Video Games Live 2010 At NJPAC
Video game music + live orchestra = geek bliss.

Page 1: Introduction, Are You Serious?, Pre-Show

Introduction

If you're a resident in northern New Jersey, you know about NJPAC and the performances that go on there. The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra does many musical pieces and more, but we aren't interested in that. What do you get when you take classic video game music and combine it with true orchestral performance performed by trained professionals along side one of the most prolific composers of video game music (Tommy Tallarico)? Don't bother answering since just thinking about it will make your head explode with excitement.

Are You Serious?

This is a real show, yes! Back in 2008, Video Games Live came to NJPAC with two showings and both were sold out. The original show was nothing but sheer video game nostalgia and really takes you back to times that have gone by when you were a kid.

Pre-Show

Don't just come on time, come early. Before the show, there are tons of people crowding the halls and some dressed in costumes that range from Protoman to Hammer Brothers Mario.



Even the people that aren't interested in dressing up can come in before and have some fun with the arcade style games setup. Want to show off your skills at Guitar Hero against others? No problem here.

The event was packed and all age groups were covered from the young to the old and everyone between them. Most people came with some type of gaming attire as was standard practice for this type of performance.
