by Rainier on Oct. 10, 2007 @ 4:05 p.m. PDT

Video Games Live, produced and created by veteran video game composers Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall, will continue its tour with the announcement of 25 new shows across North America and the United Kingdom.

Video Games Live features music from the most popular video games performed by top orchestras and choirs, combining exclusive video footage and music arrangements with synchronized lighting, solo performers, special fx, electronic percussionists and unique interactive segments.

The highest and most prestigious level of symphony and venue quality continues with the announcement of some of the world’s most renowned orchestras and local theatres, halls, auditoriums and arenas. To further attract the biggest audience possible, Video Games Live also partners with gaming’s most important conferences and conventions.

A brand new show kicking off this fall will add to the already incredible line up which currently includes Mario, Zelda, Warcraft, Halo, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid, Myst, Sonic and many more. More interactive video screens, synchronized lighting, special fx, stage production and audience participation have been added to the performance as well as new and exclusive musical segments. Working directly with game developers and publishers, Video Games Live is the first concert to perform the world premieres of Halo 3, BioShock, Conan, StarCraft II and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix video game music scores.
