The theme is a perfect fit for gamescom and the appeal of Video Games LIVE™ for the various gamescom target groups match our event concept perfectly”, says gamescom Project Manager Tim Endres in regards to the latest addition to the supporting programme. “We’re very excited to bring Video Games Live to gamescom and to Cologne for the very first time. gamescom being Europe’s and one of the world’s most important video games shows, to us it feels like a natural symbiosis to host our event in direct connection. We’re very much looking forward to welcome gamescom visitors and video games music fans to our Cologne gig – this should be a perfect opportunity to round up a day filled with video games” says Tommy Tallarico from Video Games Live.

The spectacular staging of music by Final Fantasy, Warcraft, Sonic, Skyrim, Metal Gear Solid, Kingdom Hearts, Castlevania, Street Fighter II, Mega Man, Monkey Island, Earthworm Jim and many more perfectly bridges the gap between the worlds of classical and popular music and is thus absolutely worth a visit for gamescom guests of all generations.
