Sometimes, there's nothing greater than sitting down and enjoying some beautiful music played by some of the most talented musicians in the world. It's even better when you can create a scene in your head with the music as a backdrop. Go one step further, enjoying the music of the past and present of one of your favorite hobbies, and you're in heaven.

This is what Video Games Live brings to the masses, playing some of the best music from video games over the past few decades in instrumental form. If you live in Los Angeles, or are going to be there for E3 2014, you'll be able to enjoy Video Games Live with your own ears.

This show promises to be one of the best shows VGL has put on thus far in its 13 years, and will be held on June 11. If you'd like to see the show after E3, or are just in the neighborhood, it's just a quick jaunt across the street from the LA Convention Center at the Nokia Theater. Plan on being floored as you listen to some of the best gaming music of all time, LIVE.
