Video Games Live 1st November 2018- Manchester O2 Ritz Buy Tickets Video Games Live (VGL) takes the gaming experience light years beyond with a “captivating, proudly bombastic show” (The New York Times) that combines video game music masterfully performed by a full symphony band and with the explosive energy of a rock concert. The Number One gaming concert in the world returns to the UK in 2018 with a Halloween Horror Game Special. The ultimate international musical tour will visit London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester throughout October and November to perform some of your favourite spooky video game scores and classic tracks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXEw15Wxi3s VGL was created by industry legend, composer Tommy Tallarico. The multimedia concert introduces new audiences—families, video game enthusiasts and non-gamers—to the symphonic experience with exclusive video footage and music arrangements, synchronized lighting, well-known Internet solo performers, electronic percussion, live action and interactive segments. The “ingenious and fantastic” (Los Angeles Times) show spotlights the music that enhances the most gripping video game moments—rescuing the princess, winning the boss fight, saving the galaxy from aliens or defeating the undead—with performances from recent blockbusters and iconic classics. There are Pre Show Events and a Post Show Meet-n-Greet open to all ticket holders. Pre-Show activities include a Guitar Hero competition, costume contest and prize give-a-ways. The Post-Show activities include meet and greet opportunities with industry designers/creators, composers/sound designers, voice actors, performers and more special guests.
