Before it goes on full tour next year, The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert, first announced last month at E3 to the joyous applause of Nintendorks everywhere (including myself!), is officially scheduled to make its debut on October 21st at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Tickets go on sale starting August 1st and will be available for as cheap as $35. Be sure to bookmark zelda-symphony.com to keep up with all the latest concert updates.

At the concert, a 70-piece orchestra and choir will perform new arrangements of classic songs from The Legend of Zelda series, hand-picked by Nintendo composer Koji Kondo and produced by Jason Michael Paul Productions. The ‘Legend of Zelda Suite’ on the Video Games Live – Level 2 album gives me nostalgic goosebumps every single time I listen to it, so I can only imagine how amazing it will be to hear nothing but sweet, sweet Zelda melodies for a full-length, live concert.

“The Legend of Zelda has few peers in the pantheon of video game giants, and the games and their music have always shared a deep connection,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Through these concerts, fans nationwide will be able to gather and show their love for the quarter century of action, adventure and excitement that The Legend of Zelda games have brought to their lives.”

“The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert Tour brings one of the video game industry’s most exciting and enduring franchises to the concert hall and presents what we feel is the definitive concert experience for the series,” said executive producer Jason Michael Paul. “It’s an event that fans and music aficionados won’t want to miss.”
