Zelda Concert Series Kicks Off in October in Ye Ol' Los Angeles

Because nothing says fancy like dressing up for orchestral Zelda music.

I'd pay good money to hear an ocarina solo.

I'll admit to having chills when Shigeru Miyamoto came on stage at the Nintendo press conference, backed by an orchestra playing music from The Legend of Zelda. Nostalgia, man. Bask in it.

As part of celebrating the 25th anniversary of the series, Nintendo announced a concert series that would be going around the world. The first details on that series are coming out, with the premiere taking place on October 21 in Los Angeles, California at the Pantages Theatre.

Tickets will set you back $35 for cheap seats. Prices go as high as $173, though. For that price, maybe you'll get to hold hands with Miyamoto.

The whole tour is being organized and produced by Jason Michael Paul Productions, the same company behind the very successful (and fun) PLAY! A Video Game Symphony series.

No word on the dates or venues for the rest of the tour, which will wind its way around in 2012. Keep an eye on www.zelda-symphony.com, however, for the latest.

Heh, Zelda. And music! Not a big nostalgia for me, but good music.

Of any franchise to get a symphony tour like this, Zelda is definitely one of the best (from a purely musical perspective).

Now if only we could get the Portal 2 cracked-out noise techno night club tour.

If they come to Toronto, I'll be there. This post prompted me to check my old email addy to find that my Ocarina soundtrack has in fact shipped! Excitement!

I would go but then I'd be surrounded by all kinds of crazy people.

I hope the come to Texas and hopefully south texas I want to go to this I would go to it.

I don't really want to go only because of how awkward it will be to see people scream and burst into tears when every song starts.

Posted by Gerhabio

Cool! I think I'll try to go.

Will definitely go to this depending upon where it is in the UK

I wonder if people have gotten their LoZ:OoT sound track thingy. I kind of want to hear the orchestra track on it.

@Zor: Got mine last week. Good stuff.

This is in LA, the same weekend as Blizzcon? Freaking nerd overload man.

I hope this comes up to the bay.

Perfect. Probably in time for midterms. Go bruins?

Knowing Nintendo, this concern will probably not even set foot in Canada.

If they come near where I live, I'm definitely there!

I can only hope they come near me in New Orleans. If they come directly here I will shed one single Native American tear.

Awesome, i wish they would include Brazil in that "going around the world" thing. I´m pretty sure the attendance would be high.
We already had Video Games Live concerts for 5 consecutive years, and those are always a blast over here.

I'll be back up in Berkeley by then! Damn it. Why doesn't anything happen in Southern California while I'm here in the summer?

*ignores E3, comic-con, and anime expo*

@LinusPauling: Fuck ya go Bruins, but you're probably right about this being right during midterms (looks like it'll be Tuesday of week 5).
