Video Games Live Tour Confirms UK Gigs

World tour is underway and will also go to mainland Europe

Last year we told you about Kickstarter success for Video Games Live, securing the release of another album of live game music performances. Headed up by industry veteran Tommy Tallarico, the project remains hugely popular with gamers around the world and is currently embarking on a world tour.

The Bonus Round show features music from some of the industry's best-known franchises, with two shows now scheduled for later this year in the UK — details from the press release are below.

The Bonus Round show includes music from games series such as Final Fantasy, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Mega Man, Street Fighter, Warcraft, Kingdom Hearts, Sonic the Hedgehog and many more, propelling the gaming experience beyond anything else before it with unprecedented variety and surprises.

“We’re thrilled and honoured to be bringing VGL back to the UK,” said Tommy Tallarico, creator and host of VGL. “VGL is a one of a kind entertainment experience so we’ve always strived to let as many people across the globe experience it. Not only do we get to come back to London but we’re very excited to be performing in Manchester for the very first time. We’ve always wanted VGL to perform more in the UK so this is definitely something we’re hoping we can expand and do more of in the future.”

Video Games Live tour dates:

Manchester O2 Apollo - Saturday 1st November 2014, 7PM
London Eventim Apollo - Sunday 2nd November 2014, 7PM
