New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Performs Video Game Music Concert

NEWARK – Video Games Live: Bonus Round!, an immersive concert event featuring the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, returns to NJPAC’s Prudential Hall on Wednesday, Dec. 29 and Thursday Dec. 30 at 7:30 pm.

In this new production, popular video games from the early days of gaming until present, such as Mario, Halo, Final Fantasy®, Warcraft, Tron and MegaMan, get the full concert treatment with exclusive video game footage, dazzling synchronized lighting effects, live action and audience interactivity. A version of this special event was featured in a PBS special last summer and a Video Games Live CD and DVD/Blu-Ray was recently released.  There will be a post-show Meet & Greet in Prudential Hall lobby open to all ticket-holders that will include game composers, performers and special guests from Japan.


Video Games Live: Bonus Round! is presented in collaboration with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Tickets are $21, $36, $44, $52, $62 and $82 and may be purchased by telephone at 1-888-GO-NJPAC (1-888-466-5722), at the NJPAC Box Office at One Center Street in downtown Newark, or by visiting the NJPAC website at Video Games Live: Bonus Round! is a part of the Capital One Variety series.

“We are introducing a whole new generation to the music of a symphony orchestra,” said veteran video game composer and Video Games Live CEO/executive producer and host Tommy Tallarico. “Never before in history have kids been dragging their parents to watch a symphony. It’s not just a game music symphony—it’s music completely synchronized to cutting-edge visual effects and rock-and-roll lighting. You can know nothing about video games and still be blown away.”
