Last month, Nintendo announced the cancellation of Nintendo Live 2024, which was due to take place on January 20th and 21st in Tokyo, Japan. Among the festivities planned for the event was a live orchestral Zelda performance, so you can imagine our disappointment when we learned that the event had been cancelled. Luckily for Zelda fans everywhere, Nintendo announced today that the “Legend of Zelda Orchestra Concert” originally planned for Nintendo Live 2024 will be presented on Nintendo’s YouTube channels on February 9th.
“The Legend of Zelda Orchestra Concert” will premiere on Nintendo’s YouTube channels on February 9th at 5 AM PT. The pre-recorded event will be approximately 30 minutes long and will feature songs from across the Zelda series, from the first Zelda title to Tears of the Kingdom. You can find a full list of the performing musicians right here.
Mark your calendars for this special The Legend of #Zelda Orchestra Concert! 🎶
