Our friends at the Charlotte Symphony gave us the Smarty Scoop on one of the coolest events we’ve heard of in a long time with Video Games Live! coming to Charlotte on February 19th. Think Guitar Hero and Rock Band meets the Charlotte Symphony with a full-on choreographed laser show. This event will rock the house for sure and your kids will think you hung the moon!
Video Games Live! is a multimedia concert experience featuring the best music and exclusive synchronized video clips from the most popular games from the beginning of video gaming to the present. Performed with the Charlotte Symphony, the show combines exclusive video footage and music arrangements with synchronized lighting, solo performers, stage show production, special FX, electronic percussionists, and unique interactive segments.
The pre-show festival is awesome with a Guitar Hero competition (my personal fave) where the winner will perform live on stage with the orchestra! And just because the concert is over doesn’t mean the fun stops there! All ticket holders are invited to the post show Meet & Greet with famous game composers and designers.
Whether it’s the power and passion of the more recent blockbusters or the excitement of remembering the sentimental classics, it will truly be a special night to remember for the entire family.
