Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am for another London Symphony Orchestra video games concert on July 13th 2014.
Titled Symphonic Legends London, the concert will focus on the music from gaming giant Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series.
Featuring new musical extracts arranged by long-time video game music arrangers Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo, the concerts will include music from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
There will also be a world premiere of a new overture for the Skyward Sword game in the Legend of Zelda series.
The LSO's principal flautist Gareth Davies commented: "Working on our first video game concert earlier this year was a fantastically exciting experience."
He added: "The fans who attended the Final Symphony concert were one of the most attentive audiences I’ve ever played for and it is a delight to be playing Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo’s superb arrangements again."
The concert comes on the back of last year's phenomenally successful Finally Symphony concert, which featured the music of the Final Fantasy video games.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10am via the Symphonic Legends website.
