It's entirely plausible that we'll see new cities added to the docket if this symphony is as successful as others have been in the past.

The press release dishes some information about the strange title of the symphony. Here's that bit, verbatim.

The name Symphony of the Goddesses refers not only to the concert program but also to the four-movement symphony recounting the classic storylines from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of TimeThe Legend of Zelda: The Wind WakerThe Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The performance also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from The Legend of Zelda: Link's AwakeningThe Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Concerts will be performed by full orchestra and choir in world-class venues throughout the world.

Pretty cool. I still think the Wind Waker medley from this symphony is simply amazing. It gives me nerd goosebumps every time I hear it.

Will you be checking out this new symphony if it makes it to a city near you?
