Symphony of the Goddesses Tour Heading to the UK

JohnJanuary 13th, 2013 by John

The Symphony of the Goddesses tour has delighted and amazed thousands of fans across America with its imaginative and touching renditions of the Zelda series’ most well-known music. However, it wasn’t until after ten months of touring America which we finally got wind of the tour stopping off at a country other than America; Australian Zelda fans celebrated as it was announced that Sydney would be getting two concert dates at the beginning of February. Despite this, it still begged the question: would we possibly see any other international tour dates before the tour ends? Fortunately, the answer is yes!

Hit the jump to find out more!

As many of you may remember, the Hammersmith Apollo has already been host to the Zelda series’ music previously. In 2011, as part of the 25th Anniversary of the series, London was one of the three cities to receive a series of one-off concerts to celebrate the music of Zelda and to build up excitement for the Symphony of the Goddesses tour. Needless to say, almost everyone who attended unanimously agreed that it was a massive success–a claim which I can support, as hearing the stunning renditions of the Zelda music effectively reduced me to tears by the time the concert had finished.

The concert is going to be held on the 23rd of May and entry will begin at 6:30pm GMT. Performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, tickets will go on sale on Monday the 14th of January at 10am GMT and will range from £33.75 to £100, so you may have to start saving up quickly if you want to get a seat before the concert sells out, which it inevitably will do so quickly. You can purchase tickets when they so on sale here.

I’m delighted that the Symphony of the Goddesses tour is finally coming to the UK. After being swept away by the 25th Anniversary Concert in 2011, I can’t wait to see what musical surprises the producers will have in store for us this time round. Hopefully if there are any British Zelda Dungeon readers out there then I’ll see you all there at the Apollo in May.

But what do you think? Are you happy that the tour is finally making a European stop? Are you perhaps upset that the tour hasn’t visited your country yet? Tell us in the comments below!

  • masked vigilanta

    yo Hey ever body just wanted to say this as a discussion starter I’m
    confused why is it that Nintendo remake’s oot nothing wrong with that
    ocarina of time the best zelda game ever supposedly made and Square enix
    is scared to make a remake of FINAL FANTASY 7? cause they think it
    there best game ever and it once it made no one’s gonna want to buy the
    any of the other pufff I mean you introduce a game that good to the
    public people get hooked off that game and then they become fans of the
    francise. But square is complete diffrient company by all mean’s but
    I’m just saying nintendo made a remake’s of Oot for the 3ds they should
    make one for majors’s mask cause majors mask is a sequal to the best
    game ever so it would make sense for a remake cause it’s easily set up
    for them cause on the end of oot3d it’s the same ending showing navi
    going away and you know link’s set’s out on a quest to find her so I
    mean bam people new to zelda that played oot3d for the first time would
    be like would be like I want to see what happends next but you know they
    would make a good profit from it cause I and many others would buy the
    remake too add it to there collection or just buy it too play it. I just
    think nintendo need’s to adnounce one soon cause the wait for a
    adnouncement is mad and can’t drive a person insane lol. But square enix
    should make a remake for FINAL FANTASY VII I herd they want to wait
    until they go bank rupted or make a game that’s better than Final
    Fantasy vii then they’ll make one puff that’s pretty dumb if you ask me
    but I think they should just make one cause you know some of there Final
    Fantasy’s are good and some just suck but you know I’m a Zelda nerd/
    FInal FANTASY nerd but you know people that are as crasy about these
    type’s of game’s would just buy them for the sake of buying them cause
    there fan’s and a fan follow’s the team even i the darkest hours of the
    game but on the other hand some people don’t care and would say oot is
    the best and the other rest suck but that wrong cause it just saying
    only one player one the team is good and the rest of the team sucks but
    you gotta give them a chance cause they might make a good comeback and
    you might over look some of the mistakes they made. but yeah zelda
    game’s are all good well I mean there pretty much all good except for
    the cdi games cause I don’t really consider them games and vise verusa
    for Final Fantasy some might say others are games stupid and suck and
    that ff 7 is the best FF game there is but some might say 8 or 9 is
    better and 7 sucks I mean what I’m trying to say is too spread the word
    and you know and what did you think about what I had said I mean we all
    want a remake for majors mask and I wouldn’t mind seeing one for FF7 so
    maybe we should all bring it to attention to nintendo and square that
    they should make the remake’s for us the one’s that we want and ask
    about cause we are the fan’s we are the one’s that pay’s them with are
    hard working money so we have the power to say, do and make what we want
    so comment to this message and spread the word to the video game
    company’s that you care and love dear let you’re voice be herd lol but
    don’t be shy Just one thing too ad they gotta make a new Banjo Kazooie
    game I mean and original classic for the fans too love yeah welll that’s
    all you guy’s that all I have to say.

    • hot apple Fi

      This post made me tired.

      • masked vigilanta

        Even tho it may have board you what do you think?

    • YeahEyephone

      You know what man I never really thought about it but I never played a final fantasy game in my life but it makes some sort of sense I guess well what ever I just want to see majoras mask for the wii u that’s my dream bro.

    • Mr Lemon

      I think a majoras mask remake would be great but as a final fantasy fan I don’t want to see VII remade, as SE have said at points in the past few years the game will show its age if it is remade, and they would rather people go on about how they want a remake because its the best game ever than people complain about a remake that didnt live up to the fans expectations, and instead of dwelling in the past it is better if they push the series forward and try to make games that are better than it because if they did remake and it was a success, where could they go from there? It’s all about opinion on the remake topic but in mine i would rather SE try and improve and move forward with the franchise and let the nostalgia memories remain for the fans instead of being disappointed. Also as microsoft bought rare and the old rare members who made Banjo-Kazooie left it most likely wont happen unless nintendo bought the rights to the Banjo-Kazooie franchise, but there is hope on that front as a group called mingy jongo made up of the old rare members want to make a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie. And in those members is grant kirkhope who made the amazing music to the original.

      Skylofter poses a very interesting question.
      I cannot answer it either, but may I urge whoever can answer it to do so?

  • GOROHUG!!!!!!!!!!

    This needs to come to continental Europe. Or they could have another UK date when I could go to the UK.
