Eagles of Death Metal at Hollywood and Highland

October 24, 2008 at 9:24 pm (Hollywood Store) (, , , )

I’m April Windsor, and I manage the regional marketing efforts for our California stores. My favorite part of the job is managing our awesome in-store events with artists from all genres. Check out our latest Hollywood & Highland concert below…..

Tonight we hosted a special live performance & signing with local favorite, Eagles of Death Metal. Eagles of Death Metal played an awesome show – Virgin Megastore Hollywood & Highland was transformed in to a real live concert venue! Not that this was the first time, but I was really impressed how the event came together tonight. The band proved to be a truly solid rock ‘n’ roll band, and were very personable with their fans, getting them pumped about the music from stage – they had everyone dancing! They started off the night with a 45 minute set, playing to over 150 fans. All of the band members thought the in-store was great and said they would love to come back any time, if we would have them. Very cool!

This event was in conjunction with the new Rock Star Games video game, Midnight Club Los Angeles, which our Hollywood store and Eagles of Death Metal are featured in. Fans had two options: Pre-order the game, receive 2 wristbands, pre-order the upcoming EofDM album, Heart On, and receive 1 wristband. With each pre-order, fans were given an Eagles of Death Metal poster and free 10” vinyl for the signing.

Thanks to everyone who helped put this event together, especially Rock Star Games, the H&H store team, and Fontana and Rocket Science for hopping on the bandwagon and providing the great GWP’s.
