Nintendo’s 2012 Concert Series for the Legend of Zelda Will Kick Off in Dallas

Dallas Symphony Orchestra to Play ‘Symphony of the Goddesses’ on Jan. 10

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Video game fans in the Lone Star State will soon be able to experience Nintendo’s musical tribute to The Legend of Zelda™ video game series. On Jan. 10, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform orchestral arrangements of music from the game’s 25-year history accompanied by video content from the games themselves. This new concert series will go on tour across the United States in 2012 as The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses. Tickets for the Dallas performance are now available at Ticketmaster and range in price from $19 to $115. Through Nov. 30, tickets are available to Club Nintendo™ members at a 15 percent discount.

Nintendo has teamed up with Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc. to provide video game fans with the ultimate musical experience for The Legend of Zelda. The highlight of this new musical program is a full four-movement symphony that will guide fans through a musical retelling of key chapters from The Legend of Zelda franchise. The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concerts will be conducted by Irish-born conductor Eimear Noone, and the multimedia show will pair iconic music and gorgeous visuals from classic Zelda titles, including the newest game in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii™ console.

“The love that fans feel for The Legend of Zelda series cannot be overstated,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “In 2012, we want to give people across the country a chance to come together and enjoy the music from the games that mean so much to so many.”

“The Legend of Zelda is as close to our hearts as it is for the fans,” said Jeron Moore, producer for Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc. “The tour will be something both fans of the franchise and music enthusiasts alike won’t want to miss.”

Additional performance dates will be announced in the future. For more information about the concerts, visit http://www.zelda-symphony.com. For more information about the ticket discount available to Club Nintendo members, please visit http://club.nintendo.com.

I dunno if I would want to go. The audience would annoy me if they're anything like the Los Angeles one

Didn't really think I'd be into this, as I came to the Zelda games later than most. (Played Zelda 2 as a kid, didn't love it... didn't play again until Twilight Princess! But I'm making amends, having played Wind Waker and just finished Ocarina 3D.) After watching the 3DS video of the orchestra recording the Main Theme Medley, though, I'd think about going if it swung through Boston. Got me all riled up and I'm not even a huge fan.

Awesome. As much as they do for Zelda's birthday party i can see us celebrating the Anniversary of the Anniversary in five years.


If they decide to tour in Europe, please visit Germany too. The nearer to Duisburg the better. ;)

Come on San Diego!

We didn't get a video game concert this past Comic-Con (we've had Video Games Live and a couple Final Fantasy concerts before) and this would certainly do nicely!
