The are concerts throughout Momocon, including “CAPCOM LIVE!”, the official Capcom concert tour, which, unlike the other orchestral format video game concerts, features a high energy rock band, vocalists, and orchestra performing the mega-incredible symphonic rock arrangements of the most memorable Capcom game music. One of the most exciting features of the “CAPCOM LIVE!” concert series is the broad array of classic Capcom titles represented in the concert lineup including Mega Man, Okami, Resident Evil and Street Fighter.
