DUFFY COMES ACROSS THE POND TO VISIT US AT UNION SQUARE

May 22, 2008 at 5:15 pm (Union Square Megastore) (, , )

After blazing the charts in the UK, Duffy has finally made it across the Atlantic with the US release of her new CD “Rockferry”. Our team at the Union Square Megastore were thrilled to host the first ever NYC in-store performance & CD signing for Duffy this week. Fans packed the Union Square location for a 3 song acoustic performance… including her #1 UK single “Mercy”. Check out a clip of Duffy’s performance at

One great moment of the evening was when Union Square manager Jason Matos was meeting Duffy and received a call over his radio and Duffy gladly told the entire store over the radio, “He’s with Duffy!” Check out the photo below! Overall it was another great Union Square in-store moment!

Cheers,

JOSS STONE MAKES SURPRISE APPEARANCE AT HOLLYWOOD MEGASTORE

May 12, 2008 at 10:32 pm (Hollywood Store) (, , )

In the spirit of Brit Week, Joss Stone made an impromptu visit to our Hollywood & Highland store this weekend, after our very own Simon Wright convinced her to do so the night before at an event where they met. Thanks Simon! We had little time to get the word out, but still the crowds packed the store. Joss sang two songs with her guitarist and then sat down to sign CD’s for several fans. She was very sweet and happy to take photos with anyone who came up to meet her. This girl has talent to spare – definitely worthy of a courtyard concert outside our store at the mall at Hollywood and Highland – perhaps for her next release?! Thanks Joss for stopping in our store!

Cheers,
Dee

CLAY AIKEN CREATES QUITE THE COMMOTION AT OUR TIMES SQUARE MEGASTORE:

May 8, 2008 at 1:18 am (Times Square Store) (, , )

Well Clay Aiken fans were out in full force last night as they descended on our Virgin Megastore Times Square – two days early to secure a place in line to meet Clay Aiken. Fans slept on the streets outside our store for two nights waiting for his arrival yesterday afternoon. Clay’s CD went on sale at midnight on Monday and it was quite the event for our friends outside. Hundreds of fans chanted as midnight approached in anticipation of purchasing “On My Way Here”. Multiple copies were bought by each fan making it a record breaking Clay Aiken fan night! Clay arrived at the Virgin Times Square on May 6th just before his scheduled 2PM signing from his busy TV appearance schedule in NYC. Clay Fans (not to be mistaken with the Clay Mates) clapped and screamed as he went down the escalator. We were only able to get the first 300 fans in to meet him, due to his packed schedule — however we look forward to having him back again in our stores soon. In case you couldn’t make it out – check out the video below.

Cheers,
Dee

Virgin VIP Winner Sulin Yao got the chance to meet her favorite star Clay Aiken yesterday at the instore. Sulin was very excited to have this opportunity and said, “I never win anything, glad I signed up for VIP!” It was a very exciting moment as Sulin and Clay had the opportunity to chat before he signed CDs for 300 eager fans. Clay even inquired about our VIP program and loved that we offer such a unique opportunity for our customer’s.
