The ultimate “cherry-on-top” for your San Diego comic con weekend is now on sale.  On Thursday, July 23, 2009 at 7:30pm, at the Embarcadero Marina Park South (behind the San Diego Convention center), Video Games Live will be making their second Comic Con concert.  I was lucky enough to get free tickets to the first concert back in 2008 from a good friend. It was my birthday present. (Thanks Aric!)

tommytjackwallIf you’ve been living under a rock and have never heard of Video Games Live, I’ll explain it for you.  Imagine a orchestral concert that only plays video game theme songs. Awesome idea? Yea, I know. But there’s more.  They also play videos of from the game they are playing music from onto a big screen. Last year they had a Guitar Hero contest before the concert started.  The winner of contest was invited on stage to play guitar hero in front of the whole crowd with the game projected on a HUGE screen.  They also had a small costume contest. To top it all off, they have the “Blindfolded Mario Pianist”, Martin Leung as part of the show!

The whole idea was created by Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall.  And what an awesome idea it is.

Now that I’ve convinced you to go, I’ve took the liberty of making a seating chart diagram and calling the Box Office for ticket prices.  They don’t have a seating chart up yet and the prices they have on their site are kind of confusing.
