Concert Information


Dear friends who are attending the Distant Worlds and A New World performances on December 26 and 27, this is Nobuo Uematsu writing.

While I have been looking forward to attending our final concerts of 2015 in Chicago, I must announce an unfortunate change of plans. Due to unanticipated and overwhelming mental and physical fatigue I am unable to travel outside of Japan before the New Year. This means that I cannot attend this week’s performances. I will try to recover as quickly as possible surrounded by family and other support.

Please accept my apology; my absence in Chicago is truly disappointing to me. I promise to find an opportunity for us to celebrate together in the future.

With best wishes for what I know will be magnificent Chicago performances, and looking forward to being together in 2016.

Sincerely, Nobuo
