VIDEO GAMES LIVE ANNOUNCES 45 MORE TOUR DATES!

World Tour to Consist of Over 60 Shows Including Performances During Comic Con, E3, WonderCon and Many More

Continued Addition of New Material Keeps Show Fresh For Each Performance



LOS ANGELES, CA – February 27, 2009
- 
After having just performed the opening of the Taiwan International Music Festival last weekend in Taipei to an endless sea of tens of thousands, and having sold out every show so far this year, Video Games Live is proud to announce 45 new shows for 2009.  The 2009 World Tour will consist of more than 60 shows ranging from Asia to South America, to all over Europe and North America.

Created in 2002 and launched in 2005 by video game veterans Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall, Video Games Live has gone on to become the worldwide leader in live video game entertainment.  Marc Geiger, Senior Executive Vice-President at the William Morris Agency stated, “2008 was a big break-out year for the guys, having performed nearly 50 shows, but 2009 is going to be even bigger.  Our goal from the start was to turn Video Games Live into a household name and Tommy and Jack have been really successful in creating a show for everyone to enjoy whether you’re into games or not.”

Video Games Live has seen amazing growth over the years and has gone from 3 shows in 2005, to 11 shows in 2006, to 29 shows in 2007 to 47 shows in 2008.  And the upward trend will continue in 2009 as well as performances already being scheduled for 2010.

In order to build and keep audiences returning year after year, Video Games Live continues to add and update new material and segments each month.  Although only able to perform around 20 segments per performance, Video Games Live has created over 60 segments for which to draw from during each show.  In its 5 year touring history, no two shows have ever been the same.
