Halo: Reach gets the Video Games Live treatment

Halo: Reach will be getting the Video Games Live treatment. The one-of-a-kind music concert has already performed tracks from Halo 1, 2, and 3, but Halo: Reach will be added to the orchestra’s set list for the first time tomorrow at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington…

With a full orchestra playing an entire evening of music from such heralded franchises as Mario, Final Fantasy, Sonic, and Metal Gear Solid, the Video Games Live tour is like no other symphonic music exhibition you've ever witnessed. Trust us. The light show is fantastic.


Bungie audio director Marty O’Donnell and composer Michael Salvatori will also be attending the event as special guests. “It’s a real thrill and honor to have our music be a part of such a successful event like Video Games Live,” said O’Donnell. “To know that people around the world are able to experience our music live in such a creative and artistic way is very exciting for both myself and Mike,” continued O’Donnell.

This will be the first time that Halo: Reach’s music will be performed before a live audience. So if you’re in the Seattle area, we highly recommend that you consider treating yourself to tickets for the performance. You can find them for as low as $26 here.

    To Bobthemightyone: while Halo's theme is forever iconic and awesome, Reach in my opinion is O'Donnell's and Salvatori's best overall work to date... I would love to hear Reach live!

    I saw VGL in Detroit a couple months ago and can confirm that they are absolutely fantastic. I immediatley bought both of their albums afterwards. I can't recommend them enough, you gotta see them at least once. Reach isn't a great choice, but by no means is it a bad one.

    Why would they pick Halo Reach? Reach had horrible music. The other Halos had amazing music, so I understand them, but Reach? They should have picked Red Dead or something else if they wanted good music to perform.

    I would love to go to that! I hope they come to Michigan... I'm right now listening to my Halo 2 soundtrack, which is the best Halo EVER.
