AEROSMITH ANNOUNCES OPENING ACT CONTEST
May 5, 2009
Rock icons Aerosmith with special guest ZZ Top are gonna wreak rock n’ roll havoc this summer on a massive US tour! And you could be THE OPENING ACT. Time to put your Guitar Hero skill to the ultimate test. This isn’t your living room couch – its the real deal! Two worthy fans will perform playing Guitar Hero: Aerosmith on stage as the opening act before the show roars onto the stage- one winner from online and one from radio will be chosen in each city. If that taste of rock stardom weren’t reward enough, the winner from each city also wins two tickets to the show, a Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game pack, and a personal congrats from Steven Tyler and Joe Perry before the show! (For the winner only, not their guest)
If you think you can rule Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, here’s what you gotta do to become rock lore in your city…
1. Create a video of you either playing killer air guitar using the Guitar Hero guitar controller OR shredding a wicked session of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. If you use music in your submission you can only submit using these songs: Make It, Uncle Salty, Draw The Line, No Surprize, Moving Out, Sweet Emotion, Nobody’s Fault, Bright Light Fright, Back in the Saddle, Dream On, Mama Kin, Toys In The Attic, Combination, Let the Music Do the Talking, Mercy, Pandora’s Box, Rats in the Cellar, Shakin My Cage, Talk Talking, Walk This Way.
2. Upload your video to YouTube. IMPORTANT! – In order for us to find your entry, YOU MUST TAG YOUR VIDEO as follows – “AerosmithOpeningAct” (one word, no spaces) AND another tag with the city you want to win, ie “Mansfield”. So your two tags would be: “AerosmithOpeningAct”, “Mansfield.” (Use the city name listed under the “Location” column on the Aero Force One tour page. If the city is two words like “St. Paul,” eliminate any punctuation and spaces so the tag reads: “StPaul”)
3. Subscribe to Aerosmith’s Official YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/theofficialaerosmith. We’ll update the contest videos there on a weekly basis, so make sure you see your entry posted after a week! If its not there, double check that you tagged it correctly. If you entered everything correctly, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your YouTube video contest entry, the city you hope to win, your first and last name and your email address.
4. AF1 will pick a winner for each city! Hint: To get your entry noticed, make sure your vid is crazy, cool, rockin’, funny, creative or insane – within the letter of the law, of course. AF1 will pick the video that displays the best combination of creativity, skill and star power.
5. In each city, two (2) Runners Up winners will score a pair of tickets to their city of choice and a Guitar Hero: Aerosmith game pack. Runner Up Prizes will include consideration for the videos with the most views, comments, responses and ratings on YouTube.
6. Winners will be informed on a rolling basis two weeks before each show.
