Do you remember the good ol' times when you're so excited to go the next level and playing your thumbs off at Video Games, having your fingers ramming the Computer keyboards killing that monster or in full concentration of your Nintendo Gameboy?
I know I do 🙂
In all honesty, I wasn't so much of a girly-girl when I was growing up during my childhood/teenage years.
You wouldn't see me playing house or barbie dolls at all. I would be engrossed in my huge maximus brick Gameboy (hey that was in 1999! Don't judge me!) and bugging my maid's ear off to fix the Video Console and Playstation for me.
Similarly, I'll be kicking the boys arses at Super Mario going beyond levels like no girl has ever before.
Video Games Live (VGL) is a massive concert event featuring music from the greatest video games of all time, held worldwide especially in various parts of the United States of America. Those amazing pieces of video games sound effects & soundtrack musics you hear whilst battling it out? Yup.
They will all be recreated live and produced by industry veterans and world famous video game composers Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall; in collabo with our National Symphony Orchestra to perform along with exclusive video footage and music arrangements, synchronized lighting, special effects, solo performers, electronic percussion, live action and unique interactive segments to create an explosive one-of-a-kind entertainment experience. And guess what?
VGL IS HITTING MALAYSIA FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME!
It will be the First Video Game Concert live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
Aren't you excited already? I know the lads will 😀
In line with the goal to spread video game music worldwide, Video Games Live will be performing 2 shows in KL in collabo with the prestigious National Symphony Orchestra. I bet you've heard of The Legend of Zelda, Warcraft, Halo, Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog, Final Fantasy and Starcraft before, check out one of my personal faves.
