Video Games Live Announces E3 Lineup
From the beginning Video Games Live has always been an interactive show and this year that interactivity is taken to a new level. Aside from randomly chosen audience members appearing on stage to play a game while the orchestra provides (and changes) the soundtrack on-the-fly, Video Games Live will now incorporate members of the audience to help chose the setlist during the show by texting and/or using their Smart Phones. A real-time meter will show which games are leading during the show and the most popular choice will be the one performed. Other interactive elements will include live Skype appearances and interviews with game industry legends and photographs of the audience taken during the performance and posted on the Video Games Live Facebook page for tagging. The first 50 people to tag themselves during the show will receive a free copy of “Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.”
Audience members for this performance will be a part of gaming history! Since its creation in 2002, the award winning Video Games Live continues to break attendance records around the world, and after 10 years in business and hundreds of shows, yet another prestigious award and record will be bestowed on stage with an induction and certificate ceremony from Guinness World Records for the most video game concerts ever performed. Twin Galaxy founder Walter Day will be presenting a special trading card to commemorate this record breaking show with all audience members receiving a free copy of the card. Pac-Man World Record Holder and crowned Video Game Player of the Century, Billy Mitchell (known for his role in the movie King of Kong) will also be present to unveil his limited edition Video Games Live hot sauce.
Incredible door prize give-a-ways from Samsung, AMD & Intel (including laptops, hard-drives, media devices, software and much more) will be awarded on stage during the show to lucky winners (any ticket holder will be able to enter). The ever popular pre-show costume contest will be in full effect as each costumed member will be brought on stage as the audience decides the winner by volume of applause.
“Since starting VGL in 2002, this particular show is turning out to be one of our most exciting and spectacular shows ever!” stated industry veteran and Video Games Live Creator/Executive Producer Tommy Tallarico. “There really is something for everyone in this show no matter what era or genre of gaming you’re into. Being partnered with E3 and the ESA allows us to bring the entire industry together for a complete celebration of the gaming world. If ever there was a Video Games Live to attend, this is the one!”
