If you didn’t already know, Video Games Live is going to be in Miami (the home base of GamerXChange) on Friday, May 16, 2014. This will be the first stop on its South and Central Florida tour over the weekend. To kick things off, you can enjoy the great Video Games Live concert, but after, you can go to the club for the Official Video Games Live free after party. Hey, this is Miami, what’d you expect?
The video games concert that has been sweeping the world over the past nine years is coming to Miami for the first time and you know we had to do it big. So tickets are on sale right now for Video Games Live at the beautiful Adrienne Arsht Center. There we’ll get to hear a lot of our favorite game music along with a spectacular lights show and video screen displaying gaming’s greatest moments. Producer and founder of the show, Tommy Tallarico describes it as,
“…all of the greatest video game music of all time played by a full symphony and choir; but what makes it really special and unique is that everything is completely synchronized – the massive video screens, special effects, rock and roll lighting, stage show production, interactive elements with the crowd. So I like to describe it as having all of the power and emotion of a symphony orchestra but combined with the energy and excitement of a rock concert, mixed together with all of the cutting edge visuals and technology and interactivity and fun that video games provide.”
So no doubt the concert will be great, but Miami has thrown in something special for after the show finishes; the after party. Taking place at the historic and popular club venue, Grand Central Miami, there will be live DJ music, dancing, drinks, and yes – video games. The after party is free for everyone who has a ticket from the concert. For everyone else without a concert ticket, the door charge is – $5 (ages 21+) and $10 (ages 18+).
