The mixture of live action, interactive segments, and stirring musical themes creates an explosive one-of-a-kind entertainment experience. To see examples of the VGL experience, go to VGL
VGL was created by industry legend, composer Tommy Tallarico. The multimedia concert introduces new audiences – families, video game enthusiasts and non-gamers – to the symphonic experience. The concert spotlights the music that enhances the most gripping video game moments – rescuing the princess, winning the boss fight, saving the galaxy from aliens or defeating the undead – with performances from recent blockbusters and iconic classics.
