The Game Awards 10-Year Concert, hosted by Geoff Keighley and held at the Hollywood Bowl, was a night of epic proportions. The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra performed suites from popular games including League of Legends, God of War, The Last of Us, Starfield, Final Fantasy XVI, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and many more. Tenacious D (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) performed their “Video Games” song, and Black concluded the night with an exhilarating performance of “Peaches” from The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

The Game Awards has released the performance online for everyone to see. Audiences at the Hollywood Bowl were definitely surprised when Jack Black came out in his Bowser attire to perform “Peaches.”

The Game Awards 10-Year Concert had composer Lorne Balfe conducting LA Philharmonic’s Hollywood Bowl Orchestra under a giant screen with complementary video game footage. Many special guests appeared including Star Wars Jedi: Survivor star Cameron Monaghan (Gotham) presenting the Star Wars Jedi suite, The Last of Us composer Gustavo Santaolalla strumming along with his ronroco string instrument, and Crash Bandicoot was with the audience for photo opportunities. Guests in attendance included EDM producer Zedd, composer Inon Zur and The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann.

There were many wonderful performances from special guests, and Eivor was one of the highlights with her vocals and drumming during the God of War suite. She truly embodied the Viking spirit with her hair, makeup, and attire.
