Best $25 dollars I have spent in years! This being the first Video game live concert I have attended I must say it was a ton of fun. And being at Red Rocks just made it that much more special.
I have want to go to video games live in passing years but never got the chance too. If the concert series comes to your town, do yourself a favor and go get some tickets, you will love this show.
The Red Rocks show lineup was stellar!
The evening includes world premieres of new compositions for Grim Fandango and the Broken Age, with original composer Peter McConnell; Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross piano tribute; and The Banner Saga 2 with original composer Austin Wintory. The Colorado Symphony will record works for The Banner Saga 2 this fall.
