I really wish I lived in Los Angeles, San Diego or Indianapolis, because there’s an incredibly nifty concert going to stop by there– Video Games Live: Bonus Round, a video game concert!!
For all the hardcore gamers out there, I regret that I must inform you that there will be no playing of video games at the concert…but you do get to sit back, take a break from button mashing or strategizing, and let various tracks from highly acclaimed video game series, such as Shadow of the Colossus, Uncharted II, Silent Hill, Assassin’s Creed II, Mega Man, Chrono Trigger/Cross, Zelda, Warcraft II, Halo, Final Fantasy, Mario and, as the advertisement reads, many more!
Music lovers are also in for a treat, as well as anyone who can appreciate a good show. I’m not trained in the art of advertising, so I’m just going to let the original post do the sales pitch for me. The concert will feature “a full symphony & choir combined with 3 massive synchronized video screens, special fx, state-of-the-art interactive lighting, stage show production and interactive elements with the crowd!”
Special guests have also been confirmed to make an appearance, such as the designer and composer of Silent Hill, Akira Yamaoka, as well as Norihiko Hibino, the composer for the Metal Gear Solid series, who is slated to preformSnake Eater, a song from the third installment, on saxophone with the symphony.
Tickets can be purchased here starting at $24.50 a ticket! Seriously, if you love video games and you love music (and you happen to be around), it sounds like a great way to spend your evening!
Stops include the LA’s Nokia Live at 8:00 p.m. on June 17, San Diego Civic Theatre (Where else? In San Diego!) at 8:00 P.M. on July 24 and the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis at 7:30 P.M. on August 7.
