Video Games Live, the amazing orchestral performance which marries music from games with a live concert performance from a full orchestra and choir is coming back to Scotland, for the first time in over five years.
If you’ve not seen Video Games Live before, this could be your chance. Created by Tommy Talarico and Jack Wall, the concert celebrates the soundtracks of the world’s greatest games. From the earliest days of arcade gaming, to the latest triple A titles, massive MMOs and beyond.
The VGL team have been to Scotland twice before. The performed a sell out concert in Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall in 2008, followed by an appearance at Dundee’s Caird Hall as part of the first ever North East of North digital arts festival in 2009.
Now the global games tour is returning to Scotland, for one night only.
The date in question in March 27th 2015 (it’s a Friday!) and the venue is once again Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall. Tickets start at £38.50 (£35.00 concession), although for the truly dedicated, there’s a VIP package which features exclusive seats, backstage access, priority entry to the after show meet and greet, plus all manner of VGL goodies for a mere £141.90.
If you’ve not been lucky enough to see Video Games Live before now, it’s truly an experience. With games audio and music more popular than ever, it’s very likely to be a sell out. We’d recommend it highly.
And whether you’ve seen the concerts or not, you definitely need to check out the Video Games Live YouTube channel…
See you in Glasgow.
