Having seen VGL and talked to Russell when I got his autograph (feel free to be jealous now), it was totally worth it. VGL was just plain awesome, and while it was mostly things I had already seen/heard from WoW (if you played every zone and/or watch even a trailer for the game, you've seen/heard it), there was something amazing about seeing it live. The choir and symphony are usually local, so wherever you see it the majority of the performers are from that town. There are some hokey parts, but overall it was stunning and awe-inspiring. It made me want to go home and play WoW with the volume WAY too loud. The rest of the show was great as well. I particularly enjoyed the "retro" gaming part. Now, every performance can be slightly different, with different games featured, but it was worth it. Also, if there is a major university in the town, they often have student tickets available through the school that are much cheaper, especially if said university is supplying the choir like the school here did. If you have a chance to see it, go. Also, their website has many tour dates, they may have one near you if you can't get there. Don't miss it!PS Russell's favorite music in the game is Grizzly Hills if I remember correctly :)
