Konami kicked off their Metal Gear Rising Revengeance launch tour at LA's Universal CityWalk, with a special appearance by game producers Atsushi Inaba and Yuji Korekado signing copies of the new game for the legion of fans that spent much of the day in line to see them outside GameStop.  The first 150 fans were given access to a live concert next door at the Hard Rock Cafe.  The show featured an all-star metal band playing songs from the game soundtrack and featured vocalists John Bush (Armored Saint/Anthrax), Tyson Yen (State Line Empire/Drist), Free Dominguez (Kidneythieves), Jason Miller, Howard Jones, Ron Underwood, and Graham Cornies.

The lucky few that got into the exclusive event consumed free food and drinks, and took home some posters and t-shirts. Some even played the game on big screen TVs before heading home to play it on their own TVs for the rest of the night (this is why they called in sick today, LA area employers).

Here’s a few pics from the event for those who couldn’t be there in person…
