News event 30 Years of Kirby: An Internet-Streamed Concert for Fans Outside Japan
Nintendo has just released new information about the concert that will be given in Tokyo for Kirby’s 30th birthday. Announced last March, the event promises many nostalgic thrills and the most interested were waiting to find out more! The latter can have a broad smile: the concert will be broadcast live!
An event broadcast on the Internet
It’s not easy to attend a concert in Japan, especially when you know that the country’s borders are closed to tourists. For the thirtieth anniversary of Kirby’s birth, Nintendo is going to organize a big concert at the Tokyo Garden Theater. This will take place on August 11 and should welcome many fans from all over the archipelago. But Nintendo has thought of Western fans and has just announced that it will be possible to watch the event in streaming on YouTube. For France, you can therefore go on this linkfrom 11 a.m., to enjoy the concert (entirely in Japanese, no translation)!
The greatest pieces
We can thus expect the greatest pieces of the series which, we recall, won a Grammy Awards at the 64th ceremony last spring. Arrangers Charlie Rosen and Jake Silverman won the prize with a superb big band arrangement of Meta Knight’s Revenge (from Kirby’s Fun Pak). Spectators on site or on the Internet will also be able to discover original medleys taken from the old titles of the saga. And for all those who cannot be present that day, Nintendo has specified that the streaming will be archived to be rebroadcast later.
