Symphony of the Goddesses is a concert series featuring symphonic music from The Legend of Zelda series. From the obvious NES original’s “Overworld Theme” to the latest songs from Skyward Sword. The concerts are being held across the United States, well into 2016.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has already featured a couple gaming celebrities, including Pewdiepie and No Man’s Sky’s Sean Murray from Hello Games. Featuring The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses on the program gives more credence to Stephen Colbert’s acceptance of video games as a major part of mainstream and popular culture, unlike other contemporary late-night talkshow hosts like Jimmy Kimmel.
