Fantourage.com, the Web's first-ever celebrity social network, will give away free tickets to summer concerts featuring stars like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas among others, with a new contest that encourages browsers to post their most creative, funny and passionate videos to show why they are the most deserving of the tickets.
The winners, as voted on by the public, will receive two complimentary tickets to their favorite show. The special concert promotion will last through the summer months, and users can join Fantourage.com to upload their video responses and compete with other die-hard fans. Winners will be determined by the number of “thumbs-ups” that they receive.
“Unlike a radio or typical internet promotion, Fantourage.com is a unique and effective method in rewarding those who work hard to support their favorite celebrity,” the Web site's founder John Davie said. “This isn’t a situation where we surprise a lucky man or woman walking on the street. The ticket winners deserve the prize and have proven that they are the most loyal.”
In addition to the aforementioned promotions, the Web site develops online communities for users to gather, support and interact with their favorite celebrities, with a unique loyalty points system that gives celebrities the opportunity to personally connect with their fans that go above and beyond the call of duty while promoting their favorite star.
“For a while, we have doubted the value of paid street team management companies, and had been trying to find a way to digitize our fans,” music manager Xavier Ramirez said. "Fantourage.com seems to be a step in the right direction. It has given fans a place to go and share media content for their favorite bands. Fan ‘forums’ seem like a foreign concept to kids today who grow up in the age of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Fantourage simplifies it all for them.”
