Offering a welcome distraction from the lights and sounds of E3 this June
will be the ... lights and sounds of Video Games Live
. Not to be confused with the annual event's newly re-embraced discord, the musical performance aims to strike a more harmonious chord with attendees when the show takes the stage at LA's Greek Theater on June 4
Serving as E3's closing ceremony, the concert will include selections from such games as Chrono Trigger, Mega Man
and Final Fantasy
, as well as possible attendance by some "very special guests." Tickets are available through pre-sale for between $25 and $70. And for those unwilling to make the trek to E3, or for avid listeners with an unhealthy appetite for video game tuneage, a second performance alongside July's Comic Con in San Diego is also planned, promising "different material and different special guests."
