Final Fantasy Concert?
In February, the Chicagoland Pops Orchestra played a unique experimental concert with great success. They played a live symphonic rendition of music from the video game epic Final Fantasy XI, accompanying large-screen images of characters from the game. (Tribune Article)

I have recently heard that the same concert is being considered in a slightly smaller midwest city with a high-caliber symphony orchestra (the city must remain anonymous, so please don't name it if you know or can guess). I offered to ask around a bit to see what kind of appeal such a show might have.

The game has an avid following, but I'm not a part of the cult myself, having never played it. I know I've seen the game mentioned on my friends-list though, so I'm hoping to get some feedback from you fine people. Hence....a poll! Please help.

Poll #470629 Final Fantasy

Do you play Final Fantasy?

Now and then

Does the idea of hearing the music played by a live professional orchestra, complete with video screens with scenes from the game, sound cool?

Oh yeah, that would be really neat!
Sure, it sounds interesting
Not really
um, final what?

Would you pay $55 - $65 to see such a performance?

Definitely, that would be totally worth it, I'd road-trip to see it!
Yes if I had that kind of money, but I don't.
It sounds pricey, but I might, if it was on a convenient night.
Probably not.
Definitely not worth it

Any additional suggestions, thoughts, or comments you can offer?

I have a friend who went to the concert, it was a pretty big deal for her. She would totally go again, I think.

I would love it. I hav ea number of Final Fantasy remixes.

Ditto. Friend and her sister aren't really concert goers. They paid big bucks to a scalper to get tickets for this.
