I made the original thread back in 2009 (with an old account) and I'm heading towards Japan again this spring & summer. It has been really interesting to follow what concerts have been arranged in Japan, even when I was nowhere near the country. Thanks Carl, Adam Corn & others for your investigative skills!

Aug 12: Littlejack Orchestra - 9th regular concert (Final Fantasy?)
This is a fan orchestra doing a concert every year in Yokohama.
The setlist for this concert seems to be:
Symphonic Suite Final Fantasy V
Final Fantasy I-III Battle Medley
Liberi Fatali (FF8)
(There's an anime/game/original techno rave thing in Shinjuku on May 3rd:)
I always use this site, although you'll need to be able to read Japanese:
I keep being surprised by the sheer number of Dragon Quest concerts EVERY YEAR.
Other things of note include:
Persona Music Live 2012 (April 8th, Tokyo, Live band)
Game Music Concert on Piano (June 16th, Aichi)
The Music Mages 5th Stage (October 27th/28th, Tokyo)
Uematsu on electone!
And I'm sure there'll be a Press Start 2012 as well at some point.
