira Yamaoka, Yuzo
Koshiro, Jason Hayes and Marty O’Donnell will attend the VIP meet and greet in
Chicago.
