This one's going to have something from Link's Awakening!? :O

I already went to the 25th London one, but might have to go to this one now, haha. As much as I loved the 25th anniversary concert, I was really sad at the lack of a showing from LA.

Still waiting for Chicago or Indy. I live in Indiana and they'll never go to Fort Wayne so those are two other cities I can easily get to. Something in Ohio wouldn't be that bad either. MAYBE Detroit but that is still a rather long drive.

Of course, if they don't do a Chicago stop then we have working passports and Dad wants to go to Toronto sometime anyways. Still would prefer something closer.

I'm actually pretty surprised that they didn't say New York City as they have a Nintendo World down there. I thought it would be cool if they played in the Ice Rink area so then when people are done with the concert Nintendo can lure people into buying stuff.

Quick question. Why is it that the article says "Orlando FLA" instead of "Orlando Flo", or "Orlando FL", or something alike?

@41: OK, so why the original article says "Fla"? I thought i was missing something there. Is it a mistake, or it can be written like that?

Be sure to visit all concerts, people. As we've learned from the official timeline a small mistake on the 69th harp note of the Theme Medley leads to a whole different concert, maybe even parallel universe. Enjoy the dark world. ;)
As said before if it comes to Germany i'm sure i'd go. The nearer to Duisburg the more likely.
