Metal Gear in Concert is a orchestral performance of a variety of music tracks from the Metal Gear series, with vocals by Donna Burke, who sang themes for both Peace Walker (Heavens Divide) and The Phantom Pain (Sins of the Father). Some of the music tracks are “Main Theme,” “Encounter,” “Father and Son,” “The Best is Yet to Come,” “Snake Eater,” and “Heavens Divide”.
