This official CAPCOM concert tour will be co-produced by VGO General Producer Shota Nakama and Tommy Tallarico, who is the General Producer for Video Games Live, which is hugely popular in Europe and the U.S. In addition to the concert in Fukuoka and the charity concert in Kumamoto, which had already been announced, two further performances have been confirmed.

Based in America, and following the success that concerts featuring music from games have experienced all over the world, "CAPCOM LIVE!" is scheduled to tour throughout Kyushu, in what will be the first time the VGO will be performing live in Japan. Legendary CAPCOM games, such as "Street Fighter," "Monster Hunter," "BIO HAZARD (Resident Evil)," and "ROCKMAN (Mega Man)," will be brought back to life with the help of a rock band, an orchestra and videos. The action packed VGO performance is created by an array of talented individuals who have charmed audiences all over the world, so be sure not to miss out on the chance to experience it firsthand!
