Nintendo and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir will be bringing the sell-out musical show The Legend of Zelda: 25th Anniversary Symphony back to London for one night on May 23rd to kick-off a European leg of the extravaganza which has now been renamed the ‘Symphony of the Goddesses’ tour.
The Legend of Zelda tour launched in Tokyo in 2011 to celebrate the quarter century milestone of the on-going adventures of Link, Princess Zelda and foe Ganon on Nintendo platforms and featured a beautifully orchestrated soundtrack spanning the entire legacy of the series.
The tour also visited Los Angeles and made just one stop in London, which sold out within hours and attracted everyone from the casual fan to veteran adventurers some who turned up in full costume (such as cosplayer Kara Hook, pictured below).
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses will happen at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on May 23rd and will include spell-binding tunes from games such as A Link to the Past, Majora’s Mask, The Wind Waker, the epic Ocarina of Time and more – all played out by the famous orchestra in front of a montage of classic game footage.
With the popularity of The Legend of Zelda still soaring high this is great news for UK fans as we’re nearing the gaming series’ twenty seventh year as a Nintendo staple. We’ve also recently seen the UK release of Hyrule Historia, the Amazon US chart-topping bible of all things Zelda and the Gadget Helpline was pleased to hear that Wind Waker, originally released for the GameCube, is confirmed for an HD makeover on the current Nintendo console, the Wii U.
