SCORE! The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses is returning with a Part 2, due to popular demand. The musical epicness will hit eight cities that experienced the concert last year, with two new locations announced that have NEVER HEARD THE MAGIC. In the cities where the show will be returning, concert goers will be hearing brand new material that spans additional chapters in The Legend of Zelda series, in addition to the pieces heard last year.
Eímear Noone will be conducting under the arrangements of director Chad Seiter, with producer Jeron Moore assuming hosting duties (he’s super corny, but so loveable!). Fans and newcomers alike can expect to hear orchestral music approved by Zelda composer Koji Kondo spanning the series’ 27-year history, from such classics as A Link to the Past, Majora’s Mask, Ocarina of Time, Link’s Awakening, and Wind Waker. Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, which is producing the concert tour, had these kind words to say about the concert: “The demand for Zelda is amazing, and this special concert will deliver an unforgettable experience for fans. These performances transcend culture and geography and unite people through a common love for this venerable and legendary series.”
Gamers can find a complete tour schedule and ticket info here, and Club Nintendo members can get a sweet 15% discount by logging into their accounts and looking for a discount code on the show’s banner. Cities and show dates can be found below. I had a blast at the show last year, and will have to travel to experience new music, since it isn’t returning to New York (if I end up in LA or Philly, I’ll be the guy in the Ghirahim costume, because he is SO STYLIN’).
