Heroes: A Video Game Symphony


The highly acclaimed video game music concert “Heroes: A Video Game Symphony” comes to the iconic Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, Saturday, July 6. The special show also features a guest appearance by legendary and award-winning composer Inon Zur, whose music from the PlayStation 5 exclusive “Rise of the Rōnin” will have a debut performance at the July 6 concert. “Rise of the Rōnin” was released in March 2024 and has already garnered critical acclaim and become one of the gaming industry’s best-selling new titles.


In the video game and musical score genres, few composers have garnered as much recognition as Zur. Renowned for his emotionally dynamic original music scores for blockbuster video game franchises such as “Fallout,” “Dragon Age,” “Prince of Persia,” and “The Elder Scrolls,” Emmy award-winner and three-time British Academy nominated composer Zur has created sonic landscapes that have captured the minds of gamers across the planet. Additionally, the July 6 Pantages show will feature the first ever pubic performance of Zur’s music from “Rise of the Rōnin”, the epic open-world action role playing game set in late 19th century Japan during the final years of the Edo period.


Jason Michael Paul – the producer and creator of the first stateside FINAL FANTASY concerts, The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary concerts, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concerts, and Founder of JMP Entertainment – envisioned the “Heroes” experience to take audience members on a heroes journey, as set forth by Joseph Campbell's monomyth – a narrative framework that can be seen in many of the games, film, and books throughout history. Everyone’s story is the story of a hero, told through the amazing worlds of other heroes, in an unforgettable experience that is not to be missed.


“We are beyond thrilled to perform at the iconic Pantages,” notes Paul. “And to have Inon Zur with us for a special appearance – this will be an unforgettable night!”


The music featured in the “Heroes” concert will pay homage to some of the gaming industry’s most iconic titles, including “World of Warcraft”, “Diablo”, “FINAL FANTASY”, “Portal 2”, “BioShock”, “Guild Wars 2”, “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion”, “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim”, “Fallout 4”, “Starfield”, “Castlevania”, “Metal Gear Solid”, “Halo”, “Mass Effect”, “Dear Esther”, “God of War”, “Dragon Age”, “Shadow of the Colossus”, and more.


Zur notes, “Jason Michael Paul has created something truly special for audiences around the world; I am honored and excited to be a part of this incredible concert series.”
