I mean I love that Im going to be at the concert in London, but I have 45 minutes alone with mr. Aonuma and mr. Kondo to ask anything I want. *gulp*

45 minutes of timeline explanation I hope.

This must've been sublime.

Oh dear, looks like my prediction of London riots is coming true...

Well I hope everyone going enjoys it. Was a little too much for me so I'll just enjoy the free CD with SS.
 
Moz La Punk said:
haha, perhaps I should ask about that first, just to break the ice.

any other important questions? of course about the music, since mr. Kondo will be there...
Actually I would avoid totally the timeline chitchat.
And I wouldn't know what to ask to Kondo, I don't know him and I don't remember reading an interview to the guy.

Just me and mclem so far for a GAF meetup before or after the show in London.

Anyone else interested?
I'm not sure what I'm doing yet. I'm either staying overnight - in which case yes - or driving straight back to Bath after the concert. I'll keep tabs on the thread to see what you guys decide to do...

if there's one track I wish they'd be doing at this its the End Credits version of the Zelda theme from A Link to the Past. It's the most beautiful build up to the main theme, and the best version of the main theme imo.

Looking at the tracklist from Tokyo, I'm sure I'll love it anyway

I guess how he comes up with music, why he thinks Zelda-music is so iconic and epic, why it makes for the perfect music to play with an orchestra, stuff like that.

Where and when is the London meetup? Me and a friend are going to go to the Tuesday showing so if any GAFfers are going to be there it would be cool to see.

I'll be wearing a deep blue DinoGAF t-shirt and probably be on my Aqua Blue 3DS through the whole event, so I ought to be easy to spot. :D
 
I will be extremely hairy.

I'm going to have to head back that night anyway, although buses to Oxford do run late so I've got quite a bit of leeway (as long as the tube isn't shut!)

I need to not get distracted by the fact that it's an ideal time to play a load of Four Swords. There's a concert going on!

If there's an intermission at all, I can imagine this is exactly what people will do!

It'll doubtless be great for streetpass!

Pretty sure it's 7, I've got had quite a few streetpasses and not encountered any more than those. That said, it's been implied some new ones should appear in the next firmware, so presumably we'll have a bit more to work with at the actual time.
 
I'm not sure what I'm wearing, but it won't be a GAF t-shirt. I don't think I have anything that would even stand out (my roommate has the same Zelda sports jacket, all my Zelda shirts are widely available and I've seen them everywhere). You can probably count on me wearing my Texas Longhorn baseball hat at the very least. Hopefully I'll get to chat with a lot of other Zelda fans.

I'm considering bringing the holy grail because I'm holding out some hope Koizumi shows up. And if Kondo shows up, I hope I get a chance to ask him about the Fire Temple in OoT so maybe that mystery can be put to rest.

FYI, the Holy Grail:
 
Definitely less than 15 total people dressed up in tuxes and suits. I think it's appropriate to wear casual and related wear, though. My sister's recording some of the pieces on her iPhone, but we're seated near the back. Will upload some~ intermission's about done!

I haven't been keeping up, packed house?

This. When I go, I usually look for a nice blouse, dress shirt, light sweater or vest coupled with a skirt or dress pants + dress shoes/low heels/nice boots. Er, for guys, you could try dress shirts, golf shirts (ie: something with a collar) vests and/or blazers coupled with dress pants / nice khakis + dress shoes.

Symphonies are generally more suited for semi-casual wear. If this came to Toronto, I'd use it as an excuse to buy something new, lol.

But since this concert is more for Zelda fans, I guess the dress code is more lax.

they paid for the tickets and it's for game music and everybody is a nerd. it doesn't matter one fucking iota what they come in with as long as they're covered. no, really. no. really.

Yeah, it was a full house except for the few scattered empty seats. The Pantages theatre was a relatively small venue, IMO. The stage that the musicians were on was kinda tiny. I'm not qualified to critique symphonies, but I feel like the overall night was a B/B+. The orchestra didn't seem perfectly in sync during a few parts, and some of the movements/medleys didn't have enough oomph to get me emotional. I was sitting near the back center of the theater, however, so that might've threw me off. Gotta make the two hour drive back to San Diego now. Will upload a couple select pieces tonight if I don't knock out!
 
Just got out of the venue, waiting while my lady grabs her friend to join us for a late dinner.

Great Fucking show for a huge Zelda fan like me, but god if it wasn't a little embarassing with how some of the crowd reacted to some stuff, yelling out shit in the middle of the performance. More later.
