Blues Traveler fans in several U.S. cities have a unique opportunity this summer to see the group for free and possibly win a trip to the band’s concert in Prague, Czech Republic.
As part of the “Picture Yourself in Prague” contest, the band will perform free club shows in Denver, New York City, Boston, Washington, D.C., Chicago and Atlanta. Tickets will be distributed to adults of legal drinking age on a first-come, first-served basis except in NYC, where they’ll be given out at noon the day of the show.
The concerts take place between July 3 and August 5 and are sponsored by Czech brewer Pilsner Urquell. The company will provide special disposable cameras for fans to take “original, creative” photos featuring Blues Traveler or the beer.
The cameras will be collected after the shows and the pictures judged. One finalist from each city will be chosen to compete for the grand prize: a five-day, four-night trip to Prague for the winner and three guests.
The spring 2005 vacation will include a tour of the company’s brewery and, of course, tickets to Blues Traveler’s Prague concert.
Blues Traveler’s new album, Live On The Rocks, comes out July 13, the day of the NYC stop. In addition to the free shows, they’ll play a number of regular-price gigs this summer, culminating in an August 6 headlining performance for Atlanta’s On The Bricks concert series.
