As part of the 25th anniversary of the Legend Zelda
franchise, Nintendo announced a series of concerts
that would feature orchestral renditions of iconic music from the classic
games. In the US the series began in LA (where we interviewed composer Koji Kondo),
and most recently there’s a sold out show January 10 in Dallas. While the official site
doesn’t list any other dates, if Ticketmaster is to be believed, at least five
more concerts are happening in North America this year.

First found by NEOGAF,
five new dates for Zelda concerts. Our Canadian friends in Vancouver have one
scheduled for March 14, then Phoenix, Arizona apparently has two scheduled for
April 20 and 21. Following that the Zelda fun heads south, as Atlanta, Georgia
hosts the event May 12, and on July 14 Nintendo comes to Orlando, Florida.
According to the site, tickets go on sale tomorrow, so hopefully Nintendo will
formally announce these dates in the next 24 hours, and you can hold out hope
the company will reveal more shows in [insert your town] as well.
