VIRGIN MOBILE LIVE PRESENTS BRANDON FLOWERS IN HIS FIRST SOLO SHOW IN CANADA!
TORONTO (ONTARIO) August 10, 2010
On August 25, 2010, Virgin Mobile Live presents an Evening with Brandon Flowers at the Mod Club in the first of an exclusive series of concert events for Virgin Mobile Members. Members will be first in the world to hear the incredible new songs up close and personal ahead of the Flamingo's September 14th release.
The show is the only Canadian date before Brandon Flowers' hotly anticipated solo debut album release “Flamingo.” To get access to the show, Members can either go online for a chance to get tix or fans can earn their spots by doing some good through Virgin Mobile's FREE.I.P. program.
“This is a killer way to kick off the Virgin Mobile Live series. Brandon Flowers at the Mod Club is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime show for Brandon's fans and we're making it the first of what's planned to be an exclusive series of shows for our Members,” says Nathan Rosenberg, Chief Marketing Officer Virgin Mobile Canada. “Shows like this are what being a Member is all about – more access to incredible shows that you can't get anywhere else.”
Members can sign up at www.virginmobile.ca by August 19, 2010 for a chance to be among a handful of fans at the Mod Club gig. Brandon Flowers' fans can also give time to get tickets by volunteering through Virgin Mobile's FREE.I.P. program. Developed in partnership with Virgin Unite, the non-profit foundation of the Virgin Group, the FREE.I.P. program allows fans to volunteer a few hours of their time at one of our partner's shelters for homeless and at-risk youth in exchange for tickets to the show. For details on the FREE.I.P. program, follow Virgin Mobile Canada on Twitter @virginmobilecan.
Produced by Stuart Price, Daniel Lanois, and Brendan O'Brien, Flamingo is a brilliant 10-song collection from an artist whose voice and songwriting prowess have left an indelible mark on the music world. The record is simply a classic American rock album, full of extraordinary choruses, vast instrumentation and Flowers' incredible voice, sounding richer and more diverse than ever before. Inextricably tied to Vegas in both presentation and ideology, Flamingo is packed full of sparkling, stadium-ready songs that run the gamut from expert pop executions and forlorn electro dirges to gospel tunes and even blues-tinged rock. The first single, “Crossfire” is currently heating up on the Alternative and Triple A charts, and is available through all digital service providers now.
Known for his impressive showmanship, Brandon Flowers is one of the music world's most engaging performers. His band, The Killers, have received countless accolades for their dazzling live show. As such, these shows promise to be nothing short of spectacular.
