The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Tour" is a spectacular concert that features live orchestral performances of theme music from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda franchise. The concert is touring North America and is coming to Los Angeles, CA on June 6, 2012 at 8:00pm at the Greek Theatre. The concert will coincide with E3, the world's premier trade show for computer and video games and related products, which is taking place June 5-7, 2012 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The name "Symphony of the Goddesses" refers not only to the concert program but also to the new four-movement symphony recounting the classic storylines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The concert also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from other series games, including The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Eímear Noone will conduct the full orchestra with arrangements by music director Chad Seiter.
Since first appearing in 1986, The Legend of Zelda game series has sold more than 65 million units worldwide. The most recent entry in the series is The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which launched exclusively for the Wii console in November 2011.
"Los Angeles is a thriving hub for gaming—for fans, developers, gaming companies, and more," notes Jason Michael Paul, CEO of Jason Michael Paul Productions, which is producing the concert tour. "Having this special concert during E3 is befitting of Zelda's legendary status in gaming lore," adds Paul.
