Video Games Live tunes in to Kickstarter to fund third album

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Video Games Live is a bit of a beast to describe. It's a concert, stage show and game demonstration all wrapped into one multimedia event where artists mix rock and symphony instruments as they play your favorite game tunes along to synchronized footage and on-stage acting. Think someone dressed up as a soldier from the Metal Gear Solid series searching across the stage while an orchestra plays the alert theme from the games while a video of gameplay from Metal Gear Solid projects behind them, and you have an idea of what to expect.

The show has been running for awhile now, and has released two albums (which you can download via iTunes) in that time. Now, event host Tommy Tallarico has taken to Kickstarter in hopes of funding a studio-recorded album as opposed to the previous two live albums. Backer rewards include a personalized message from David Hayter (Solid Snake) and even a tour of Blizzard Entertainment, provided you've got a couple grand to splurge.
