Video Games Live is an immersive touring extravaganza that brings to life popular video game soundtracks.
Making its debut in 2005 Video Games Live has been growing in reputation ever since. The show has taken in an impressive number of dates since it’s inception and looks to continue with shows in the U.S, China and across mainland Europe as well as visiting our shores in England with visits to Manchester and London in March.
Creating an immersive experience the show takes popular video game music which is performed by a full orchestra and choirs in a perfect blend of modern and traditional culture. The masterminds behind Video Games Live describe the event as: ‘the power & emotion of a symphony orchestra mixed with the excitement and energy of a rock concert and the technology and interactivity of a video game all completely synchronized to amazing cutting edge video screen visuals, state-of-the-art lighting and special on-stage interactive segments with the audience.’
Tickets are now available for the UK shows. The first is on the 19th of March (Manchester Albert Hall) with two London shows the following day on the 20th (London Troxy Matinee and Evening Event)
