The inaugural outing of the Carnival Of Madness tour begins next month in Jacksonville, FL on July 16th but the festivities are already well underway.
All fans attending the Carnival Of Madness this summer are in for an experience like no other. Two major contests surrounding the event are underway:
PRS Six String Contest
Fans choose a song from one of the bands on this year’s Carnival Of Madness tour and record themselves showing off their best guitar or air guitar performance. Winners will receive tickets, VIP passes and a custom guitar presented ON STAGE and a personal guitar lesson from one of the acts. This contest is for every show on the tour!
Sony Bloggie Cam Sideshow
One lucky fan at each show will receive a Sony Bloggie Cam, two tickets to the show of their choice along with backstage access to shoot the bands hanging out with their new camera!
On top of all that, fans using their Smartphones to download the upcoming Carnival Of Madness app will be able to: play trivia games for prizes in real time including for backstage passes on site, purchase discounted merchandise that can be directly shipped to their homes, and so much more. More details to be announced shortly.
As previously announced, COM headliner Shinedown will be bringing a who’s-who of rock bands along with them this summer: Chevelle, Puddle Of Mudd, Sevendust, and 10 Years for 26 dates across North America.
