Looks like live symphonic orchestras might be re-defining "Pop" to be more than The Best of John Williams, The Moody Blues and Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber. Fast-fowarding to the end of the 20th century, a collaboration of ahem, Marketing Execs have come up with Video Games Live, a seemingly bloated spectacle that sounds like a step up from Laser Pink Floyd .
Selections from the program include: Mario™, Zelda®, Halo®, Metal Gear Solid®, Warcraft®, Myst®, Castlevania®, Medal of Honor™, God of War™, Kingdom Hearts, Sonic™, Tron, Tomb Raider®, Advent Rising, Headhunter, Beyond Good & Evil™, Tom Clancy Montage (Splinter Cell®, Ghost Recon™, Rainbow Six®) EverQuest® II and a special retro arcade segment that goes from Pong® to Donkey Kong®. The VGL tour is coming to your town soon.
Expect plenty of ™ and ®.
