If we were gonna throw down that much money to experience a video game in person, we'd just go see the Broadway version of The Lion King video game. And yes, The Lion King WAS a video game! Google it. LOLz.
Disney-video-game-adaptations aside, we're not 100% sure that we think it'd be worth $65 - $175 to go see a live performance of video game music, but we could be wrong.
The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is def hoping we're wrong, because this weekend they'll be featuring Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy, which will showcase compositions from the hit video game series performed live to "state-of-the-art HD videos and stills shown on a massive screen highlighting the games’ most memorable sequences."
We ARE aware the Final Fantasy fans can be pret-ty hardcore, so maybe this event will end up being a hit!
Will U go to BAM to experience Final Fantasy music live?
