lFor the past 7 years, the Video Games Live concert tour has been entertaining audiences in major cities around the world. But if you lived in a smaller town, you were out of luck. Well, not any more!
"We continually receive thousands of e-mails a year from families and gamers who would love to experience our show, but find it hard to travel to major cities and have to deal with travel expenses, overnight stays, getting the kids out of school, etc. and we would like to try to accommodate as many people as possible to share in the experience," says Video Games Live Creator/Executive Producer and game composer Tommy Tallarico. "Our goal from the beginning has always been to show the world how culturally significant and artistic video games have become. I wanted to create a show for everyone whether you're a gamer or not. We always keep our ticket prices as low as possible so everyone can come out and experience what we have to offer... in some locations this year due to certain sponsorships the ticket prices are as low as $5 each!"
They're promising the exact same show as in the bigger venues, just with smaller stages and screens. But to help planning the smaller performances, Video Games Live is asking fans to visit their website and tell them where you live and what you'd like to hear so they can use the top 10 cities to add to the 2012/2013 tour.
The tour starts on March 21 with a performance in London, ON before moving to St. Charles, IL on March 23 and Red Bank, NJ on April 4. Two shows in Bethesda, MD on April 7 follow, and then El Dorado, AR on April 14. After that, it's up to you!
