Back when The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was the new Zelda game, part of the series' anniversary celebrations for that year was a traveling orchestra that performed live arrangements of music from across the long history of Zelda games. The concept proved to be so popular that they brought it back the following year, and it still persists to this day. Now, the dates and locations for the 2017 North American tour have been revealed.
If you go through here, the full list of confirmed shows is available, and it's quite a doozy. The show will last for about two and a half hours (including the intermission) and all times listed are local. Also, bear in mind that more dates are forthcoming, so keep an eye on the orchestra's main site for details. Hopefully, this one will also feature some newer arrangements from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
What do you think? Have you ever attended one of the shows? Will you go to one this year? Drop us a comment in the section below.
Might pick up tickets to Atlanta!
I'm thinking of seeing the LA show; I saw it in Chicago when it first came through and that was quite an experience.
I went last year and I absolutely loved it. It's truly an experience.
I got an email about this a few days ago. I do believe there's supposed to be a new Breath of the Wild piece, if memory serves.
To those who have never been to a Symphony of the Goddesses performance: If you are a Zelda fan, a fan of cosplay, or just have an appreciation for orchestrated video game music in general, this production cannot be missed! I just went this past fall, and it was an amazing experience.
Didn't go the last time they toured in Washington State because I didn't have a job at the time. Now I do. Looking to go when they come to Seattle in September.
@Link-Hero Seattle? Maybe I'll see you there. I love orchestra music. Gotta play Breath of the Wild first though.
Woo-hoo! They're coming back to Utah. Definitely going again.
Every year, Austin and San Antonio, but never Dallas. Austin and San Antonio are so close together too.
I went last year and it was pretty nice. The only issue I had was that at least around here they didn't play in a proper concert hall. Instead they played in a stadium which means bad acoustics and therefore the need to use loudspeakers. That kind of defeats the purpose of going to a classical concert.
The New York show is a few blocks away from my apartment, I'm so in.
@countzero Interesting, I thought they only go for theater-like venues
No date in France ! What a disappointment !
Program shows at least one Breath of the Wild piece, FYI.
@SwitchVogel Not in Germany apparently
I was in Stuttgart and the show they do in Düsseldorf this year seems to be in a similar location.
Just waiting on payday. Since they have added BotW to the score I'm going ... again..
@jayzzx DPAC is pretty popular. And it is a nice space for the venue; I went there for my Bday last year. DPAC is over priced as heck though. But they get some top notch stuff there. So I guess that is the trade off.
I've been to the Austin show twice. It's an unforgettable experience. It's an 8 hour drive for me (Tulsa, OK), but totally worth it! Fortunately, they've started bringing it to Oklahoma City, so I might try to make it there in December!
Why don't they ever come to Detroit?
Still no Las Vegas show. **sadface**
Shame they seem to have deserted Wembley Arena for the Apollo for the London venue this year.
@King47 I feel you...
A show in Norfolk? Insta-buy.
Woo! Finally, a show here in KC!!!
I have never gotten the opportunity to attend one, but I would love to go at least once. There is something appealing about listening to Zelda music in concert.
I saw the LA Show last year and have tickets bought for this year! The Dolby Theatre is great, right in the middle of Hollywood, so there's tons of other stuff to do afterwards. Go if you're able, should be a delightful treat!
@jayzzx Before it came to DPAC I drove 4 hours to see it a Wolf Trap in VA. I went to NYC last year. It is well worth the time spent traveling.
