The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony

Last night I arrived at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo with my bro Xavier Perez ready to see a musical masterpiece. Fans from all around Europe showed up. I picked up quite a number of StreetPass hits on my 3DS, Miis from Spain, Netherlands and wherever else. We saw a few cosplayers dressed up as Link, Zelda, Sheik etc. Saw someone with a Keaton mask (where is my local Happy Mask Shop?) and even a Minish cap.

The lobby was packed. People were playing Skyward Sword, I think they also had past Zelda titles there too. Paid £25 for a t-shirt (got bumped but how often do Nintendo do events like this?). Posters were £20, that was a bit much don’t you think? While upstairs, we recognised that chap from Xbox Live – MrPointyHead (I think that’s his name). What the hell was he doing there? He got caught!

We had some best seats as well. The concert was amazing. They played quite a few of my favourite pieces. We were surprised to see Zelda Williams (Robin Williams daughter) be the special guest host. She did a good job of winning the fans over. But the real surprise was when legend himself Koji Kondo came out and performed a piano solo. It was unbelievable. It was definitely the best concert/event I have ever been to. I loved it. Can’t wait to get the soundtrack with Skyward Sword.
