Video Games Live Touring Canada   vgl

Those of you who are unaware of what Video Games Live is, I’m more than a little disappointed in you. Video Games Live, commonly abbreviated VGL, is a concert series put on by a team of industry veterans and video game composers Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall. In addition to playing music from classics such as Halo, Sonic the Hedgehog, Metal Gear Solid, and The Legend of Zelda, VGL puts on something of a light show as well.

Sound awesome? Well, if you live in Canada, you’re in luck. Video Games Live is touring Canada later this year, starting in Toronto on October 25 and ending in Vancouver on November 6. There’s going to be a total of ten shows that will include new music from Skyrim, Pokemon, Mass Effect, Earthworm Jim, and more. For further information, including how to get tickets, visit the official VGL website.
