Video Games Live headlines E3 with Square Enix music and more By Erren Van Duine on June 10, 2014 at 2:33 PM

Video Games Live returns to the E3 stage this year with a robust line-up for their orchestral musical concert – once again showcasing music across all genres and game franchises including the likes of Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger and Kingdom Hearts.

With the show happening alongside E3 this year, industry guests in town will be taking the stage – offering up a show more significant than usual. This includes the likes of Tetris creator Alexey Pajitnov, Civilization IV’s Christopher Tin, Bioshock’s Gary Schyman, Monkey Islands’s Peter McConnell, and Halo’s Marty O’Donnel and Michael Salvatori.

Many other performances from the RPG genre will also be on display including the world premiere of Aria Di Mezzo Carattere (otherwise known as the opera music) from Final Fantasy VI. The show is slated to also feature music from Final Fantasy VII, Chrono Cross and a few surprises. You can find more details, and tickets, over on the Video Games Live website.

    I guess Square Enix finally gave in and started licensing their music to them. They probably wanted to prevent competition with Distant Worlds in the past. I remember for the early VGL concerts the only Kingdom Hearts music they could use was Hikaru Utada’s “Simple and Clean” since SE doesnt own it.
