MySpace Launches Concert Tour
MySpace has announced the launch of the "MySpace Music Tour," a new series of MySpace produced and branded concerts.
The MySpace Music Tour will begin October 16 in Seattle, Washington and will be co-headlined by two groups that have developed a following on the site, Hellogoodbye and Say Anything. Other bands will include MySpace Records artists, Polysics and yet to-be- announced special guests. The tour will include more than 30 shows in the U.S. in October and November.
"MySpace has served as a platform for countless bands and musicians around the world to showcase and promote their music to millions of fans online," said Tom Anderson, president and co-founder of MySpace.
"With the new MySpace Music Tour concert series we are able to bring people face-to-face with the bands and artists they’ve come to know and love on the site. The kick-off tour has an amazing line-up of bands and I know the MySpace community will be psyched to see them live."
The MySpace Music Tour will have a dedicated online community on MySpace, fans will be able to find tour information and purchase tickets. The profile will also feature content, including band blogs from the road, photo galleries and offers and sweepstakes for MySpace users to win a chance to go backstage and meet the bands.
