Eventful, the leading global events Web site, joined forces with Seattle's punk band, The Presidents of the United States of America, to give fans the power to influence their upcoming This is THE GOOD TOUR, which kicks off on March 14, 2008. The Presidents of the United States of America will be using Eventful Demand to let their loyal fans compete to win a spot on the tour. The top five cities will win a chance for the band to come to their city.
Eventful Demand enables fans to influence where their favorite artists perform by creating grass-roots campaigns to "Demand" the artists to come to their town. Tens of thousands of artists, comedians and even politicians are using Eventful Demand to connect with their fans and empower them to shape their tour. Eventful Demand is quickly becoming a phenomenon in the music and entertainment industry.
Band manager, David Meinert, says, "The Presidents of the United States of America has always been dedicated to communicating with their global fan base. With the launch of their new album (coming out March 11, 2008) These Are The Good Times People, PUSA is eager to let their world-wide fans route the upcoming tour, which will allow them to cater to their most 'Demanding' fans."
Launched Wednesday, January 23, 2008, the Demand competition will continue through 2:00 p.m. PT on March 3, 2008 on Eventful.com.
"We love helping build this world-wide connection between the Presidents and their fans," said Jordan Glazier, CEO of Eventful. "This global competition is the first of its kind, and we're excited to help the band shape its tour based on the voice of the fans."
Along with MySpace, YouTube and iTunes, Eventful is an essential part of the online marketing toolkit for performers and artists.
