Yuki Kajiura LIVE～featuring SWORD ART ONLINE～
It’s filled with all the songs from Sword Art Online.
I’m honored to have this concert again in Los Angeles this time, and I’m looking forward to it.
I hope the SAO fans in the United States also enjoy the sound of the SAO world to the fullest.

“Sword Art Online THE MOVIE – Ordinal Scale – ” Roadshow release in Spring 2017!
Featuring a complete new original story by the author Reki Kawahara!
In 2022, a genius programmer, Akihiko Kayaba, developed the world’s first full-dive device called “Nerve Gear”. This new innovative machine brought unlimited potentials to the VR world. Then, four years passed by… As if to challenge its succeeding VR machine “Amusphere”, a completely new, new generation wearable multi-device, “Augma”, is released. It is the cutting edge machine that removed the full-dive device and instead boasts the ability to enhance AR (Augmented Reality) to the maximum. Because of the safety and convenience of “Augma” that allows the wearers to use it while being awake, it soon spread to more users. Its killer content is called “Ordinal Scale (OS)”, which is an ARMMO RPG driven exclusively by this “Augma”.
Asuna and others have been playing the game, and Kirito also tries to join in…
