Zelda Symphony 2012 Tour Starts Kicking Tomorrow!

In order to celebrate The Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary, Nintendo is going to hold Zelda symphony. Zelda symphony is an orchestral concert where songs from The Legend of Zelda is played. The official name is Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses. I bet my five bucks that the concert won’t be disappointing.

The Zelda symphony concert itself consists of a full choir with 70-piece orchestra plus brand new arrangements. The songs are chosen by Koji Kondo, the well-known game composer. He is the one who composed the songs in Mario series and The Legend of Zelda. The producer of “PLAY! A Video Game Symphony”, Jason Michael Paul Production, is going to produce the Zelda Symphony.

The premier was held in Pantages Theatre at Los Angeles on the 21st of October 2011. In the premier, Mr. Eiji Aonuma and Mr. Koji Kondo was there. A Lot of Zelda fans that have attended the premier show have posted the review. They say that the Zelda Symphony is breathtaking and dazzling. The money they spent for it didn’t go for nothing. It was unforgettable according to the attendants’ reviews whether they favor either the moments when the songs are played or when seeing the legendary composer in person.

You can buy the tickets via Ticketmaster. The price varies from $19 up to $115. Of course, what you pay is what you get. Originally, a 15 percent discount was only eligible for Nintendo Club members until recently, last Friday, it is stated in the official Twitter and Facebook accounts of Zelda Symphony that everyone can get the 15 percent discount by entering HOOKSHOT as the discount code on Ticketmaster. By the time I am writing this article, the tickets for the first show in 2012 tomorrow that takes place in Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas have sold out. C’mon cheapskates! Don’t wait until the tickets are all sold out!

Currently, the official schedule only involves the US. No news yet regarding the Zelda Symphony’s concert outside the US, but I am looking forward to it. The concerts always start from 8 PM and some may start at 7.30 PM. This list is the latest list as of today (Monday, 9th of January 2012) taken from the official site:
