Link is back, in symphonic form!
Anyone who was disappointed when the Minibosses didn’t play their version of the Legend of Zelda theme at Subzero—hey, there are more of us than you think—can take some comfort in the knowledge that an entire show will be devoted to the themes from various games in the series when the “Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses” tour comes to the San Jose Civic on September 7.
A bit of explanation for the unitiatiated: Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda games have featured some of the best video game music of all time. Many of us can remember the spooky theme of the original echoing in our heads all day after being up all night trying to help Link fix that damn Triforce of Wisdom and hook up with the princess.
There are long, drawn out and sometimes heated debates across the Internet about which Zelda games have the best music, but here is the line-up of games touched on for this new four-movement symphony to be performed by a full orchestra: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Legend of Zelda: The Wind Walker, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.
Tickets go on sale Friday, June 15 at 10am, through Ticketmaster.
