PLAY! Symphony on Tour, Coming to Edmonton in January

The creative minds behind the first ever gaming concert - Dear Friends - from the Final Fantasy Symphony Tour, are back with an entirely new concert series with PLAY! A Video Game Symphony.

Their new creation, headed by acclaimed music producer Jason M. Paul is a Symphony world-tour celebrating video game music and images from blockbuster video games such as Final Fantasy, Super Mario, Metal Gear Solid, Sonic the Hedgehog, Halo, and many more. The concert tour started off in North America on May 27, 2006 in Chicago, followed by a sold out show in Europe.

PLAY! is currently embarking on a world tour and will be visiting the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Alberta on January 9, 2009. The pre-show activities kick off at 5:30pm and include visits by special guests, a cosplay contest, demos & prizes and game competitions. The concert begins at 8:00pm.
