Video Games Live Update
Tue Nov 29, 2005, 7:19 pm
We have been working extremely hard since our Seattle and Vancouver dates to get Video Games Live back on track for 2006. We already have a new plan in place (which we have full control of) and have started booking shows for the upcoming year.
We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we go through this important transition. Although we got off to a somewhat rocky start, we were still able to put on the biggest video game concert the world had ever seen in July at the Hollywood Bowl. One of our goals in 2006 is to break that record as well as bringing the VGL experience to as many people as possible. We were also very proud to perform the first ever video game concert in the country of Canada.
Below is some current information we felt people might be interested in.
