During the week of E3, on June 6, Video Games Live
will take over the Nokia Theater L.A. Live arena. Being E3 and all, and L.A. being one of the most frequently played venues for Tommy Tallarico's live video game concert, this year he wanted to add some special scores – like Austin Wintory's Journey
score, conducted by Wintory himself.
It's just one of the more recent audio accompaniments added for the June 6 show. There are also select tunes from Skyrim
, which will be handled by a secret guest conductor; composer Russell Bower will conduct some Diablo 3
tunes. Donkey Kong Country
, Star Fox
and even a Street Fighter
segment – to celebrate the 25th anniversary
of Capcom's fighter – are planned. Akira Yamaoka will also play guitar at some point.
Finally, there's Earthworm Jim
to consider, a game that Tallarico himself worked on. Apparently folks have been asking him to add it to Video Games Live for quite some time now, which we're totally in favor of – as long as we get that thrash metal remix of "Use Your Head
" we've been waiting our entire lives
