While there have been other musical tours and concerts to celebrate The Legend of Zelda, it's the officially-sanctioned "Symphony of the Goddesses" tours that have been widely acclaimed, which began with the 25th Anniversary celebrations and even a CD with special edition copies of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Unsurprisingly, considering its successes, it's returning for a fresh tour in 2015, titled Master Quest. In addition to music previously performed — such as the four-movement symphony taking in the franchise's most iconic titles — there'll be new compositions and accompanying footage for 3DS titles The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Majora's Mask. Jason Michael Paul, President of Jason Michael Paul Productions — which is producing this tour in partnership with Nintendo — says the following in the press release.
The continued excitement around The Legend of Zelda franchise 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.
