Video Games Live Concert: Oct. 25 Beacon Theatre

Way back over the summer I saw a commercial for Video Games Live, and it stuck in my head. VGL is a live concert with music from tons of your favorite video games played by a full orchestra and professional musicians, but that's not all. The music is accompanied by video game footage on a ginormous screen. Throughout the show interactive events like a Guitar Hero challenge and Frogger take place, making the audience part of the show.

The concert series is the brainchild of video game composers Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall.

This years' concert is sure to be amazing. After last years' sold out immediately, VGL decided to do a special pre-sale for the upcoming October 25 concert. The website says tickets are still available, so I encourage all gamers to take a look, you might just learn something about good music.

"This year's show will feature music from classics like

  • "Mario Bros."
  • "The Legend of Zelda"
  • "Final Fantasy"
  • "Metal Gear"
  • "Sonic the Hedgehog"
  • "World of Warcraft"

franchises; as well as from upcoming installments of "Halo" and "Diablo." " -Marc Graser

That sounds pretty cool, except where was it being held and can you post a link to more info on it? It sounds like it's worth checking out! There's this group of people called the ZREO Team who re-orchestrate Zelda music and u can download it for free.
