We have a couple of very important bits of information regarding the upcoming VGO concert on Sunday, October 7 in Boston. You’ll notice, first of all, that we’ve added a banner for the concert in our site header that will stay in-place until the show has taken place. That’s because we are really excited about this show and want to see it succeed!
Second, and this is really exciting … a fourth guest has been confirmed. We already know that Hitoshi Sakimoto, Noriyuki Iwadare, and Kinuyo Yamashita will be at the show. Now, the above video from Shota Nakama confirms for us that Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Mana, Radiant Historia, Parasite Eve, Super Mario RPG, Xenoblade, and many many others) will be attending the show as well. This is very exciting news!! A reminder that anyone who purchases VIP tickets will be able to attend a special meet&greet after the show to talk with the composers and have items signed.
Speaking of purchasing tickets, there is a discount available that we’d like everyone to know about. If you enter “rockestralgamemusic” as a promotional code while doing online checkout for your tickets, you will receive a 10% discount*!
Finally, we’d like to note that the VGO Kickstarter campaign to have this show recorded and pressed as an official CD (and digital album) is currently at over $10,000, which puts it more than 1/3 of the way to its goal of $30,000 with 21 days left to go in the campaign. If you can’t make it to the Boston live show (or heck, even if you can), do yourself a favor and support this Kickstarter! $10 for the bare-bones digital album, $20 for the CD, and some very interesting rewards the higher your pledge goes! Please check it out! (I’m urging you for very selfish reasons: I want this CD!)
