"Gen Con is the mecca of hobby gaming enthusiasts," said the organisers. "These games range from card games, to board games, role-playing games, live action role-playing games, miniatures, computer games and more. Last year, more than 26,000 unique attendees experienced Gen Con Indy." The concert will be performed by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, one of America’s leading orchestras and performed at the Hilbert Circle Theatre. The historic theater also featured leading entertainers of their eras, including Tommy Dorsey, Spike Jones, Frank Sinatra, Rudy Vallee, Glenn Miller, and Dizzy Gillespie among others. "Performing Video Games Live with such a distinguished orchestra, venue and convention only further legitimizes what Video Games Live means to the world of music," said VGL organisers. "We are continuing to spread the word city by city that video game music and video games are here to stay and can be appreciated by all."
