Video Games Live coming to DVD and CD soon!
That is the announcement trailer for Video Games Live on DVD and CD. Before I post the press release, I would just like to mention (though I did before) that I MIGHT be going to Video Games Live either on June 29th or 30th. It's up to my parents to decide. My mom says yes, my dad says no, and the final decision will probably be made by Saturday because I need to buy tickets if I'm going. Anyways, here is the press release:
Los Angeles, CA - Video Games Live, The #1 video game touring concert in the world, announced today that they will be releasing a DVD & CD from their award-winning sold out performances recorded in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil last year.
“Since we started Video Games Live over 5 years ago we’ve always received at least a few e-mails and letters each week asking if and when a
DVD and CD would be available,” said Tommy Tallarico, co-creator of Video Games Live and longtime video game composer. “We’re finally proud to announce the first ever live game concert DVD and CD available in the U.S. and throughout the world.” Co-creator Jack Wall added “The shows in Brazil were absolutely amazing. The crowds were unbelievable and the energy level was second to none.”
Recently, Video Games Live was the recipient of the “Special Breakthrough Achievement Award” at the 3rd Annual Gameworld Awards for their performances in Brazil last November.
The Brazilian shows were sponsored by the biggest corporations in all of Latin America including oil company Petrobras as well as UOL, the principle Latin American internet online provider. Intel, the world’s largest semiconductor company were the title sponsors along with media partner Futuro Publishing which helped to make the initial groundbreaking tour a national success. Adding to the already powerful line-up of supporters were the Brazilian Government and the Ministry of Culture, whose commitment to the Video Games Live project speaks volumes for VGL’s relevance, significance and future presence in Brazil.
The highly prestigious Petrobras Sinfônica Orchestra performed in some of the highest regarded venues in all of Brazil.
Video Games Live is currently planning its return tour to Brazil for September, 2007. Exact DVD & CD release dates, pricing and ordering to be announced in August.
