'Elden Ring' Plans Jazz Music Streaming Event In December, Tickets Available

by Rainier on Oct. 17, 2022 @ 3:01 p.m. PDT

Unparalleled adventure awaits in Elden Ring, an epic fantasy action/RPG title created by Dark Souls' Hidetaka Miyazaki, and George R.R. Martin.

Dive into a thrilling adventure and decide the fate of a vast world filled with intrigue and power. Fight against formidable enemies with FromSoftware’s signature melee combat and discover a wide range of inventive strategies made possible by the open-ended Action-RPG gameplay of Elden Ring.

Transported to ages long ago, you will relive the Shattering, a war that brought darkness to the Lands Between, initiated by demigods’ hunger for power. You’ll fight alongside General Radahn and Malenia the Severed, but even these two undefeatable warriors couldn’t reunite a world so badly broken. There is only one hope left: the hope that a new Elden Lord will rise and lift the veil of shadows that has fallen over Marika’s domain.

A new world filled with fantastic tales and lore has been woven by Hidetaka Miyazaki – creator of the influential and critically acclaimed Dark Souls video game series; and George R.R. Martin – author of The New York Times best-selling fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Players will embark on a journey across a meticulously handcrafted world dripping in blood and deception brought upon by a variety of characters with their own unique motivations for helping or hindering the player’s progress, adversaries with profound backgrounds, and fearsome creatures. Throughout their adventures, players will choose the fate of this cursed land by unraveling its secrets and myths.

Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. will present a very special Jazz music streaming event – broadcast live from Hollywood and featuring Grammy Award-winning musician Kenny Garrett in collaboration with up-and-coming talent Takuya Kuroda – on December 3, 2022. The “Elden Ring™: A Night in the Lands Between” music event will be held at Hollywood, California’s famed Bourbon Room and available via livestream to viewers in the U.S. Select songs from Elden Ring, including recognizable melodies from the game’s soundtrack, will be performed live in Jazz format – with improvisation – by a group of musicians led by Jazz legend Kenny Garrett on Alto Sax and new generation player Takuya Kuroda on trumpet. 

Two shows will be presented on December 3rd at 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Pacific Time, with performances which will translate the Elden Ring soundtrack into Jazz for the first time ever. Tickets to the physical event and livestream are available in different tiers, with VIP packages that include collectible items, the Elden Ring digital soundtrack, and access to the post-show VOD. For information and to purchase tickets starting today, please visit the official website

“We want to celebrate the incredible success of Elden Ring by presenting this truly unprecedented live and livestreamed Jazz concert, giving fans a different way to immerse in the rich engaging world that has dominated their gaming days and nights this past year,” said Wataru Nakasuji, Sr. Director Esports & Live Entertainment, Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “While video game soundtracks have seen variations as symphonic music and even Rock n’ Roll, our ‘A Night in the Lands Between’ Jazz event is exploring a wonderfully different treatment of the Elden Ring soundtrack. Jazz master Kenny Garrett and new generation player Takuya Kuroda are both truly world-class musicians, respected and renowned by lovers of Jazz around the world, and they are now lending their different talents to give birth to a new creative way to meld music and video games.” 

"If I can pick one word to describe this project, it's epic," said Takuya Kuroda. "I think that's really the important part, it's just the experience of watching the performance by us, and [saying] just like 'wow this is stunning', and then 'wow this is really the music for Elden Ring."

"I'm always thinking about that we take the audience on a journey," said Kenny Garrett. "It's not going to be what you thought it was."

Featuring a vast and seamless landscape with natural weather and time-of-day progression, players will become fully immersed in the world of Elden Ring as they begin their journey and choose on their own path. Traverse on foot or horseback, alone or online with friends across grassy plains, suffocating swamps and lush forests. Ascend spiraling mountains, enter breathtaking castles, and witness other sites of grandeur on a scale never seen before in a FromSoftware title. Elden Ring’s role-playing and customization options allow players to define their own unique playstyle. Experimentation is encouraged with a wide variety of weapons, magical abilities and skills found throughout the world; enticing players to follow previously unexplored progression paths.

Elden Ring gives players the opportunity to chart their own path through its world. Choose to run headlong into fierce battles against daunting foes or take advantage of the game’s stealth and combat systems to gain the upper hand. It is up to the player to decide how to handle the many challenges that lay before them.

Elden Ring is available to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam), it supports the Smart Delivery on Xbox consoles as well as a Free Upgrade to PS5 for players who purchase the PS4 version.
