If Video Games are a part of your life, especially the classics Mario™, Zelda™, Halo®, Final Fantasy® and more, tonight will be a little bit of heaven for you.

Tonight, Saturday, January 7, at DeVos Performance Hall, as part of the GR Pops Concerts, It's Video Games Live! It's the show that drew a record 11,000 people to its debut in Los Angeles in 2005,and it comes alive tonight, for one-night. Guest conductor Emmanuel Fratianni leads the Grand Rapids Symphony in a live performance of the original music from the games, accompanied by images and video from the games. Coupled with soloists, electronic percussion and lights, Video Games Live! is much more like a rock concert than a symphony orchestra concert, but when you include the world class Grand Rapids Symphony, you're a big winner.

The show was co-created and produced by guitarist Tommy Tallarico, a cousin of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler. One of the most successful video game composers of all time, Tallarico composed the music for the opening of Aerosmith’s “Girls of Summer” tour in 2002. And, Tallarico is the host for Video Games Live!
