Any of you DC folks interested in attending the Video Games Live concert on Saturday November 19, 2005? Granted it's super geeky, but it should be a fun event. Tickets run $20 - $55.

What is Video Games Live?
The first major U.S. video game music concert tour is finally here! Think music concert, theatrical stage show, and interactive video game all wrapped into one!

Video Games Live will feature the best music and video clips from the most popular games from the beginning of video gaming to the present. Games include:

Mario™, Zelda®, Halo®, Metal Gear Solid®, Warcraft®, Myst®, Final Fantasy®, Castlevania®, Medal of Honor™, Sonic™, Tron, Tomb Raider®, Advent Rising, Headhunter, Beyond Good & Evil™, Splinter Cell®, Ghost Recon™, Rainbow Six®, EverQuest® II and a special retro Classic Arcade Medley featuring over 20+ games from Pong® to Donkey Kong® including such classics as Dragon's Lair, Tetris, Frogger, Gauntlet, Space Invaders & Outrun!

It will be a stellar event, which includes performances of the music, video and specially designed laser and light sequences showcasing over 50 different games in a wide variety of styles. Also included of course, is a special segment focusing on retro arcade classics!

This touring event will include a retrospective segment from the beginning of the video game era up to the present, several segments with game footage on three giant video screens, handheld cameras showing orchestra, and character close-ups. There will also be an interactive segment where selected audience members will actually play a game live onstage while the orchestra plays the music.

As mentioned on DPB: Yes. Very much so. I also would like to request seating with whatever group ends up going.

It sounds interesting, but I don't know yet. Starting to get those random fall business trips again. Why do the ticket prices vary? Quality of seating?

The event's at DAR Constitution Hall, so it has a very nice venue. I'd presume that it's for seating. We can probably buy tickets closer to the actual time of the event though.

Fred claims that he's coming down for it, you should see if you can piggyback off of him.

I saw Video Games Live! in LA when it played at the hollywood bowl- definately worth checking out! There's something just -awesome- about watching the LA Philharmonic (or whoever will be performing) play the theme to Super Mario Brothers.... And, they have a vintage arcade gallery before the show...

So, I highly recommend it!!! : ) you'll have a blast!
