Tokyo, Japan, November 29th, 2023 - SOHO Live, the Tokyo-based live music company specializing in creating and presenting live concerts of the most memorable video game and anime music, can today reveal that a slate of new Stardew Valley: Festival of Seasons tour dates have been added due to popular demand.

The new dates include additional stops across Europe, Asia, North America, and Oceania, bringing the tour to a total of 13 countries. New markets include Paris, Milan, Manchester, Tokyo, Auckland, San Francisco, and many more, taking the tour to over 40 nights of gaming musical magic, making it the largest dedicated concert tour for an independent video game IP. 

Stardew Valley Festival of Seasons transforms music from the beloved game through a chamber orchestra featuring top talent from the local music scene at every stop of the tour. 

The show is segmented into sections, each representing one of the four seasons. In-game music from Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter will take centre stage, with other memorable themes from the game's many locations, festivals, and villagers sprinkled throughout. The tour will also feature new exclusive Stardew Valley merchandise that will only be available at the concerts.

Fans can enjoy songs such as Dance of the Moonlight Jellies, and Stardew Valley Overture, as well as a haystack full of surprises. Each piece has been carefully curated by Stardew creator ConcernedApe aka Eric Barone, with arrangements led by an expert lineup of conductors, including rising star Thanapol Setabrahmana and the world-renowned Sarah-Grace Williams.

Eric Barone, Stardew Valley’s creator and composer, said: 

“It's been amazing to see the reaction to the announcement of the Festival of Seasons. This is a testament to the amazing passion of the Stardew community, and I’m delighted that more people can now experience this music as a live orchestral performance”.

Sarah-Grace Williams, Artistic Director & Chief Conductor at The Metropolitan Orchestra, said: 

“I am so excited to bring to life the incredible music of Stardew Valley to its fans, with musicians of The Metropolitan Orchestra. We can’t wait to share Eric’s handpicked selections from the game and take the audience on a beautiful journey through stunning new Chamber Orchestra arrangements, which are a perfect tribute to the game's indie roots. I am positive that both fans of video game music and classical music aficionados will be equally captivated and delighted by this very special concert.”

Thanapol Setabrahmana, Assistant Music Director of the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra and creator of the arrangements for this tour, said:

“Video game music is very special, and nothing beats the sensation of hearing the music in your favorite games being performed by a live ensemble. It’s been an honor to work on the arrangements for these performances, a lot of care and attention has been put into ensuring these arrangements delight fans both old and new to the series.”
