With one more month to go before the concert takes place in Stadium Negara, the timing couldn’t be apt enough for the people behind Video Games Live Kuala Lumpur (VGL KL) 2016 – 11to11 Events – to provide a brief update on the progress of the show. While most of the information regarding the concert have been widely known, the company did reveal several new additions to the festival that will be accompanying the concert on 27 February.
First of all, the organizer has added mixed martial arts (MMA) demonstration sessions dubbed as Super Hero Fight Out into the mix which will be presented by one of the concert’s major sponsor, Tune Talk. Given how the telco has been actively promoting MMA in Malaysia for quite some time, this comes as no surprise.
At the same time, Tune Talk customers are also able to obtain 15% discount for VGLKL tickets. However, the discount is not applicable for the certain ticket classes including Moat, Maze, and the separate VIP Experience pass.
Meanwhile, P1 which is yet another sponsor of VGL KL 2016 will be providing continues broadband access through the event venue. At the same time, Red Bull (the European kind) will be spicing up the festival with simulators as well as its custom-built Navistar MXT event truck – nicknamed Chief – that is pretty much a mobile entertainment platform with its own DJ deck, and speakers.
Despite all these interesting additions to the VGL KL 2016, there is one rather unfortunate news though: Jillian Aversa, the vocalist who supposed to perform at the show has to cancel her appearance due to an illness. 11to11 Events didn’t revealed if there will be any replacements for her but has assured everyone that the concert will not be affected in any way.
As mentioned earlier, VGL KL 2016 will take place at Stadium Negara on 27 February which will feature Malaysia’s own National Symphony Orchestra performing music pieces from well-known video game titles under the supervision of conductor Eimear Noone as well as the founder of VGL, Tommy Tallarico. Tickets are readily available from the organizer’s website with prices ranging from RM 45 to RM 888.
