This sounded kind of cool.

Video Game scores performed by full orchestra and choir

The first major U.S. video game music concert tour is finally here! Think music concert, theatrical stage show, and interactive video game all wrapped into one!

Video Games Live will feature the best music and video clips from the most popular games from the beginning of video gaming to the present. Games include:

Mario™, Zelda®, Halo®, Metal Gear Solid®, Warcraft®, Myst®, Final Fantasy®, Castlevania®, Medal of Honor™, Sonic™, Tron, Tomb Raider®, Advent Rising, Headhunter, Beyond Good & Evil™, Splinter Cell®, Ghost Recon™, Rainbow Six®, EverQuest® II and a special retro arcade segment that goes from Pong® to Donkey Kong®!

It will be a stellar event, which includes performances of the music, video and specially designed laser and light sequences showcasing over 50 different games in a wide variety of styles. Also included of course, is a special segment focusing on retro arcade classics!

I just got back from this, at Hollywood bowl. It was really cool, the video game piantist (formally known as blindfolded piantist) guest starred and played a final fantasy song.

Aside from the stupid annoying kids that couldn't be a day over 15 sitting everywhere, saying "oh wow that is old school" over and over again, as if they somehow partook in what brings our generation nostalgia, simply because it seems to be the "in" thing now, it was an enjoyable experience. Damn noobs.

Sounds like a cool concert, and a good mix of old and new, western and japanese games.

Postscript to Tanshin's post: I want to punch the shit out any goddamn kid wearing those "NES Controller Roots" T-shirts who is under 20. You weren't even cognisant enough to play games till we were well into the 16-bit era, you fucking douchebags. bash.gif

I see they have a wide range of selections in terms of time.

You mean the ones with the NES controller that say "back in the day"? I have one of those, but I'm 24 so I have the right.
