'Metal Gear in Concert' coming to Japan, then the World

Seemingly just to keep the Metal Gear name kicking around, Konami has nonetheless announced a tantalizing concert performance for fans of Hideo Kojima’s long-running series. Metal Gear in Concert will be performed twice this Summer in Japan, first at the Orix Theatre in Osaka on July 30th and again at the Tokyo International Forum on August 2nd.

Each will be performed by the city’s resident orchestra (the Tokyo Philharmonic and the Osaka Symphony Orchestra) and will be conducted by Nicholas Buc. Singer/songwriter Donna Burke will also be performing which means her vocal themes from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Metal Gear Solid V will most surely be played. The full setlist hasn’t been announced yet but Burke recently recorded new versions of all the Metal Gear Solid vocal tracks so it’s possible she’ll feature heavily throughout the evening. Like most video game concerts, Metal Gear in Concert will also feature a synchronized video presentation above the players with footage from the series.

Don’t fret, Western fans! While the show is debuting exclusively in Japan, Konami mentions that plans are in the works to bring the show on tour to North America and Europe but presumably not until 2018. For those interested in attending there are more details on Konami’s site. The rest of us will just have to dig out our old albums or involuntarily start humming the “MGS Main Theme” as I’ve been doing while writing this post.
