VideoGamesLiveLogoJULY 23, 2016 – LOS ANGELES, CA –   Video Games Live, the largest, most successful and longest running video game concert in the world continues its 13 year history of solidifying the game industry as a legitimate art form by proudly announcing 45 new performances across the globe.  Through its record-breaking chart topping album sales and continuous SOLD OUT shows around the world, Video Games Live continues to set Guinness World Records for the longest running symphony show of its kind.

Having already performed 21 shows in 2015, Video Games Live will be performing 16 shows on 4 continents over the next month including the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado with the Colorado Symphony as well as teaming up with Gamescom (the biggest video game convention in the world) for 4 shows in Cologne, Germany.  Aside from its normal shows, Video Games Live will also be taking part in Valve’s Dota 2 Championship – “The International” opening ceremony in the KeyArena in Seattle as well as providing the on stage entertainment for the nationally televised Panoramic Game Awards in Shanghai, China.

25 year video game composer veteran and creator of Video Games Live, Tommy Tallarico says, “It’s been such a great honor to be able to bring this music to the world for so long.  Each year the show gets bigger and better thanks to the amazing audiences who continuously help us to spread the word.  We owe everything to our fans around the world.”

A big key to the success of Video Games Live is the ever changing setlist and new material that is constantly being worked on and added to the show.  2015 has been no exception with the introduction of new segments and World Premieres from game franchises such as Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor and Heroes of the Storm, Capcom’s Phoenix Wright and Devil May Cry, Doublefine’s Grim Fandango and Broken Age as well as other well known franchises including ICO, Syberia, NEIR, The Banner Saga and many more on the way.  The audience can help decide the setlist for each show by going to the Video Games Live Facebook Events page for the performance in their area and listing the songs and games they would like to hear.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
