Twitch to stream Video Games Live concert this Saturday

A live concert with music from more than a dozen video game series sounds like a perfect night out for a devoted gamer, other than that whole "night out" thing. But when Video Games Live performs at the San Diego Civic Theatre next week, both San Diego Comic Con attendees and music aficionados can enjoy thanks to a live stream from Twitch.

The event begins on July 20 at 6 p.m. PDT. Its orchestras and choirs will be led by guest conducting game composers like Austin Wintory of Journey as well as principal conductor Emmanuel Fratianni. Besides Journey, new music and accompanying video from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Destiny, and Dota 2 will debut, and classics from Monkey Island, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter II, Chrono Trigger, Shadow of the Colossus, Skyrim, and more will round out the selection of more than 20 compositions.

Viewers can tune in remotely to see new cinematic snippets of the games and hear the performances on Twitch's own streaming channel. The concert itself will begin at 8 p.m. PDT and will conclude at 10:30 p.m.

    I actually just got back from their concert in Wolftrap near D.C. Was a fantastic, if not hot (outdoor amphitheater) show. They added some new material to their sets like the main theme from Skyrim, some sets from Shadow of the Colossus and Journey as well. Good stuff. Tommy really makes an event out of it, I recommend anyone who can attend do so, and if you can't this stream should be nothing if not entertaining!
