Video Games Live is proud to announce the very first video game concert ever in Quebec! The show will take place at the beautiful St-Denis Theatre on Friday, February 8th, 2008. VGL was the first concert to ever bring video game music to Canada (back in 2005) and since then they've been selling out shows all across Canada including Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto & Calgary. Since Video Games Live started in 2002, the people of Montreal have been asking them to visit, and they have responded.
Video Games Live is an immersive concert event featuring music from the most popular video games of all time. Top orchestras & choirs perform along with exclusive video footage and music arrangements, synchronized lighting, solo performers, electronic percussionists, live action and unique interactive segments to create an explosive entertainment experience! This is a concert event put on by the video game industry to help encourage and support the culture and art that video games have become.
