If you are a fan of Video Games Live (and Tommy Tallarico for that matter), then i´ve got some really good news for you. As we all know, the Level 3 album became a really big success on Kickstarter (over $285,000 was collected in total!).
And that´s why Tommy Tallarico has started a Kickstarter campaign for the VGL Level 4 album. Which aims to collect $150,000 within 38 days from now (so fair Level for has raised $72,000!). A goal which i believe Level 4 will reach very, very soon.
Especially considering the fact that the campaign is almost 50% funded already. So if you wanna help Tommy Tallarico make the Level 4 album happen. Then show him (and the album) some love on Kickstarter!

LOS ANGELES, CA – October 20, 2014 - The first, longest running and most successful video game concert tour Video Games Live is proud to announce the launching of its 2nd Kickstarter project to help fund their 4th album entitled VIDEO GAMES LIVE: LEVEL 4. Last year Video Games Live successfully funded LEVEL 3 as it became the 3rd highest grossing Kickstarter album to date. The album was released earlier this year in February on the exact date that was originally planned.
Video Games Live Creator/Executive Producer and 25 year game industry veteran Tommy Tallarico said, “The music industry has changed a lot over the past 13 years since we started Video Games Live, and no record company was willing to take a chance on risking the money needed to create the project to the high quality and standards that it needed to be. The traditional record companies didn’t believe in the concept and they thought we were crazy… but the outpouring of fan support from around the world was incredible and inspirational. We proved to the world that people DO care about video game music and we believe that lightning can strike twice.”
Hoping to continue its success, Video Games Live is once again quadrupling the reward value for every pledge to give back to the supporters as much as possible. “This isn’t about making a profit”, said Tallarico who has never taken a paycheck from Video Games Live over the 13 years since it was created, “this is about continuing to prove to the world how culturally significant and artistic video games have become and to provide the highest possible quality to the fans around the world. We are very transparent in the numbers for the project and have listed a complete budget for everything. I wish more Kickstarter projects would do this.”
There are over 110 different Rewards offered through the LEVEL 4 project as top game composers and developers from around the world band together once again to help create something special for audiences around the world.

Incorporated in 2002, Video Games Live is the first and most successful video game touring concert in the world having performed almost 300 shows in 35 countries on 5 continents. Over 11,000 people were present for the debut performance at the Hollywood Bowl with the L.A. Philharmonic and since then over 1 million people have experienced the show live.
Video Games Live has released 3 albums worldwide (all of which debuted in the Billboard Top 10) as well as an award winning full length feature DVD/Blu-Ray. In 2010 the show aired nationally on PBS and quickly became one of the top rated PBS Specials of all time. With over 500+ ticket buyer reviews on Ticketmaster.com, Video Games Live boasts a 4.6 (out of 5) rating.
Inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for the biggest, most successful and longest running game concert in the world, Video Games Live continues to break new ground and thrill audiences worldwide with brand new content each year.
Video Games Live currently has ON SALE over 30 shows taking place over the next 5 months around the world and is about to embark on a 3 week 10 country tour of Europe! You can view the Video Games Live Tour Dates at the following link: http://videogameslive.com/index.php?s=dates
