Video Games Live

Video Games Live

This interactive event combines the energy of a rock concert with the power of a symphonic performance, featuring music from the most popular video games of all time and special guests including composers Marty O’Donnell (Halo), Kinuyo Yamashita (Castlevania), Russell Brower (World of Warcraft), and musician-arranger Laura Intravia (Pokemon: Symphonic Evolutions).

The new, 2017 edition of Video Games Live will feature music from Final Fantasy, Warcraft, Overwatch, Pokemon, Halo, Mass Effect, Mega Man, Kingdom Hearts, League of Legends, Uncharted, Monkey Island, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid, and a whole lot more, including retro arcade games like Tetris and Asteroids.

Created and hosted by game industry superstar Tommy Tallarico, Video Games Live includes a full symphony, a choir and accomplished soloists, all accompanied by state-of-the-art synchronized video and lighting effects, electronic percussion, live action, and unique interactive segments.  This is an explosive, one-of-a-kind event for all ages – gamers and non-gamers alike – and an ideal way to introduce new audiences to the power of symphonic music. “Video Games Live is ingenious and fantastic,” raves The Los Angeles Times. “It’s a feast for the eyes and the ears,” says The Seattle Times.
