Video Games Live Announces New Tour Dates   videogameslive

Video Games Live continues to put out great music and remind the world that videogame soundtracks are absolute treasures. They’ve just announced over thirty more tour dates spanning several countries, including the United States, Mexico, China, Brazil, and more. They also promise “big surprises,” which should be exciting for anyone going to any of the shows.

A few highlights of the tour include the first ever videogame concert in Orange County, CA, a free show in San Diego thanks to Amazon.com and Ubisoft that will play during the San Diego Comic Con, two Blizzard Entertainment shows in Shanghai and Beijing, and a massive Latin America tour.

These dates kick off this very week and go until May of next year, so be sure to check out their tour dates to see when they’re playing near you. I’ve listed the full press release below, but be sure to head to the Video Games Live website for ticket information.
