Well, you can relive part of your childhood — in higher-quality sound – when the global tour of The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses returns to Houston tomorrow night (Nov. 18, 2016) at the Revention Music Center.

The concert features nearly 30 years of music from the video game franchise. Amy Andersson, the music director for the world tour, spoke with Maggie Martin back in October 2015, the last time the concert rolled through Houston.
