Xion is playing an oboe, yeah, (kind of funny since that the oboe is Shimomura's favorite instrument and is often featured in her pieces while Xion is the character everyone forgot).

Lea also looks like he has shorter hair (and a scarf), pretty fitting that he's shown with a trumpet.

Sadly he doesn't have a scarf on. He has a collared shirt, though Nomura's sketchy lines make the back of his shirt look like it is fanning out a bit.

I think Yoko really likes Xion. Xion does have the best themes in the series.

Edit: WAIT YOU ARE RIGHT! I didn't zoom in ;A; He has a scarf! Fancy <3

Three of them are actually "new" pieces.

The Unknown, Power of the Darkness, and Journey of Kingdom Hearts, then whatever the encore piece is would be the fourth.

Is it goofy that I burst into tears when I saw the artwork with all of the characters? Oh my gosh I am even shaking. For the longest of time I have wanted for Nomura to do something like this, and then he did. Gahhh, all of my friends from the past 13, in the same artwork.

Ooh, and new music too! o_o

I don't understand Aibo's comment about not spoiling anything. It's a concert for goodness' sake, if attendees don't talk about it, no one else will know what happened. It makes no sense to me, really.
