Video Games Live at the Palace Theatre, 19 Clinton Avenue, Albany on Sunday October 8, 2023. The show starts at 7:30pm and tickets range from $20-$68. If tickets are still available you will find them HERE and the Palace Theatre box office.

Tommy Tallarico will team up with the Albany Symphony Orchestra for a performance of all the greatest video game music of all-time played by the Albany Symphony and Choir synchronized with massive video screens and stage lighting.


This show is fun for the entire family and unique when compared to traditional concert tours. The video game industry is projected to generate more than $250 billion in revenue. That means a lot of consumers listening to these songs while they play the games.

Talk about hit songs? You will hear music from Halo, Skyrim, Kingdom Hearts, God of War and Final Fantasy to name a few. Listen to the interview below and hear more about the surprise at the end. Tommy Tallarico and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith are cousins!
