Catch Rockstar Soundtrack Alumni Live in Concert

Posted on August 10 2012, 11:13am | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Music, Rockstar

Especially for all Rockstar fans who've been turned on to new (or classic) artists in the soundtracks to our games throughout the years, and who'd love to get the word on when some of these acts are hitting your local stages, we present the Rockstar Soundtrack Alumni concert calendar -  a selection of notable artists who've appeared in our games and where you can catch them locally over the coming month.

With plenty of summer festival action still in high season, here's a lineup of gigs from artists you've heard in Max Payne 3 (HEALTH, Garland Jeffreys, Gary Clark Jr., Trouble & Bass, Drop the Lime), L.A. Noire (The Real Tuesday Weld), Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (Ticklah), and Bully (Shawn Lee). Of course this calendar is by no means complete, so if you're aware of other shows from other Rockstar soundtrack artists, or if you've caught a show recently yourself, or if there's a particular soundtrack artist you'd like more info on - do shout it out on in comments to share. Also feel free to send us pics if you happen to attend any of these shows and we may feature them in an upcoming post.

      I asked this question a while ago, will the Grand Theft Auto III Theme be available on iTunes or anywhere else? Its my favorite of the GTA Themes.

      Tears is one of the best song i've ever heard!

        @FlimSurpuissant Very cool. And very glad to have been able to put you up on Truth & Soul, cheers.

      Damn would like to see Shawn Lee live. I love the song Kiss The Sky and the awesome instrumentals in Bully. Too bad I live in Germany.
      • R* Aon August 13 2012, 10:44amReplyFlag
        @HotDogHomicide His new album is awesome too - Synthesizers in Space

        @ Yes it is
      • HotDogHomicideon August 13 2012, 1:01pmReplyFlag
        @ Sick! Just gave it a listen. Thanks for pointing it out.
        You should also check out Tycho, if you don't already know him.

      Ticklah , what a great dub in CW . Is there lyrics on the PSP version of the game or is instrumental like on DS ? I don't have PSP version so I was wondering . Also I recommend DS users to plug their DS on speakers : sick bass lines

          you guys should get Amon Tobin to do some work for one of your games. He's a brilliant artist and his soundtrack for splinter cell was great -- I never even played the game, just bought the album.

            Very cool. Thank you, Rockstar. I wish I could attend some of these gigs.
            I'm actually quite disappointed with myself at the moment because I missed out on the chance to see Toots and the Maytals (San Andreas, Episodes From Liberty City) perfom recently, right here in Edinburgh, as part of the Fringe Festival - however, they are scheduled to play elsewhere in the UK and in Europe soon, so check it out! - It'd be quite fitting as well, as I believe Jamaica celebrates 50 years of independace this month.

            Also, I think it should be mentioned in the article that Toto was featured in the San Andreas soundtrack, as well as Vice City's.

            Thanks again.

              @CC_North True - "Hold the Line"! What a song. That's been added above, thanks for pointing it out.

              @ Sure. And nice link too, thanks. Enjoy your weekend!

            I really want to go to the @HEALTH concert!!! :):):)

            Will we be able to watch live stream of the concerts? It would be great.

              @ipekguler Some might be available depending on the venue, but we don't have any specific info to pass along

              @ That would be a great favor for the people who don't live in the US and can't go to the concerts, if we can watch a stream of teh HEALTH concert that would be awesome
            • R* Aon August 12 2012, 11:21amReplyFlag
              @Sprunk1995 Of course, that's up to the concerts and festivals themselves - we're just reporting on where you can catch 'em. Having a look at the FYF website, unfortunately doesn't look like they're planning a live stream, but you never know.

              Seattle, OR? As in Oregon, not Washington? That doesn't sound right.

              One of my Favorite songs from GTA IV has to be:

              "Dime" by Ivy Queen (San Juan Sounds)
              • iLewisGTAon August 10 2012, 2:05pmReplyFlag
                I might just have to fly to Los Angeles from the UK just to go and see HEALTH. Gosh, It's going to be expensive, but I suppose it will be worth it =D
                • iLewisGTAon August 10 2012, 1:51pmReplyFlag
                  @R* what about Michael Hunter! The guy who made the GTA IV Theme Song! - Oh Yea!

                  I have been a few times to the Pinkpop festival in Landgraaf The Netherlands and it's always great to be there.
                  And now with the Pink Pop Classic I know that would be also great to see.

                  THNX ***Rockstar*** For All The Great Music In Your Games :D:D:D
