Video Games Live Announces First Group of 2009 Canadian Dates

Video Games Live today announced 10 Canadian performance dates for 2009. VGL, along with the Vancouver Symphony played to a sold-out audience at Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre in October and I can say first hand that this show is well worth the ticket price.

Not only is VGL a great journey down gaming’s nostalgia lane, it’s a fun and entertaining way to introduce our children to the world of symphonic music. While there has been no Vancouver date yet announced for 2009, I am hopeful that the show will return here next year.

Announced Dates:

Kitchener, ON – March 13 2009 – Centre In The Square with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony
Saskatoon, SK – May 10 2009 – TCU Place with the Saskatoon Symphony
Regina, SK – May 11 2009 – Conexus Arts Centre with the Regina Symphony Orchestra
Calgary, AB – May 15 & 16 2009 – Jack Singer Concert Hall with the Calgary Philharmonic
Edmonton, AB – May 18 2009 – Alberta Jubilee Auditorium
Kelowna, BC – May 20 2009 – Prospera Place
Victoria, BC – May 21 2009 – Royal Theatre
Prince George, BC – May 24 2009 – CN Centre
