Video Games Live to Air on PBS
Video Games Live and PBS are joining forces to create an exclusive nationwide PBS special based around the highly successful Video Games Live concert series. The breakthrough performance will be taped on February 5th, 2010 at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and is slated to begin airing in June 2010 on PBS stations. Tickets for the performance will be going on sale Friday, December 18 at 10am CST.
Reaching an average of over 58 million viewers a week, PBS is the most prominent provider of programming to U.S. public television stations. “We believe the concept of introducing young audiences to an orchestra through the music of video games fits perfectly with PBS’s mission in a very new and creative way,” said PBS Vice-President of Programming Joe Campbell. “We are very optimistic that the program will be a big success!”
