Video Games Live has had a prolific year, embarking on a global tour that saw the troupe play more than 50 shows. However, for those unable to make it to any of those shows, the concert series will be offering a different kind of venue in 2010, as it has partnered with PBS to provide a nationwide broadcast of its upcoming New Orleans show to be aired June 2010.

The performance will be taped on February 5 at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans. The Video Games Live ensemble will be joined by the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. Those interested in attending the event can purchase tickets for $15 through Ticketmaster or the Lakefront Arena Box Office beginning December 18 at 10 a.m. CST.

Beyond the performance, Video Games Live plans to release a companion DVD and Blu-ray in summer 2010 featuring the ensemble's various performances. The video will include behind-the-scenes footage and a making-of vignette, as well as developer and composer interviews.

The organization also plans to release Volume Two in its Video Games Live CD compilation this summer. Volume One was released in July 2008 and featured medleys from such hit franchises as Halo, Myst, Civilization, and God of War.
