Video Games Live announces first WORLD TOUR including the return to the Hollywood Bowl & additional U.S. dates!!!
Starting on March 24th, 2006 in San Jose, California, Video Games Live will become the first video game concert to tour the world! And what better place to start than the “official birthplace” of video games… Silicon Valley! Never before has a video game concert been performed in the place “where it all started”. And to accent the occasion even more we are holding the show as the closing ceremony to the Game Developers Conference (GDC). GDC attracts over 12,000 of the greatest video game creators, designers, artists and composers from all over the world who gather together to share ideas, knowledge and insight with one another to help forward the industry to greater heights.
But that is only the beginning. After the major success of the debut performance in 2005, Video Games Live returns to the Hollywood Bowl with a new and updated show! This time around the prestigious Hollywood Bowl Orchestra will be performing all of the most popular and loved video game music of all time on the most famous stage in the world. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 15th for the September 21st performance. The debut performance took place on July 6th, 2005 at the Hollywood Bowl featuring the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. Over 11,000 audience members participated in the biggest video game concert in history. This years show features new segments and even more games to ensure yet another record-breaking event. Come and be a part of history in the making.
Video Games Live will also be the first to bring video game music to the fine state of Texas. On July 14, 2006 the Houston Symphony will be performing Video Games Live at Jones Hall. Tickets on sale soon. Aside from traveling the U.S., VGL is also planning performances in places such as Canada, Japan, Australia, South America (Brazil), Korea, Hong Kong, Russia, China, France, England & Italy!
