Video Games Live, the world famous multimedia concert featuring music from popular video games will be for one night only this Sunday at the Beacon Theater in New York City.

Video Games Live is performed by top orchestras and choirs and combines exclusive video footage and music arrangements with synchronized lighting, solo performers, stage show production, special FX, electronic percussionists and unique interactive segments.

Some of the franchises that will come alive on Sunday are: Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Halo, Sonic, Castlevania, Tron, Pac Man, Conan, Contra, Harry Potter, Donkey Kong, Puch Out, Duck Hunt...trust me, there are dozens more.

The beauty of this thing is that it brings together five generations of gamers under one roof . "Video Games Live" looks like it can proved to be every bit as exciting for classical music junkies, to the hardcore gamers, to mini van parents and their kids.

Also as part of the experience, for ticket holders who want to come early, get to play with interactive game demos, take part in a costume contest with prize give-a-ways, and have the chance meet-and-greet with top game composers and designers.
