Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) will offer fans an opportunity to showcase their vocal talents and test their trivia skill during the PlayStation® “Take the Stage™” Tour. The twenty-one week national mall and college campus tour will kick-off November 7 at the Colorado Mills mall in Denver, Colorado and will showcase BUZZ!™ and SingStar® titles for the PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment systems.
Aspiring artists looking to rock the microphone can “Take the Stage with SingStar®” on the main platform and have a chance to win a recording session at the PlayStation Music Studios. The main stage will also feature “BUZZ!™ Breaks”, inviting interested participants up to engage in 15-minute rounds of trivia. “Backstage” from the main platform, 10 sampling kiosks will be present allowing all consumers to sample the BUZZ! and SingStar games.
The “Take the Stage with SingStar” contest will occur at all stops along the tour giving participants the opportunity to test their vocal ability with hit songs from SingStar Vol. 2 for the PS3 system and the SingStore™ including those from artists such as Weezer, Cyndi Lauper, Britney Spears, The Police, and more. Upon completion of their performance, onstage participants will be added to the online leaderboard, which will track all scores, nationwide, at http://www.takethestagetour.com. At the end of the tour, the contestant with the highest score across the country will win a trip for two to San Francisco for a recording session at the PlayStation Music Studios, in addition to a PS3 system and a copy of SingStar Vol. 2. There will be additional prizes for second and third place entrants.
Throughout each event day, the “Take the Stage” Tour will be hosting “BUZZ! Shopping Breaks”, giving trivia fans opportunities to win BUZZ! prizes by answering BUZZ! trivia questions on their cell phones. To enter, participants must text “BUZZ! Keywords” to a short-code to generate their trivia question. Participants will have a chance to win with three BUZZ! prize drawings taking place each day.
