The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses tour dates announced

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, a showcase of the best music from Nintendo’s legendary game series, returns tonight with an appearance on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, and if you’re looking to hear your favorite Wind Waker tunes in person, you just might be in luck: the concert is coming to quite a few cities.

The tour actually begins tonight at the Barclays Center in New York City, with the Late Show appearance airing just a few hours later at 11:35 EST. The television performance will include the interlude arrangement from the upcoming multiplayer-focused Tri Force Heroes, and the full concert includes songs from Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, and even the Game Boy-exclusive Link’s Awakening. As you can see from the above clip, synchronizing the performance with footage of the Zelda games creates quite an intense with of audio and visuals … and reminds you of how lame Zelda II is.

In 2015, the tour will go to Salt Late City, Houston, Dallas, and Portland before making its way to Europe. Next year, Nashville, Boston, Jacksonville, and Columbus are among the locations. For the full list, be sure to check out the schedule on the Zelda Symphony website.

While Symphony of the Goddesses is certainly the most “official” Zelda concert ever produced — it includes “all-new arrangements directly approved by franchise producer Eija Aonuma and Nintendo composer and sound director Koji Kondo — those looking for more live music should consider checking out Video Games Live. The tour, run by former Judgment Day host Tommy Tallarico, includes songs from Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Chrono Trigger, and several other Nintendo series. It makes its way back to the United States in 2016, with stops in Newark, Toledo, and Richmond. Back in August, Tallarico took the show to Blizzcon for a nearly hour-long performance of Blizzard music.
