The Legend of Zelda Concert 2018 will be held at the Bunkamura Orchard Hall, Tokyo, on the 14th of December. There are tons of reason why you cannot be live there, from reasons like the tickets being sold out, to living abroad, however, there if there’s a will, there’s a way for you to be in all the action.
NicoNico is live streaming the concert directly from Bunkamura Orchard Hall, and everyone is invited to join in, sort of.
For Fans Abroad
If you wish to watch The Legend of Zelda Concert 2018, you’ll need to have an existing VPN plan that can change your IP address to that of a Japanese one. This is because NicoNico has region locked the stream to Japan only.
Purchasing The Live Stream Tickets
Yes, you’ve heard it right. You will have to purchase a live stream ticket from NicoNico. Tickets cost ¥2,500 (US$22), or if you’re a premium NicoNico member, tickets will only cost you ¥1860 (US$17). Head on down to NicoNico here.
After you have purchased the tickets, you can head on to NicoNico on 14th December 2018 at 19:00hrs JPT to join the rest of the Bunkamura Orchard Hall crowd for some great music.
Addition Live-Stream Benefits
While you will miss out on the concert atmosphere and are limited to how good your speakers are, there are some benefits of live-streaming. The good thing is that you will be able to rewatch the concert again and again, as many time as you like, until 14 January 2019 at 23:59hrs. That is a whole month of additional viewing.
So if you’re stuck somewhere and can’t make it on 14 December 2018, you can view it after the live stream.
