Video Games Live concert kicks off its national tour

HOLLYWOOD — From electronic bloops and bleeps to symphonic refrains and rondos, videogame fans had a chance to celebrate the music of their favorite hobby, courtesy of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

The Video Games Live concert kicked off its national tour July 6 at the Hollywood Bowl.

Event also attracted celebrity gaming enthusiasts such as Elijah Wood and comic creator Stan Lee. Gaming designers from Tokyo, England and France also attended to see their creations played live.

“They did a study a couple of months ago, and it said that the average American household plays 13 hours of videogames of week,” said event host Tommy Tallarico of gaming channel G4’s “Judgment Day.”

“That’s more than people watch television, more than they go to the movies and — unfortunately for some — more than they read books. Videogames have really evolved into our culture and become the entertainment of choice for the 21st century.”
