Tickets For The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Concert Now Onsale

The tour kicked off early last year, but it's coming to London for one night only. Following a wildly successful and delightfully entertaining slew of 25th Anniversary concerts a couple of years ago, the Symphony of the Goddesses tour hits the UK on May 23rd, 2013 at the Hammersmith Apollo.

Here's the official blurb:

Featuring a first in video game concert history, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has been arranged and programmed with classical sensibilities in mind, organizing the music of this beloved franchise into a complete, 4 movement symphony, worthy of the Hero of Hyrule himself.

Featuring new arrangements directly approved by Eiji Aonuma and Koji Kondo, concert tickets can be purchased here, with prices ranging from £33.75 for seats in the gods and towards the rear, to £110.50 for spots close to the stage. Hammersmith Apollo is actually pretty well-designed, though, so even at the back you get a pretty good view of things.

There's more info to be found here.

Matt! Don't tell me you just wrote "a pretty good view of things" for a musical concert!

Personally, live performances are about the spectacle as much as the music. Plus, they'll have a large screen streaming clips and pieces from the series across the years to tie into the movements, and maybe even a guest or two. I'll concede, it's not as crucial as when you're in a theatre for a play or comedy, or even a regular gig, but the sense of occasion is often aided by the visual...imho :-)

If anyone does bag some tickets for this, by the way, do let us know. I nabbed mine earlier today.

Fair enough Matt, I'd always advise anyone to do a bit of research on the acoustics of the venue before buying tickets. I'm not sure about the Hammersmith but if you're in an acoustic shadow probably near the back or underneath a row you'll only be getting largely reflected audio which will be akin to watching a blurry (in the audible sense) and out of sync tv. Basic rules are direct sound is desirable so no obstructions between you and the source and lastly short reflections of sound only, if you get something that's bounced around the room or travelled a long way it's going to make the clarity of the audio blurry at best or echoic at worst.

It's a shame that it's not there for more than one night. It's always nice to see how acoustics vary depending upon where you've sat. To be honest, I've never witnessed anything orchestral at the Apollo so I can't really comment...usually it's side-splitting comedy, or I'm breaking my neck in the mosh pit.
