Be the first in New England to play ‘Gears of War’

You read that right, I am going to give you one of the first chances to play ‘Gears of War’ before anyone else. Read on for the background: ‘Gears of War’ is a sponsor of Megadeth’sGigantour.’ It turns out that Dave Mustaine was inspired by the theme of the game so he wrote a song called “Gears of War” for their upcoming album.

You with me so far? Good…let’s continue:

On Tuesday, October 31st (Halloween) Megadeth is appearing at Six Flags New England where they will debut that new song. Not wanting to miss a chance to hang with Megadeth (and head back home) I scored some passes for myself AND a few lucky readers…but not just any passes: VIP passes. These passes will get you into the park and the Megadeth show PLUS access to the VIP party where you'll get hands on gameplay with ‘Gears of War’ – a full week before the game releases. What's more, MTV will be filming part of the concert for an upcoming show. In addition, I’ll be getting the band on my show for my 200th episode. (Which reminds me..no show this week since I'll be travelling to attend the event, plus I really need to wait and get Megadeth on for my 200th show..right?)

Here is what you need to do: Send me an email with the subject line ‘I want to play Gears of War’ and in the body please tell me your gamertag. Please be within a reasonable driving distance of the park near Springfield, MA.

Note:You and your guest must be 18 or over to attend (sorry..those are the rules of the Park.) I’ll pull a few random winners from the emails I receive before Sunday Oct. 29 at 12n PT. You’ll win two tickets..one for you and one for a friend. Everything else is up to you. If you get picked, I’ll send you an email Sunday evening. Please don’t pester me with a bunch of ‘did I win?’ emails πŸ˜‰
