Guitar Hero Tunes Up for Two-Month Gig at Carnegie Science Center


Explore the science of video games on Saturday evenings playing Guitar Hero

PITTSBURGH, PA. – At 8 pm on Saturday, February 7, the amps will be turned up as Carnegie Science Center opens the Guitar Hero Electric Lounge, Pittsburgh’s only concert-quality venue where anyone can feel like a rock star.

Every Saturday evening in February and March, Carnegie Science Center will convert the fourth floor Works Theater into a rock concert venue as wanna-be rockers take the stage to compete in Guitar Hero World Tour®, the highly popular Activision video game. From 8 pm to midnight the Works Theater transforms into the Guitar Hero Electric Lounge featuring 8 giant screens, a concert-quality sound system, and lighting effects for a Guitar Hero experience unlike any other.

Science Center visitors also can explore the popular musical video game every Saturday from 5-7 pm in the same location during the Guitar Hero Jam Session, which is free with general admission. Starting at 8 pm, the Works Theater converts into the Guitar Hero Electric Lounge, where attendees can sign-up to play their favorite song from the game head-to-head against another guitarist. Tickets for the Electric Lounge are $8, or $5 for Carnegie Museums members. Visitors can add a laser show or Omnimax film for only $5 each.

In addition to playing the popular video game in a one-of-a-kind concert venue, visitors can learn about the science of video games, explore higher education and career opportunities, and discover local companies and universities involved in video game development.
