The Zelda Symphony Tour Adds <i>Breath of the Wild</i>, Announces 2017 Tour

A new Zelda game means new Zelda music, which, in turn, means it’s time for The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses tour to update its playlist. Today the premier live videogame music experience announced its 2017 tour, which will feature a reconfigured program including music from Breath of the Wild for the first time, along with a new section based on 2011’s Skyward Sword and the return of the popular Ballad of the Wind Fish suite. The rest of the “reimagined score” will include familiar melodies from the full history of The Legend of Zelda, many of which were originally composed by Nintendo’s legendary Koji Kondo.

If you’re wondering what this symphony tour thing is, well, imagine a large orchestra and choir jamming out on some of your favorite videogame music, while a custom collage of Zelda footage plays in the background. With 66 musicians and 24 singers, this is a legitimate symphony experience, one that will absolutely play the chimes you first heard when you pulled that boomerang out of a treasure chest in that first eagle-shaped dungeon 30 years ago. It’s the power of music marshaled in full force to create something heavily steeped in nostalgia but not merely limited to it. It’s also probably just a good time, if you dig this kind of stuff, and if you dig good times.
