SC is on our list of places to look at for fall of 2008. NC is also on that list and we've been speaking with people there for over 3 months.

Oct 10th 2007 11:02PM To Phil: We're currently talking to Montreal about doing a show there. Stay tuned.
To me_inside: Dress however you want. Some people are in suits, others are in Mario shirts... and some are dressed AS Mario! :)
To Flyy: We have lots of East Coast shows coming up. These were only the first 25 of the announcement. Many more to come! Where do you live exactly?
To Ilyaga: I'm not sure that people enjoying themselves and cheering during the show should be considered "idiots". I can tell you that the musicians on stage really appreciate the cheers from the crowd which they normally aren't accustomed to!
To Kamizar: We are currently talking to Denver folks about bringing the show to Colorado.
To Tiger of PTS: You are mistaking our show with the Play! concert series. I believe the show you are referring to was held in San Jose. We currently do not play Lair or The Darkness... but Play! did those songs in San Jose.
Thanks Everyone. Feel free to ask more questions if you want.
Aug 7th 2007 7:24PM Thaks to JoyStiq for covering the NPR story! Much appreciated!
I normally try not to respond to such negative type posts but I was compelled to because of the irony and misinformation presented in the post by El Cruzado.
Yo El C.,
To say that we play every arrangement the same way is a very false statement. They are mostly all original arrangements made with the original composers. Everything from Halo, Sonic, Warcraft & Metal Gear Solid are completely original and can only be heard at VGL. Also... to say that we play everything you would expect and is typical is also quite peculiar... Tron?, Beyond Good & Evil?, Myst?, God of War?, EverQuest II?, Civilization IV?, Medal of Honor?, 25 Classic Arcade games?? Please let me know where else you can hear these scores played live. You say you want uniqueness but then you bag on Advent Rising and say it doesn't belong. Doesn't belong? It won 5 major industry awards in 2006 for "Best soundtrack of the year" including IGN, Yahoo & Play Magazine as well as being called "One of the greatest game soundtracks of all time."
And then you say we shouldn't play Final Fantasy VII?? Not play the most requested and worshipped video game song of all time? Hmmm?? Sorry... gotta disagree with you again.
I think what you are failing to realize is that we have created a show for the masses... whether you're into video games or not. The show is having a major impact in the live entertainment world and getting a lot of people who were previously ignorant to video game music... completely interested. So yes... it's important to play the classics such as Mario & Zelda & even Final Fantasy VII (god forbid!!). So although you may be "sick and tired" of hearing these played live (which is also a bit strange to me considering how often in the history of the world it has even happened), maybe you will consider that the concert (and others like it) is helping to raise the awareness of the artform of game music you love so much. Besides... We change the show everytime so we're always adding stuff.
