The fourth season of MGP Live's hit video game music concerts will visit London, Dusseldorf, Barcelona and Florence

After sold-out shows in North America, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses is coming to Europe. The upcoming shows will feature new music from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, an all-new movement from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, an updated overture and the return of a classic that promoter MGP Live says “might just make some wishes come true!”
Celebrating 30 years of stirring virtual adventure and memorable soundtracks with live orchestral renditions with oversight and approval from the game’s developers and composers, The Symphony of the Goddesses is now in its fourth season.
The two-hour concert comes to life with the full Tuscany Symphony Orchestra, a 20-person choir, and a reimagined score that draws from requested Zelda games, including The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, while still paying homage to such classics as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with original music from Nintendo composers, including Koji Kondo, and recalling moments of Link conquering dungeons and running through forests. Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.
The new European dates – the first time this version of the show has been seen in these cities – are:
