3-With Original Singer Donna Burke performing
Donna Burke is an Australian singer, actress and lyricist, famous for her work in various Game and Anime, who has lived in Tokyo since 1996. She first came to prominence as an actress in Konami's Silent Hill 2 (Angela), and 3 (Claudia). Then in 2010 Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker brought players to tears with Donna's beautiful rendition of the theme song “When Heaven's Divide”. Donna voiced the iDroid character in Ground Zeroes in 2013 and for the subsequent The Phantom Pain.
In 2015, the full version of the explosive “Sins of the Father” was finally heard in it's entirety, a song that had haunted fans since it's partial release at E3 in 2013. In 2015, Donna recorded covers for the Metal Gear Solid Vocal Album, including Snake Eater, Can't say Goodbye to Yesterday, The Best is Yet to Come, Love's Theme and Quiet's Theme. In 2016 she formed Ganime Jazz, a jazz quintet in Tokyo, taking her songs to a more intimate, immediate setting for fans to enjoy. Donna's voice is now an iconic one for Metal Gear fans, and she is humbled and delighted to be able to sing the songs of Metal Gear in Concert, live on stage, for fans around the world.
4-A memorable tribute to a beloved saga
Beloved by millions of fans, the video game series has sold more than 50 million units worldwide over the 30 years since its release. A particular breakout success since the “Metal Gear Solid” instalment that was released on PlayStation in 1998, the series' popularity continued to soar up to the release of the fifth main episode “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” on PlayStation IV in 2015, the top-selling METAL GEAR game of all time.
Setting the standard for action-adventure stealth video games, it mainly revolves around the now-legendary character of Solid Snake and his nemesis Big Boss, who are both working to infiltrate and take down an evil organization that poses a threat to the world. Known for its extreme attention to detail and complex and elaborate plotlines, and the entire series is considered both a defining point and a milestone in video-game history.
