The year before last I went to see the 'Greatest Video Game Music' concert by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and it was amazing. I missed the second outing though.

If anyone has Spotify, both albums are on there:

The Greatest Video Game Music Vol. 1

The Greatest Video Game Music Vol. 2

LSO St Lukes is a great venue. I might see if there are tickets still next month.

I was there too! Only noticed it thanks to time out. There was not a second concert for the second album :(
