Since Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses first debuted, it seems as though more video games are opting in for the orchestral experience. The most recent announcement comes from Konami with the Metal Gear in Concert series. There promises to be more than 70 musicians on stage performing while being accompanied by HD footage on a giant screen.
Beloved by millions of fans, the video game series has sold more than 50 million units worldwide over the 30 years since its release. A particular breakout success since the “Metal Gear Solid” instalment that was released on PlayStation in 1998, the series’ popularity continued to soar up to the release of the fifth main episode “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” on PlayStation IV in 2015, the top-selling METAL GEAR game of all time.-via Press Release
The live concert promises more than just tunes from the MGS franchise. Music will include background tracks like “Main Theme” and “Encounter.” Live vocalist Donna Burke will also be performing tracks like “The Best is Yet to Come” and “Snake Eater.”
The Metal Gear in Concert tour will hit various locations in the US, Japan, and Europe. Tickets will hit pre-sale starting March 17, 2018, with the remainder of the tickets becoming available on Ticketfly for Los Angeles and New York. For those looking for the Paris show, click here.
