Bethesda and War Child UK team up for Fallout-focused November charity concert

Bethesda is teaming up with charity War Child to put on the somewhat lengthily-named ‘War Child UK Presents Bethesda Game Studios in Concert’ later this year. The event will feature music primarily from the Fallout series, including music from Fallout 76, just a couple of weeks before its release.

The concert will be held at the London Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith on Saturday, 3rd November, and tickets go on sale from tomorrow, starting at £45. All proceeds from ticket sales for the show will go to the charity.

Bethesda commented that it “is excited to be working with War Child UK on the concert, an organisation that strives for a world where children’s lives are no longer torn apart by war.”

Inon Zur, the Fallout composer will be attending the event and there will be meet-and-greet tickets available, along with exclusive merchandise and even a page from the score signed by him.

The involvement of the composer is well-considered, after the last concert Bethesda put on was somewhat tarnished by Skyrim composer Jeremy Soule speaking out against the event, saying: "For the record, this concert has nothing to do with me, nor are they are using any of my original scores. They had to transcribe whatever notation they are performing by ear from the recordings. This is a flawed process as transcriptions are always fraught with errors.”

Soule’s music will again feature at this concert, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim also on the playlist. We’ve reached out to Soule for comment but haven’t yet received any confirmation of his involvement.
