Nobuo Uematsu

Nobuo Uematsu is a legendary Japanese composer and keyboardist best known for his contributions to the Final Fantasy video game series by Square Enix.

Uematsu joined Square in 1986, where he first met the creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi. The two later collaborated on many games at the company, particularly in the Final Fantasy series. After nearly two decades with Square, Uematsu left in 2004 to establish his own production company and record label, Dog Ear Records. Since then, he has composed music as a freelancer for other games, including those developed by Square Enix and Sakaguchi's development studio, Mistwalker.

Uematsu is perhaps most famous for composing the soundtrack for Final Fantasy VII, a soundtrack that he's also known to perform live.

Concert at Hjertnes Kulturhus in Sandefjord

Nobuo Uematsu is joined by his band, and the concert is held at Hjertnes Kulturhus in cooperation with Sandefjord Kommune.

This is a truly unique opportunity to experience a living legend perform his own music!
We hope that everyone who plays video games or loves music joins us for this potentially once in a lifetime opportunity.
The concert is held on Saturday 19th of August 18:00..
