E3 Videogame Music Concert Canned

The first US concert to feature videogame music has been pushed back a year to make it bigger and better.

Last August we reported that as part of the E3 festivities, a music concert featuring videogame tunes was announced. As giddy as everyone around the gaming community was to hear about this, it turns out that the concert has been pushed back into 2004.

Here's a small clip from the article at Music4Games.net:

Event Producer Jack Wall recently informed [Music4Games], "The response to the concert was so overwhelmingly positive, we decided to plan a bigger show for next year rather than the one we were originally planning for this year. Several corporate sponsors also have expressed serious interest in 2004 rather than 2003 and that will go a long way to making our larger plan a reality."

Seems like a good reason. For the rest of the explanation as to why the concert was pushed into 2004, read the full article over at Music4Games.

I would've been perfectly happy with an 80% show.

I haven't heard much about this concert in the first place. If this is an E3 concert, the concert, like the rest of the expo, won't be open to the public, right? Either way, I hope they'll come out with a cd or something. To bad it was postponed.

It would be open to the public. It is not affilitated with E3, they just planned to have it right after E3 so all the video game peolple would stick around for it.

Oh. Thanks for clearing it up. Well, it's not like I'll travel all the way to LA just to see a concert anyway.

Honestly, this doesn't surprise me considering Tommy Tallarico was in charge of it all...
